BIG TECH DISCRIMINATION? Twitter Suspends Entire Leadership Team of ‘Latinos for Trump’ From Platform

They were reinstated today after a brief suspension from the social media giant.

Published

The “Latinos for Trump” organization issued a press release on Wednesday indicating that their entire leadership team had been suspended from Twitter, in another Big Tech attack against right-wing conservatives.

“On September 18th, Twitter management suspended the accounts for the entire leadership team of Latinos for Trump organization, who operates under Americanos. As a company that claim’s [sic] its purpose is ‘to serve the public conversation,’ the unjustified suspensions of these accounts is not only contrary to their stated purpose, but also silences the voice of a significant minority group,” the release said.

They announced in a social media post that they were finally reinstated on Friday. The effected accounts were listed as @FabMagaDiva, @reallatinos4US, @WeAreAmericanos, @HispanicTrumpTX, @CassieJ_Tx, @secureUSA45, @mgtz1995, @Spi3, @Spi3inc, @orejitagirl, and @HenryGrullon4.

The Latinos for Trump claim that Twitter offered them no reason as to why they made the decision to suspend the various accounts.

“Twitter suspended our user accounts without providing a warning and without providing a reason for the suspension,” the press release said. “We are still conducting an internal review of the situation but have found nothing to justify a suspension.”

“What we have found is the suspect timing and comprehensive nature of the suspensions. These suspension came in less than 48 hours since President Trump held his rally in New Mexico. During this rally, numerous Hispanic supporters where seen on TV wearing ‘Latinos for Trump’ T-shirts. In less than 48 hours later, all our leadership accounts were suspended by Twitter,” they added.

The group believes that Twitter’s actions are a form of discrimination, as the leftist thought control apparatus desperately wants to suppress minority voices that support President Trump.

“Although Twitter claims to enforce their rules ‘impartially and consistently’ and will let someone know ‘about actions taken against your account and why,’ they have not. Although Twitter claims to ‘be transparent about actions we take,’ they have not,” the release said.

“We are deeply troubled by the overly secretive and discriminatory actions by Twitter management against our Latino based group. We also invite greater public scrutiny into the troubling actions of Twitter,” the release adds.

As Twitter and other Big Tech platforms get more restrictive heading into the 2020 presidential election, the only way to stop their Big Brother scheming may be to change their regulatory status under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has introduced legislation to do just that:

Hawley’s bill, the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, would remove that exemption for Big Tech firms if they act like publishers instead of neutral platforms. Corporations would have to comply with external audits proving their algorithms and content moderation are not biased.

“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship,” Hawley said in a statement. “Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”

With Big Tech so dedicated to their plan to use Orwellian censorship to manipulate next year’s presidential election, legislation such what has been proposed by Hawley may be the only thing that can reign them in and protect our democracy.

Twitter Suspending Bloomberg Bots for Coordinated Fake Engagement

The Bloomberg campaign is taking a page from the strategy of supposed Russian bots.

Published

on

Twitter began suspending more than 70 pro-Michael Bloomberg accounts from its platform on Friday, citing supposed inauthentic and coordinated behavior.

The platform was alerted to the suspicious behavior by the Los Angeles Times, and shortly after began suspending the accounts.

The reports of the Bloomberg bots are reminiscent of the claims of Russian bots waging influence campaigns in U.S elections. Both operations apparently involve scripted messaging, fake political engagement, and platform manipulation.

Evidence of identical messaging being spread by dubious pro-Bloomberg accounts was published by the Los Angeles Times in their report on the matter Friday.

A statement from Twitter on the suspensions confirmed the Bloomberg shill accounts violated the platform’s rules by “creating multiple accounts to post duplicative content” and “coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account.

The accounts avoid direct connections to the Bloomberg campaign, in an attempt to avoid being identified as coordinated shill accounts.

Bloomberg is paying a considerable cohort of “deputy field organizers” $2,500 a month to shill for the New York oligarch on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. The messaging strategy is relatively unprecedented in American politics, offering cash directly for a constant stream of political messaging on personal social media accounts.

The Bloomberg campaign claims that paid deputy field organizers are required to identify their affiliation with the campaign in a statement regarding the suspensions. As Bloomberg’s online social media strategy copies a page from the book of supposed malicious Russian bots, high-ranking U.S intelligence community personnel are claiming that the Russian bots are active once again in attempts to promote the campaigns of both Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump.
