On Wednesday, the White House rolled out a new tool to gather stories from social media users who have been censored by the big tech giants.
President Donald J. Trump’s administration has previously pledged to “closely monitor” big tech bias against conservatives, and is now collecting stories from the public about their experiences with censorship on social media platforms.
“SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH,” reads the splash page for the new tool. “Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies.”
It continues, “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.”
The tool then collects information and allows individuals to tell their big tech censorship story.
President Trump previously vowed to “continue monitoring” tech censorship against conservatives in various posts to Facebook and Twitter.
However, President Trump is now laying down the hammer in a series of posts on social media.
Trump has vowed to continued monitoring the censorship of American citizens on social media platforms.
Trump came to the defense of African American commentators Diamond & Silk claiming that they “have been treated so horribly by Facebook.” He also acknowledged that it’s getting “worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!”
Trump also expressed his shock at Paul Joseph Watson being banned from Facebook and James Woods being banned from Twitter.
This new tool comes on the heels of Facebook’s decision to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos on Facebook and Instagram. Facebook will also take the unprecedented step of banning any user who posts videos or links to videos featuring Jones.
Parler Teases Return in New Message Posted on Homepage
“We will not let civil discourse perish!”
Deplatformed social media network Parler has pledged to return soon, according to a new message posted on their homepage.
The message included a mock parley from CEO John Matze that read: “Hello world, is this thing on?” Below that was an image of an hourglass, the title “Technical Difficulties,” and then the following statement:
“Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we started this platform. We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social media. Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and exercise their rights to both.
“We will resolve any challenge before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We will not let civil discourse perish!”
The message replaces the 404 Error that had been displayed for almost a week, meaning that Parler has new servers and is actively working to restore full site functionality.
Last week it was reported that Parler sued Amazon Web Services for pulling their hosting. They claim it breaches their contract and violates anti-trust laws. In that lawsuit Matze said that he and his family had to flee their home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of death threats.
Although Parler may soon be back online, it might take a while before users can download the Parler app. Apple CEO Tim Cook said Sunday that Parler will need to “get their moderation together” before they allow it to return to the App Store. The app had been previously removed from the Google Play Store as well.
