Twitter features: Twitter is testing new feature to tell users about account suspension: This is what will change
The notices will show up as a banner on the top of your Twitter feed. As reported by The Verge, Twitter is presently testing this feature with a small percentage of Twitter users on Android, iOS and Web.

The report further revealed that the company started testing this feature after getting feedback from users. Twitter users said that they realised that their account was suspended or locked and in read-only mode when they tried to tweet or follow a new account.
The company also tweeted about this feature to inform the users. Twitter Support tweeted, “Knowing where your account stands is important. We’re testing a new way of letting you know — right when you log in. If your account is locked or suspended, some of you will start seeing a banner making that clear.”
The new Twitter notices will offer additional information and guidance to the users whose account is locked or suspended. In case your account has been permanently suspended then you can submit an appeal. And if your account is locked then you will gain full access after a week.
Recently, Twitter announced the shut down of its year old feature — Fleets earlier this week. Within a year of the launch of Fleets, Twitter feels that Fleets has no future and has announced that it is shutting down Fleets starting August 3, 2021. The social media platform also said that instead of Fleets it will introduce “other ways for people to share on Twitter”.
Twitter admitted that not many users were interested in Fleets. “We haven’t seen an increase in the number of new people joining the conversation with Fleets like we hoped,” it said in a blog post.
