Twitter censorship/shadowban checker

Desktop application that shows if replies to or from a Twitter user are being censored.

Check your replies to see if you're being censored (a "shadowban"). Check replies to a newsmaker to see how heavily Twitter censors replies to them.

The application uses browser automation to surf Twitter like a real user would, and writes HTML reports showing which tweets were censored.

Note: despite claims to the contrary, Twitter heavily censors all kinds of users. They don't limit it to just one group.
