Possible discovery of the Twitter admin censorship panel

[In July, 2020,] ...hackers gained access to many of the top accounts on the site, screenshots of the platform’s administration panel were released showing administrators have the ability to blacklist accounts from being searched for or being allowed to trend on the app. Several screenshots, allegedly of a “secret admin panel” were circulating last night, presumably made by the hackers themselves. Twitter seemed to confirm they were genuine when it began to suspend every account that shared the images.
