Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

"Twitter has announced sweeping measures aimed at cracking down on the QAnon conspiracy theory, including banning thousands of accounts.

"The social media giant said it would also stop recommending content linked to QAnon and block URLs associated with it from being shared on the platform.

"QAnon is a sprawling conspiracy theory whose followers support US President Donald Trump.

"Twitter said it hoped the action would help to prevent "offline harm"."

and then

Lets see how quickly they move to ban those who support Antifa and BLM.  Spoiler alert:  don't hold your breath.  And before the usual suspects hyperventilate, I've never clicked on the Q nonsense a single time.  These days I wait to see if ANYONE is ever going to be held accountable for the crimes that have been uncovered in FBI/CIA et cetera.  If they don't indict any of them then America is headed to severe conflict, sooner rather than later.  Too much info has been released for the tens of millions of irate citizens to be ignored and the two-step shuffle to happen one more time.  One way or another, there WILL be a reckoning.

I remember a few weeks ago they were pushing the debunked Wayfair conspiracy. However many of the videos from them have been re-uploaded.

It's a game of whack-a-mole, but I doubt if any of the social media giants will put enough resources into whacking them all permanently.

No it isn't. They have every right to ban content from their own platform.

Not at the expense of free speach and dare i say it fairness, the world is in turmoil. You would think people would want to work together and oust the evil of the world instead of trying to rewrite an history that was "ok" just a few months ago.

Those "rights" came via the Communications Decency Act.  Congress giveth, Congress taketh away.  230 reform is need NOW.  Those entities who are becoming filthy rich by just posting content have stepped out and begun deciding who gets to speak and increasingly it's one political view that is finding itself demonetized or banned.  They may have the right as a "private" company but they damned well need to be held to the same standards as any other publisher who makes those decisions.  They don't get to have it both ways.

Twitter is protected under the same Supreme Court rulings that also protect Facebook, so quit moaning and find something else to get excited about. The whining and moaning is getting old.
