In a shocking plot twist to the recent pattern of censorship of conservatives on social media, the CEO of Twitter is standing up to leftist mob and defending Alex Jones.
“We didn’t suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday,” wrote Jack Dorsey on his platform. “We know that’s hard for many but the reason is simple: he hasn’t violated our rules. We’ll enforce if he does. And we’ll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren’t artificially amplified.”

Though there should not be anything “hard” about platforming dissenting opinions, the political left was troubled by Twitter’s refusal to cave and ban Jones, like their peers at Apple, YouTube (Google), and Facebook.
For now, Jack has thrown Jones and InfoWars a bone, perhaps understanding that they need the political right to use their platform in order to stay in business. Unlike the other tech giants that have banned Jones, Twitter just became profitable for the first time in Q1 of 2018. Rocking the boat now is probably not sensible, especially when right wing personalities like President Trump are the only reason many users are on the platform.
That said, Twitter has an atrocious record when it comes to making sure that conservatives are allowed to voice their opinions on platform.
In fact, they’ve done their own fair share of censoring, in perhaps, a much sneakier and dirtier way.
The company recently admitted to “shadowbanning” accounts in a statement claiming that they do not practice such censorship.
In an investigative report, Vice found that House Republicans Rep. Devin Nunes, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows of North Carolina, all of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, were “shadowbanned,” while none of their liberal counterparts were.
Sunday, conservative firebrand and pundit Candace Owens was suspended from the platform for tweeting the same exact content as recently-hired racist (but politically left) New York Times editor Sarah Jeong, which Owens did to illustrate the differences in how Twitter treats the political left versus the right.
For now, Dorsey is sticking to his guns regarding Alex Jones and Infowars, but we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop any minute now.
Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election
They fear Tucker Carlson.
Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.
Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.
Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”
Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.
Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.
Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
