Kangana feels she is shadow banned by Twitter as her followers decrease
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has been raising her voice against the ‘movie mafia’ and practice of nepotism in the film industry.
Taking to Twitter, Kangana recently said that she is losing around 40,000- 50,000 followers every day on Twitter. She said that it was ‘unfair’ but added that ‘nationalists have to struggle everywhere’.
It started when one of Kangana’s followers claimed that her follower count is decreasing on Twitter and it went down from 992k to 988k in the span of an hour. She replied, “I agree I notice pattern every day 40-50 thousand followers drop, I am very new to this place but how does this work? Why are they doing this any idea? @TwitterIndia @jack @TwitterSupport.”
Another follower suggested that she has been shadow banned for promoting ‘nationalistic sentiments’. Shadow banning is a form of Twitter censorship in which the microblogging site hides or blocks your content from your followers and other Twitter users. This happens if one is in violation of Twitter’s policies.
Kangana seemed to agree with this explanation and said, “Hmm I see Nationalists have to struggle everywhere, racket is so strong, I noticed because last night we were to very close to a million, anyway, sincere apologies to all those who are getting unfollows automatically, so unfair but aren’t we used to this now?”
Kangana has been seeking justice for Sushant. She has alleged that the ‘movie mafia’ tried to destroy his career and used their connections in the media to plant fake blind articles about him.
