For those of you watching for Twitter staff adding Conservative-favored stuff to you interests so the "Conversational Health" algorithm can find you and suppress your tweets, the new interests they are using are

"Justified" "U.S Military" and "Veterans"
They've also been using "The Last Ship", "The Apprentice USA" and "The Five" as well as the more obvious ones, like "Trump Supporters" and "Conservative Politics"
I know a lot of people question this, but the results speak for themselves: I've added over 7,000 followers in the 2 weeks I've been checking my "Twitter Interests" every day and turning off the new Conservative-themed interests Twitter staff keep sticking in there.
You have to check it several times a day, they will keep turning stuff active again. Keep turning them off, and the algorithm can't find you.

Spot the new ones they add. You'll see stuff pop into your interests that you have NEVER tweeted about.
For those asking how to find their 'Twitter Interests' settings:

On your profile menu: "Settings And Privacy"

Scroll down the menu and find "Your Twitter Data"

Once the Twitter Data window is up, scroll down and find "Your Twitter Interests".
Turn off EVERY Republican, Conservative, Christian, Military themed interest.

All of them.

Oh I just spotted a new one: "Christian And Gospel".
OK for those asking how to find their "Twitter Interests" settings on mobile.

You actually have to follow SIX DIFFERENT STEPS to bring them up. Screenshots follow.
STEP ONE: On your scroll down profile menu, find "Settings And Privacy" and select it.
STEP TWO: Find the "Content Preferences" option and select it. In the new window on the right, find the section that says "Personalization and data"
STEP THREE: On the "Content Preferences" page, in the "General" menu, go all the way down to the bottom and find the active link there, "See your Twitter data" and select it.
STEP FOUR: A new window will open. Find the option box that says "Interests and ads data" and select it.
STEP FIVE: Find the option box that says "Inferred interests from twitter" and select it.
STEP SIX: Uncheck every single interest that identifies you as a Conservative, Christian, Trump Supporter, military or veteran.

Look for TV shows with Conservative fan base that you don't tweet about.
So this is how they are using the "Twitter Interests" feature against their own users. You *self-identify* yourself as a Conservative thru your Tweeting, then they use the Conservative-themed interests to trigger the althorithm they wrote.
"Here's a person who tweets about Donald Trump, Conservatives, Christians and bad stuff like that. He's hurting Twitter's conversational health! Go get'em, suppression algorithm!"
And if you get wise to what they're doing and start turning off these check boxes for "Donald Trump" & "Trump Supporters" & "Conservative Politics"?

They start getting really clever & sneaking other interests in there that they've programmed to algorithm to look for.
You'll suddenly see TV shows you've never tweeted about in years or ever start popping up on your "Twitter Interests" page: "The Apprentice USA", "The Five" "The Last Ship" "Justified".

Also interests not BLATANTLY conservative like "Political Commentary", etc.
From around March to mid June of this year I went from 75,000 followers to 95,000.

And then....for over four months, from mid-June to mid-September, I hung right there at 95,000. I added around 1,000 new followers in 4 months.

I commented on this several times.
After I learned how Twitter staff was using a suppression algorithm to look at Twitter user's Interests to spot the Conservatives & Trump supporters on here & suppress their Tweets [to 'improve Twitter's conversational health', of course!] I started taking action.
I started checking my Twitter Interests settings several times a day and turning off all the interests that were being used to target my account.

Since mid-September when I started doing this, I've gone from 96,000 followers to 103,000.

That's 6,000 new followers in 3 weeks
Now, is this just an amazing coincidence that my follower count suddenly started growing again once I began doing this?

I don't think so.
