A “nonbinary neurodivergent queer” (we’re going with he/him) Software Engineer at Twitter admitted on his personal account that he uses internal company mechanisms to try to censor “hate speech” that he finds personally offensive.
“Use in-app reporting mechanism, hear back ‘no violation’, escalate case internally,” he wrote in October.
The employee often expressed chagrin at what he views as a lack of regulation of speech on the app, and even called for the complete deplatforming of “Nazis,” which is leftist code for “anyone who disagrees with me:”
“Pleasantly surprised that we actually did the right thing by deverifying some prominent Nazi clods,” he said in November. “Now maybe we can deplaftorm the rest of them.”
Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer, who has 200,000 followers and is both Jewish and most certainly not a Nazi, was deverified in Twitter’s purge of blue check marks last November.
The employee, who uses the app anonymously, works in the company’s Seattle office.
He refers to himself as a “maintenance programmer” in one tweet, and an “SRE” (Site Reliability Engineer) in another.
The Tweets are quite revealing. They provide a glimpse into how Twitter operates behind the scenes, showing that censorship is not just algorithmic, but part of the leftist culture at the company. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that Twitter “leans left” in an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter Saturday.
Twitter employees have admitted on hidden camera that the company “shadow bans” those whom they feel have inappropriate views. Those people always seem to be politically right-of-center.
By comparison, leftist users of the micro-blogging site are allowed far more latitude. Sarah Jeong, for example, the virulently anti-white racist editor who was just hired by the New York Times, is allowed a platform without repercussions.
President Donald J. Trump recently addressed social media censorship (a tad bit ironically) on Twitter.
“Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others…….” he wrote.

The company has publicly denied censoring users based on ideology during a time when prominent conservatives, including Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, and Tommy Robinson have been censored by Silicon Valley giants.

OOPS: Intelligence Community Admits Briefing Over Russian Interference For Trump, Sanders “Overstated”
The experts got it wrong again.
Figures within the U.S intelligence community are rushing to walk back reports that the intel community has concluded Russia is waging election interference operations with the express intent of re-electing President Donald Trump and boosting the campaign of Democratic frontrunner.
Reports of the intel community’s purported conclusion on the matter surfaced days ago, when the Washington Post reported that the entity had briefed the campaign of Bernie Sanders on Russian attempts to assist his candidacy.
Now, national security officials have sought to clarify the matter, explaining to CNN that the individual tasked with providing Sanders a brief on the topic “overstated” the intelligence community’s beliefs.
The vaguely defined intelligence community apparently has concluded that Russia is orchestrating purported interference campaigns in the election. But it’s much less clear if Russia is explicitly looking to re-elect Trump as President.
Two intelligence community officials who spoke to CNN described the leading media characterization of intelligence on Russian interference as poor. One said it “lacked nuance,” and another outright described it as “misleading.
“A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that. It’s more that they understand the President is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker,” one bureaucrat was quoted as saying by CNN.
Reports of wide-ranging Russian interference have proven as wildly unreliable as any widely-reported on story in the American political press in the last four years. After Robert Mueller’s dramatic and seemingly endless probe ended in an outright flop- failing to produce evidence of any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and questionably impactful Russian social media trolling operations, it’s safe to say anything the mainstream media reports on the unending conspiracy should be treated with skepticism.
