C99 Is being actively censored.

Screenshot_2018-08-16 caucus99percent - Twitter Search(1)_0.png

People search on Twitter. I stupidly never got around to following C99. If you followed it before we were banned, you still will occasionally see it.

If you didn't WE DON'T EXIST.

Yippee, we are victims then, I think we should be proud of it.

Indeed. It is a badge of honour.

And proof that Twitter sucks as badly as Facebook does.

@thanatokephaloides Just thought folks should know.

For me it's more akin to catching somebody red-handed when you KNEW they were gaslighting and lying to you. Fuckers.

as c99 links to facebook and twitter on the front page, is not all our content transmitted to their servers in the sky immediately; where i presume algorithms add our works to the soup, straining by per-ordained formulas substantive information to be used possibly in nefarious ways or sold to advertisers.

Maybe, this happens from our service providers already, i don't know; it's bothersome.

Serious question ...
as c99 links to facebook and twitter on the front page, is not all our content transmitted to their servers in the sky immediately;

I don't think so. It's my understanding that the front page links are to c99's pages on Facebook and Twitter. Flow of content to these pages is managed my the c99 users in charge of those pages.

I could be wrong, however...... Sad

The act of crossposting must be physically done in order for c99's material to show up on FB or Twitter. Gulfgal publishes c99 to Twitter, and I publish it to FB.

@thanatokephaloides i logged in just to do so, and I followed anyone I vaguely recognized. I'm sure I missed people, so I'll go back and follow more of my cyber friends.

When I go to twitter.com home page, there are no options to search for anyone or any group, you just get prompted to create an account. Which I am not willing to do.

However, searching google for “caucus99% twitter” brought me directly to the c99 twitter feed. It certainly does exist, and I found it easily.

Now maybe the search within twitter is screening c99% out of the results. But since I’m not a member, I can’t test that.

I am not following you. I see our posts in my Twitter thread. Not all of them, but some. I am not on Twitter all that much, so I'm sure I miss many of them. What you saying you can't find where?

@dkmich 6 accounts show up instead of anything associated with us. ALL Democrat Politicians and ALL politicians that certain people are telling us we HAVE to vote for.

Of course it's all a huge coincidence, and I'm sure that if I just take the time to adjust the filters it will show up.

A year ago I wanted to get everyone prepped for an actual shutdown. Now we only have to contend with isolation and marginalization, but we still have a community. When they shut down Russia Today — the only national television broadcast facility for non-CIA voices — then we will have something to worry about.

First, I link nearly every essay posted here with a few exceptions: open threads, personal threads, and pie fights. Detroit, I have linked every one of your Logos essays so if you are not seeing them, I do not know what to say. They show up in C99's Tweets. Are you a member of Twitter and do you follow us?

According to the stats that I see for our account, we earned nearly 1,500 impressions in the last 24 hours. All the links that I posted recently show up in the C99 tweets. If we are being shadow banned, I do not know how to determine that.

I try to post every evening between 8 and 9 pm Eastern time because I believe that is when we are most likely to get the most visibility in the Twitter feeds of those who follow us. There are times when I am unable to post due to other obligations or travel, but I usually will catch up on the posting within the following 48 hours.

Both dkmich and I volunteered to get C99 more visibility via social media. However, we can only do so much. It is very helpful for those of you who have Twitter accounts to follow us and to uprate and retweet our posts. I have noticed that interaction on our Twitter posts has decreased somewhat lately, but have chalked it up to this being the summer when people are busy doing other things.

I am very concerned about charges that we are being censored and would like to hear from anyone else who is having a problem seeing our feed, particularly from those here who have followed the C99 Twitter feed.

@gulfgal98 But, the fact that you don't know that I'm a member of twitter and have been ALSO posting the Logos every single day... @detroit15

See, here's the thing. I KNOW I followed C99 on twitter when I first heard about it. I keep trying to remember when I would have Unfollowed. Can't remember ever thinking "I really need to stop following c99" ONCE.

But, I look yesterday, not only can't find it in my feed, but can't find it in a people search, and I find out that most of my 611 current followers weren't even aware that I was writing. (By the crazy non-scientific method of just asking them)

So, Either I'm crazy, which is what my brain is trying to convince me of. OR something does NOT add up. The people search that I screenshot was a simple search on default settings for C99.

Twitter claims they're "Adjusting Their Algorithm". But seeing as it's already been confirmed they suppressed the DNC Leaks, and numerous other political embarrassments, it's clear that social media is no longer directed by the people who actually use it.

Not going to delete it, but not going to bother with trying to use it to spread my ideas. Much like current popular metal, Social Media is Dead

@detroitmechworks type caucus99 in the search. I did not set this up but that is how you find us.

Of course, it is easier to use the link on the left.

Again, I do not believe we are being banned. We have a grand total of only 273 followers and our content is not nearly as controversial as many of the people and sites that C99 follows. So I have no idea why they would even care to ban us. I have posted the impressions stats above and we have had retweets and comments on our tweets in the last 24 hours.

Most of our followers on Twitter come from either people who are already members here or from people who have seen one of our links or the comments that I make on behalf of C99 on other tweets. Without dkmich initially volunteering to do this, C99 would not even have a Facebook or Twitter account. We do our best to maintain these accounts in a timely manner.

You aren't imagining things, detroitmechworks. Caitlin Johnstone covered this back in March: More Evidence That Twitter Is Unfollowing People From Anti-Establishment Accounts

While I don't want to disuade folks from using the various venues such as Twitter and Facebook, etc., to promote C99, I think it's also wise to be aware that we can be intentionally diminished on platforms not under our control. And why would they not do so? Of course they will use whatever means are at their disposal.

@gulfgal98

Every community needs a member or two like you and dkmich, and are blessed when that happens.

The answers to questions about how sharing is working can be found in our own server logs and analytics. The object of the game is the number of visitors that come here to read directly from Twitter (or Facebook) to read. There is a monthly total saved from the time you began, and before that. There would be a drop-off and steady decline if c99 was shadowbanned.

By the same token, the server we use will show us if or when Google throttled us out of its indexing. All of these specific referrals will be reflected in overall visitor counts across any time frame. When people come from following their own bookmarks, that is also shown. It can get very detailed.

It's almost classic gaslighting.

Well, Wink, you probably did follow the account. See my reply to detroitmechworks, above.
