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.
Facebook Protects Leftist Arsonists Starting Wildfires, Promotes Global Warming Propaganda
The censorship is increasing.
Tech giant Facebook is banning all chatter of potential arsonists causing wildfires that are rocking states like Oregon and California on the west coast.
Andy Stone, the veteran Democrat operative who runs communications for Facebook, made the announcement in a Twitter post:
This is consistent with our past efforts to remove content that could lead to imminent harm given the possible risk to human life as the fires rage on. (2/2)
— Andy Stone (@andymstone) September 12, 2020
At the same time, Facebook is redirecting people to globalist propaganda about climate change. They are putting this into users’ news feeds.
While Facebook may want to dismiss the notion that the wildfires on the west coast were started by arsonists, the authorities are already apprehending suspects who are believed to have started fires.
Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, has been hit with two charges for arson, 14 counts of reckless endangering, and 15 counts of criminal mischief. Law enforcement believe that Bakkela’s blaze caused “significant damage.”
“There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.
Similar to Facebook, the deep state is covering for the behavior of the leftist anarchists as well.
“FBI Portland and local law enforcement agencies have been receiving reports that extremists are responsible for setting wildfires in Oregon. With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports and found them to be untrue. Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away from local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources,” the FBI said in a statement.
Big League Politics reported last week about another far-left extremist who has been charged with setting fires:
A man with a lengthy history of left-wing political activism and a several misdemeanor convictions was arrested for allegedly setting a fire on a Washington highway as devastating wildfires burn throughout the western United States in Oregon, Washington and California.
Jeffrey Acord is a longtime Black Lives Matter activist and rioter who first was criminally charged with riot offenses during a 2014 Seattle protest, in which BLM activists reacted to the decision not to pursue criminal charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson. Accord was arrested and charged with concealed carry violations at that event.
The Pullayup, Washington Police department claims to have caught Acord in the act of setting a fire in the median of Highway 167 in the state. He’s being charged with reckless burning in the second degree, a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail.
In a shocking twist, Acord livestreamed his own arrest. He argued that he merely called police to report the fire, denying that he had anything to do with the fire’s origin, before police arrested him.
It is time for the organized Left to be treated like the associated forces of terrorism that they are and dealt with swiftly.
