Liberal social media giant Twitter has been caught out secretly censoring people they think are ‘deplorable’ and ‘shitty’. It’s the last example of liberal intolerance that’s putting serious strain on their business model and forcing people who value free speech to look for alternatives.
Since August 2016 free speech Twitter-substitute Gab has been leading the way with exposing the double standards, hypocrisy, and mass censorship of Big Social Media companies in Silicon Valley.
Gab has been hammering away about shadow-banning, hypocritical one-sided rule enforcement, unfair treatment of conservatives and Trump supporters, and one-sided political agendas being pushed by these multi-billion dollar communication platforms that are used by hundreds of millions of people.
Over the last several months they’ve been working closely with Project Veritas to help them infiltrate these big technology companies and expose the mass censorship and corruption happening each and everyday. Thanks to James O’Keefe and his team there is now undeniable proof of Twitter employees admitting that censorship, double standards, and hypocrisy are indeed happening on these platforms.
Olinda Hassan is a Policy Manager for Twitter’s Trust and Safety Team. Her team is responsible for the enforcement of Twitter’s rules and regulation, deciding who and what is allowed to be on the platform. Project Veritas caught her on camera saying this:
PV Journalist: “But how do you keep, like, my timeline… how do you keep certain things off my timeline? People will like retweet people.
Olinda: “We’re trying to down rank it, but you also need to have control of your timeline.”
PV Journalist: I’ve tried to, like block people like Cernovich and stuff like that and mute and stuff like that, but they still show up, like all the time.
Olinda: Yeah. That’s something we’re working on. It’s something we’re working on. We’re trying to get the shitty people to not show up. It’s a product thing we’re working on.”
Some of the other admissions captured by Project Veritas are staggering, and confirm everything that Gab has been saying since August 2016: Silicon Valley is censoring Trump supporters, conservatives, and anyone else they disagree with politically. Here’s a quote from a former member of Twitter’s Content Review Team:
PV Journalist: …a user end services person would deem it: “Pro-Trump,” and take it down?
Mo Norai: Yeah, if they said this is: “Pro-Trump” I don’t want it because it offends me, this, that. And I say I banned this whole thing, and it goes over here and they are like, Oh you know what? I don’t like it too. You know what? Mo’s right, let’s go, let’s carry on, what’s next?
PV Journalist: So, I flag something it’s going to go by you….
Mo Norai: Correct, and they you know you’re looking at it and you’re like: “Oh hey, this is Pro-Trump ….I don’t like it.
Gab broke the story a few days ago in an email to their rapidly growing list of users. Now the story has been picked up by the Daily Mail.
This fresh wave of bad publicity for Twitter will see another spike in growth for Gab. Their up-beat email reveals that “In just a few weeks we’ve reserved over $1.4 million dollars for Gab’s next funding round. Not from Silicon Valley Venture Capitalists or special interests, but directly from our users.”
They go on to appeal: “You can join us on our journey to build an alternative platform that supports individual liberty, freedom of speech, and the free flow of information on the internet. Click here to reserve your investment in Gab and help us take on the hypocritical tech oligarchs in Silicon Valley.”
