The Twitter platform, having been exposed as a “gatekeeper” seems to have hgone full beast mode when it comes to censoring content that it deems to be ‘sensitive,” “fake news,” or “disinformation.”
Besides the obvious algorithms that shadow ban right leaning Twitter users there appears to be much more going on.
Twitter protests its innocence a little too much
It’s censorship partners are interesting to say the least and worthy of further investigation.
(2) We all got “the email” the one that basically debunked #RussiaBots but @SenFeinstein & @AdamSchiffCA still wrote a letter (more on that later) BUT did you read the blog $TWTR shared? Because it’s important they informed us they had partners helping now. Who are they? pic.twitter.com/5f3uchGE1h

It happens to everyone? why? What's the logic. Is it to keep celebrities and politicians with a lot of followers, and the rest with little, so there is a big differential?

Glenn Greenwald pondered the injustices of our every move being recorded on line
I wonder how differently public people of prior generations would be perceived if their every utterance & action from late adolescence & early adulthood had been permanently recorded online? It's a lost blessing to be able to err in youth without having it define you forever. https://t.co/T8nPUn1Wv2
