October 28, 2018 Tim Pool 1

Gab is being accused of allowing people to be radicalized on their platform and are being smeared.  The shut-down of Gab shows that it may be impossible for a social media site that opposes censorship to compete with the tech giants.

California Judge Ruled Twitter Can Be Sued for Falsely Advertising Free Speech

June 19, 2018 Breitbart 0

A California judge ruled that Twitter can be sued for advertising free speech and then banning users with whom they disagree. Twitter has frequently promised not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation, but it has frequently violated this promise, especially targeting conservatives. Twitter lost its argument that it has a first amendment right to ban whoever it likes from its platform, for whatever reason, and the case will move forward to set a precedent for social media.

Twitter Allows Leftists to Dox and Make Death Threat Against EPA Chief Scott Pruitt

June 6, 2018 Breitbart 0

The far-left Occupy Wall Street organization ‘doxxed’ EPA chief Scott Pruitt and exposed his home address, in addition to encouraging their followers to take a pitchfork to him directly.  While Twitter removes conservative voices from its platform for merely hurting people’s feelings, the company has no problem with the prolonged hate campaign against Pruitt, and is now allowing an actual death threat to remain published.

Twitter Is Being Sued for Censorship of Free Speech

March 1, 2018 Red Ice 1

Jared Taylor, founder of American Renaissance, believes that the white race has a slightly higher IQ and a lower crime rate than the black race. For expressing his views, Taylor’s Twitter account was suspended, and he is now suing Twitter to test the strength of freedom-of-speech. Please be aware that, although this case involves an unpopular view relating to race, the underlying principle can be – and will be – applied to the free expression of opinion on many other topics as well – including religion, morality, health, personal relationships, and political opinion.

Teen Activist, David Hogg, Unleashes Boycott on NRA after Twitter Threatens to Ban Critics

February 26, 2018 Gateway Pundit 0

David Hogg, the poster child of the teen activist group from the Florida school shooting, started a Twitter campaign against the NRA, threatening the organization’s corporate donors, including Fed Ex and their customers. Twitter announced it would ban anyone who “harasses” Hogg, and his teen cohorts. This amounts to protecting him from disagreement or criticism on Twitter. The targeted corporate sponsors already have caved in to the pressure.

Rumors That Twitter Is Planning To Take Down Trump’s Account

January 16, 2018 InfoWars 0

Jason Fyk says that when Twitter shut down President Trump from its platform for 10 minutes, it was to test public reaction. Twitter may be planning to take down his account permanently. Facebook recently blocked the opportunity for hundreds of thousands of people to make money from their Internet content. Fyk calls for regulations, but can we trust Congress? The problem is far more systemic than that. The solution starts with draining the swamp in schools and government.

Hi-Tech Communism: Twitter Employs Shadow Banning and Unequal Political Targeting

January 12, 2018 Veritas Visuals 1

A Twitter engineer says the US government pressures Twitter to take down some accounts. Another one says Twitter uses a “shadow ban”, which blocks someone without them knowing it. They continue posting, but no one sees their content. Twitter prioritizes and sometimes mutes or blocks all Tweets before they are sent out. The name for this is censorship. The majority of algorithm filters are used against Republicans and those who use words like America, the Constitution, and God.
