Twitter is automatically censoring (shadowbanning) all my tweets that contain pictures and links

    I just found out about this recently when I was looking at a tweet under which I posted while I was logged out and couldn't find it. Then when I logged in again, my tweet suddenly was there again.

    I digged deeper and searched my account name while logged out and found out that all of my tweets that contain links and pictures get automatically withheld from the public, but only when i post under certain accounts.

    I am from Germany and I make lots of critical posts about the refugee politic of our government and the only accounts under which twitter is censoring my tweets is under the accounts of our big political parties.

    I am not a troll, at least 95% of my comments under tweets of these accounts were objective and constructive and I often attached links and statistics to further prove my point.

    Apparently someone didn't like that I was giving critical feedback because I was going against the predominant narrative. You often see that tweets of these parties got 30+ replies, but when you click on them there often are just 3-5 replies shown...

    Creating another account on my IP did not work, it seems the picture ban is IP wide. And yes, I have seen other people post pictures under the accounts of our big parties, so this is specific to my IP (and probably many others as well).

    Any thoughts on this? Anyone else has this problem?

    I am also very new to this VPN stuff and I tried Zenmate, but when I make new accounts with Zenmate on, they get banned after a few minutes (probably because Zenmate is changing the location from time to time). So it would be nice if anyone can recommend some good free VPN that does works with twitter.

    Thx

    Free is not going to work as anything "free" will be commercial data center ip's and Twitter mass bans those. Residential is what you need.

    My account is from 2015 (or 14). I have heard of this list, but I am not on it and the list is quite specific to the US as far as I know... I am from Germany.

    I doubt that list would just be limited to the U.S. or that would justify the same activity in every other country and just hit U.S. accounts. That wouldn't make much sense.

    It's a common thing they do now. Anyone that says otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about. Only thing you can do is use a zillion accounts, zillion domains, and follow about 50 people per day per account.
