The question as to whether Twitter shadowbans certain tweets rages on with no definitive answer yet. As usual, Twitter vehemently denies ever engaging in shadowbanning, which is essentially speech censoring.
Rather than accuse Twitter of shadowbanning/censoring I’ll let you look at this video and decide for yourself if Twitter hid/shadowbanned/censored my tweet about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s military discharge. I report, you decide!!
Also check out this March 12 tweet tagging DOJ-OIG, DHS-OIG and DOD-OIG. It shows that it has two replies but the replies are not visible. One reply shows up every now and then but when you click on it, it does not point to this OIG tweet. Weird.
Also check out this April 17 tweet about FoxNews’ Tomi Lahren downplaying covid-19. The tweet clearly shows that it has 9 replies but only one reply is shows up when you click on the tweet. It is in reply to a Trump tweet. Hmm
Also check out this May 1 tweet about FBI’s cointelpro surveillance program. Why does it keep disappearing? Hmm
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out.
