Social media is largely run by left-leaning flying monkeys. You know it, I know it, they know it. Twitter, where internet trolls gather en masse, is no different. Except in James O’Keefe’s latest sting, Twitter is now admitting to targeting conservatives with algorithms and shadow-bans.
From Project Veritas:
In the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation, nine current and former Twitter employees are on camera explaining steps the social media giant is taking to censor political content that they don’t like.
Lemme run through a few points:
- Yes, James O’Keefe got busted by Washington Post for trying to catch Washington Post in the Roy Moore scandal. Washington Post did vet Roy Moore’s accusers. Which is how it discovered Project Veritas.
- Multiple things can be true at once. James O’Keefe’s team got skunked by Washington Post. But James O’Keefe also caught Twitter.
- Investigations are work products. While I wish James O’Keefe had admitted Washington Post had done its due diligence with investigations, I’m not going to toss this new investigation into Twitter simply because O’Keefe didn’t own to his ownage in a separate case.
Now to Twitter. The video above is part two in a series. We didn’t cover part one because it was mostly Twitter employees admitting to not liking Trump. Duh. We know Twitter is as left leaning as Bernie Sanders’ wispy flyaways. People are free to like who they like and not what they don’t. Twitter is a private company who can work with the feds if they chose, and not work with the feds (like Apple) if they chose. I’m not disputing their right to operate their company how they want to operate their company. Okay? Okay.
However, Twitter isn’t being honest. That’s the problem. Twitter can run their algorithms to only show flattering photos of air-brushed Hillary Clinton for all I care. But Twitter, as a business, does have a duty to be honest to its customers, no? Twitter can hardly claim to be a venue for exchanging ideas if it targets ideas it doesn’t like… without letting those customers know they’re being targeted.
Twitter also engages in clear bias against conservatives. Having a bias is one thing. Applying force unequally is another. Liberal users get a pass on abuse and harassment where conservatives don’t. For some context, read Rosie O’Donnell Violated Ben Shapiro’s Civil Rights. Where’s Twitter? and Chelsea Handler Tweets Homophobic Attack at Lindsey Graham.
What I’m asking for is a little transparency from the social media titan. Is that so much to ask?
