Twitter Bans Black Republican Political Consultant Without Explanation

Published

on

This week, Twitter banned RC Maxwell, a popular black Conservative political consultant and activist from the social media platform just two weeks after he created his account.

“I created my new account about two weeks ago,” Maxwell told Big League Politics. “I used that account @Campaign45Papi to push the pro-Trump candidates I’m working with this mid-term, which include (Kelli Ward Arizona Senate, John James Michigan Senate, Ron Bassilian California House, Aja Smith California House, and Liz Matory Maryland House, but it was suspended just as I started to garner a decent following with influential messaging.”

Maxwell currently works as a GOP political consultant out of California.

His first account @BlackHannity, which was verified, was banned last year. From that account, Maxwell was once re-retweeted by Donald Trump Jr, and other prominent Conservatives including Mike Cernovich and Paul Joseph Watson.

In August 2017, Maxwell received national media attention after he was assaulted at a Trump rally by a counter protester who punched him in the face and pepper sprayed his eyes.

Maxwell is one of many Conservatives who have been banned from the platform, including Tommy Robinson, Baked Alaska, and Conservative street artist Sabo.

 

Last week, President Donald Trump tweeted about the censorship of Conservatives on Twitter, and vowed to “look into” it, calling shadow banning a “discriminatory and illegal practice.”

This morning, Twitter also suspended black conservative Candace Owens for tweeting the same message as New York Times editor Sarah Jeong, demonstrating the company’s anti-conservative bias.

Twitter Suspending Bloomberg Bots for Coordinated Fake Engagement

The Bloomberg campaign is taking a page from the strategy of supposed Russian bots.

Published

on

Twitter began suspending more than 70 pro-Michael Bloomberg accounts from its platform on Friday, citing supposed inauthentic and coordinated behavior.

The platform was alerted to the suspicious behavior by the Los Angeles Times, and shortly after began suspending the accounts.

The reports of the Bloomberg bots are reminiscent of the claims of Russian bots waging influence campaigns in U.S elections. Both operations apparently involve scripted messaging, fake political engagement, and platform manipulation.

Evidence of identical messaging being spread by dubious pro-Bloomberg accounts was published by the Los Angeles Times in their report on the matter Friday.

A statement from Twitter on the suspensions confirmed the Bloomberg shill accounts violated the platform’s rules by “creating multiple accounts to post duplicative content” and “coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account.

The accounts avoid direct connections to the Bloomberg campaign, in an attempt to avoid being identified as coordinated shill accounts.

Bloomberg is paying a considerable cohort of “deputy field organizers” $2,500 a month to shill for the New York oligarch on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. The messaging strategy is relatively unprecedented in American politics, offering cash directly for a constant stream of political messaging on personal social media accounts.

The Bloomberg campaign claims that paid deputy field organizers are required to identify their affiliation with the campaign in a statement regarding the suspensions. As Bloomberg’s online social media strategy copies a page from the book of supposed malicious Russian bots, high-ranking U.S intelligence community personnel are claiming that the Russian bots are active once again in attempts to promote the campaigns of both Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump.
