Twitter Adds Language into New Terms of Service Confirming That They ‘Shadowban’ Users

Previously, this had been called a “conspiracy theory.”

Social media giant Twitter is explicitly adding language into their terms of service confirming that they are shadowbanning users.

Shadowbanning is defined as social media providers severely limiting the reach of a user’s posts in order to prevent their messages from being properly disseminated on a platform. Conservatives have complained about this happening on Twitter for years, but Big Brother apologists have claimed that it is a conspiracy theory. Twitter has long denied using the practice.

“We do not shadow ban,” a Twitter spokesperson said to The Guardian last year. “Our behavioral ranking doesn’t make judgments based on political views or the substance of tweets.”

However, their new terms of service that are set to go into place on Jan. 1, 2020 confirms that they are using the practice. This shows that Twitter will be actively shadowbanning users heading into the 2020 presidential election, in what some may consider a form of electoral interference.

Twitter’s amended terms of service read as follows (italics added for emphasis):

Our Services evolve constantly. As such, the Services may change from time to time, at our discretion. We may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services or any features within the Services to you or to users generally. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time. We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services, limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you.

Twitter’s admission that they are shadowbanning users may impact a high-profile lawsuit that has been filed against the Big Tech monolith. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) filed a suit against Twitter earlier this year regarding their alleged shadowbanning of his account:

California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes filed a major lawsuit seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages against Twitter and a handful of its users on Monday, accusing the social media site of “shadow-banning conservatives” to secretly hide their posts, systematically censoring opposing viewpoints, and totally “ignoring” lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.

In a complaint filed in Virginia state court on Monday, obtained by Fox News, Nunes claimed Twitter wanted to derail his work on the House Intelligence Committee, which he chaired until 2019, as he looked into alleged and apparent surveillance abuses by the government. Nunes said Twitter was guilty of “knowingly hosting and monetizing content that is clearly abusive, hateful and defamatory – providing both a voice and financial incentive to the defamers – thereby facilitating defamation on its platform.”

The lawsuit alleged defamation, conspiracy and negligence, as well as violations of the state’s prohibition against “insulting words” — effectively fighting words that tend towards “violence and breach of the peace.” The complaint sought not only damages, but also an injunction compelling Twitter to turn over the identities behind numerous accounts he said harassed and defamed him.

“Twitter is a machine,” Nunes’ personal attorney, Steven S. Biss, told Fox News. “It is a modern-day Tammany Hall. Congressman Nunes intends to hold Twitter fully accountable for its abusive behavior and misconduct.”

President Donald Trump should consider drastic measures, including strict enforcement of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, in order to bring tech giants to heel before they can unduly influence next year’s election.

Twitter Censors President Trump’s Tweet about Restoring Law and Order in the Minneapolis Streets

Big Brother wants the riots to continue.

Published

Twitter is censoring a post from President Donald Trump on their platform warning that individuals in the streets of Minneapolis, Minn. who loot property will be shot.

“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the platform claims.

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Trump’s censored tweet reads.

The post is also censored on the official Twitter page of the White House:

Meanwhile, Twitter is allowing Islamic dictators to spread anti-Semitic messages on their platform.

After days of rioting and looting in Minneapolis, the violence is spreading across the country.

In Columbus, Oh., rioters have descended upon the state Capitol:

According to the Columbus Dispatch, 300 protesters blocked the intersections and there was a heavy police presence in downtown Columbus.

The protests were originally calm, but became disorderly late on the night of March 28, according to reports. WCMH Channel 4 reporter Eric Halperin reported that protesters started smashing windows at the Statehouse downtown and some were able to break inside the building. Halperin reported that law enforcement moved in to protect the Statehouse.

Rioters threw plastic bottles and other small objects at police officers earlier in the evening. Throughout the demonstration, protesters chanted “Black lives matter” and “Say his name”, referring to Floyd. The demonstrators also chanted “I can’t breathe,” which was a reference to Eric Garner’s death in New York back in 2014.

Seven people were shot in Louisville, Ky. as rioters targeted a police car due to their anti-civilizational rage:

Seven people were shot at an anti-police protest in Louisville, Kentucky, on Thursday night, just moments after riotous protestors were seen trying to flip over a police transport vehicle.

A sizable crowd of protestors were trying to flip over what looks to be a police detention car.

Remarkably, the local news reporter covering the raucous event describes the protest as “peacefully” as protestors clearly endanger others in their vicinity, those in the vehicle, and themselves by aggressively shaking a sizable police detention vehicle. The paddy wagon could have easily crushed someone inside or outside if it were toppled on its side.

As of early Friday morning, it’s still unclear who fired the shots during the scrum, with several Louisville police officers claiming that their weapons were unfired. At least one of the individuals who was shot is reported to be in critical condition, and the crowd quickly dispersed shortly after shots were fired.

The scenes from Minneapolis look like something out of a third-world sh*thole like Somalia:

Which, of course, has made Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her daughter very happy:

President Trump is showing why he was elected as the law-and-order candidate, as he attempts to put down these riots that are causing senseless property destruction while the far-left cheers them on.
