Is Twitter Shadowbanning supporters of Iranian Regime Change?

Over the past couple of months, we have noticed many of our friends and fellow supporters of Iranian Regime Change have been being locked, shadowbanned and even suspended by Twitter.  There’s no secret that Twitter, as a company, has always leaned to the left, but how far to the left? Would they ever stoop as low as to support a terrorist regime?

Two days ago, we noticed we were not seeing any of Heshmat Alavi (who contributes to Forbes, The Hill, The DailyCaller, etc) tweets. So we started to do some research and found his account and many others, including one of our own accounts, had been hit with a QFD ban.

QFD was ‘officially’ introduced in May 2018 as part of Twitter’s so-called ‘healthy conversation project.’ although the practice was first reported by Project Veritas in January 2018. QFD causes your tweets to be invisible within the latest section of the search, including hashtags, when the quality filter is turned on. Note that this quality filter is located on the search page, is turned on by default and will be reset for each search anew. It differs from the quality filter controlling your notifications.

So how can you remove the QFD ban from your Twitter account? Freedom For Iran(FFI) was able to get our QFD ban removed by tweeting directly to @Jack @Delbius and @TwitterSupport with a lot of “likes” and “Retweets” from our supporters but for the most part, there’s no way without Twitter intervention.

Andrew Torba, the CEO of, a week ago posted a video on YouTube about this very subject.
