Yes, I believe the term Twitter uses is "Shadowban".

The key thing is that the user thinks they are successfully trolling, but isn't aware that their posts don't get the audience they used to get. Facebook does something similar, where groups which have a history of spreading fake news are promoted to other users by Facebook's algorithm less often.
