    If you were wondering if you are shadowbanned, try this tool: https://shadowban.azurewebsites.net/

    It checks if you appear in all the hashtags.

    How does it work?

    "It simply looks at the "instapp:hashtags" and "video:tag" meta tags. When these are missing, the photo is stripped of its tags when viewed through the API. We believe this is a big part of the issue impacting hashtag searches."

    For me it says that I am shadowbanned but even when I check on an account that does not follow my account, the photos appear in the search.

    This doesn't work well. I've used other accounts searching for hashtags for recent posts and although that link says the account wasn't shadowbanned, it was wrong.
