I am starting to wonder, it looks like censorship to me, or LinkedIn deliberately hiding my post from my network. Here is the story: I've appeared on podcast and as a normal person shared it(post from podcast page) with my network.

This is something we need people with bigger audiences to realize. Sure, Twitter has that "special sauce" that just keeps you scrolling for hours and hours. It's in Twitter's best interest to rope you in. It's that same "special sauce" that means that the majority of your followers don't see your posts unless they explicitly go looking for them.
