The Masters of the Universe will decide truth and lies for you.

Twitter is reportedly testing new technology that will label content the platform arbitrarily decides to be ‘harmfully misleading,’ according to reporting from NBC on Thursday.

The platform will affix “brightly colored labels” beneath content, providing users with rebuttals to tweets.

Imagery of the new feature has already been released, showing political rebuttals to claims made by prominent politicians such as Bernie Sanders and Kevin McCarthy.

The rebuttal content to supposed misleading tweets is going to be curated by a team of verified fact-checkers and journalists. Considering the track record of some of Twitter’s most infamous blue checks, it’s going to be hard to take them seriously as supposed objective arbiters of truth.

We’re exploring a number of ways to address misinformation and provide more context for tweets on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesperson told NBC. “Misinformation is a critical issue and we will be testing many different ways to address it.

The feature is apparently based on community feedback, and Twitter claims it will function similarly to other community-based moderation programs seen on platforms such as Wikipedia or Reddit.

Gone are the days when it was up to users of the internet and social media themselves to form their own opinion of what is truthful and what is dishonest. The San Francisco tech company is claiming a flood of supposed misinformation requires them to take action in advance of the 2020 Presidential election.

Unfortunately, it appears the community-based points system will be all too easily gamed for leftists to shut down right-leaning points of view. Twitter has little to no credibility to be enforcing politically neutral rules on their platform.

NBC’s report on the new feature states that the slanted program is set to be unveiled on Twitter around March 5th.

Spotify Snowflakes Threaten to Strike If ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ is Not Censored on Platform

Leftists hate free speech.

Published

A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.

Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.

Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.

“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.

Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.

However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.

“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.

Big League Politics has reported on the controversial episodes of Rogan’s podcast that have already been censored by Spotify:

Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast were mostly thrilled when the stand-up comedian and UFC announcer announced his move to Spotify, believing that this change would allow Rogan to have more creative freedom than he did previously.

However, this does not appear to be the case as Spotify has banned controversial and popular episodes now that the platform controls the podcast.

The Spotify channel for the Joe Rogan Experience does not host episodes featuring conspiracy icon Alex Jones and Bitcoin enthusiast David Seaman. Other right-wing figures interviewed by Rogan over the years – including Gavin McInnes, Stefan Molyneux, Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles C. Johnson, Owen Benjamin and Sargon of Akkad – have been scrubbed by Spotify as well.

Rogan fans are not happy at this early indicator that Spotify will likely be exerting massive control over the show’s content.

“This goes against his “we need to talk to everybody” shtick. Im not interested in listening to curated podcasts by his employer,” wrote Reddit user “Pluum” in disgust of the news.

“So disappointed, Alex did not even say anything too crazy on those episodes. I had Spotify premium prior to Rogan but I will probably quit my subscription just out of spite now, that will show them!” wrote user @Excavatetheinfo in another Reddit post.

“Not sure what your question is exactly but “He sold out” is kind of a general explanation of what’s going on,” user @Elgallo619 wrote in a comment.

“Spotify is partnered with Tencent Holdings, a Chinese company whose CEO is an active member of the Chinese Communist Party. Anything remotely anti-CCP is getting 86’d,” wrote user @dictatorphil about Spotify’s Chinese connections.

Spotify would be wise to not let these leftist staffers hold the company hostage due to their opposition of free of expression. If they capitulate, the Rogan podcast could be the next victim of the “go woke, go broke” phenomenon.
