Twitter Reinstitutes Draconian Censorship Heading Into Midterm Elections
The social media giant Twitter is reinstituting draconian censorship policies in order to control the flow of information heading into the 2022 midterm elections.
“The mission of our civic integrity work is to protect the conversation on Twitter during elections or other civic processes,” Twitter stated.
Twitter is introducing the Orwellian notion of “prebunks,” which will guide people on their home page to regime-approved information. They will also hit tweets they deem to be misleading with these “prebunks” as well.
They admit that they are bringing these policies back as the means of “protecting the integrity of the election conversation.” They will be examining “external data and internal country-based metrics” to “assess the potential for online or offline harm” and “the potential for false or misleading information about civic processes and human rights concerns.”
Critics of Twitter, including the alt social media platform GETTR, are seizing upon this news to expose the restrictive nature of their competition.
“These disturbing new policies deliver a huge blow to democracy and free speech right, not just in America, but around the world. We must not become numb to this kind of ideologically-motivated censorship which is a naked attempt from Twitter’s liberal executives to control the outcome of elections and the democratic process,” GETTR CEO Jason Miller said.
“Now more than ever, we need platforms like GETTR which have a firm commitment to protecting the public’s right to information online, no matter their political beliefs,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on Twitter censoring accurate information detrimental to the Democrats in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election:
“A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.
“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.
