Report: Twitter Deletes 10,000 Accounts for ‘Discouraging Voting’ At Behest of Democrats

Published

on

According to a Friday report, Twitter took it upon itself to jump into the middle of the midterm election process, banning 10,000 accounts that “discouraged people from voting.”

“We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesman told Reuters, adding that the removals occurred in late September and early October.

According to the report, the accounts were “automated,” though Twitter did not clarify exactly which accounts were deleted. The effort was apparently at the behest of the Democratic party, which claimed that the accounts “wrongly appeared to be from Democrats.”

“Twitter removed more than 10,000 accounts, according to three sources familiar with the Democrats’ effort,” the report said. “The number is modest, considering that Twitter has previously deleted millions of accounts it determined were responsible for spreading misinformation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

The leftists in Silicon Valley are now actively deciding what information is accurate, and allowing or disallowing that information to be shared based on their subjective reasoning. That is a recipe for disaster.

According to the report some of the Tweets “discouraged Democratic men from voting, saying that would drown out the voice of women, according to two of the sources familiar with the flagging operation.”

Such messages are not necessarily spam, considering the Democratic party has gone bonkers with identity politics. Just yesterday, a prominent Democrat called for straight, white males to be banned from voting completely. Based on their track record, it is completely within the realm of possibility that far-left crazies would seriously discourage certain demographics from voting.

Meanwhile, Twitter has suspended the accounts of prominent journalists who have exposed the misdeeds of Democrats, like Laura Loomer.

Loomer confronted Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) several times about documented accusations of domestic violence, causing him to drop in the polls. Her account was suspended through election day without explanation.

Big League Politics reported:

Laura Loomer has been suspended from Twitter for the last week of the 2018 midterm election.

“No. None at all,” Loomer said when asked if she was given a reason for the banishment. “This is absurd.”

Loomer’s suspension appears to last until November 7.

This is called “Censorship Trolling.”

The good news for those interested in fair elections is that several of the Silicon Valley giants, including Twitter, were hit with a Federal Election Commission complaint for election interference on Friday.

Until the feds reign in the power of the social media titans, stories like these will recur.

Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs

Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most

America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.

Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.

Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.

President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.

Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.

The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”

The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.

“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.

In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.

Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.

Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
