Twitter Secret Censorship Exposed!

Project Veritas releases footage showing Twitter employees revealing plans for secret censorship on political content they don’t like.

The point of secret censorship is to make Twitter seem like a place of grassroots opinion when it is all cyberspace AstroTurf. They want to be able to hide tweets without telling the tweeter. The tweeter will think that his views have no appeal to others on Twitter when, in reality, the tweet is hidden from everyone else. In this way, Twitter increases its power to be a Leftist echo-chamber and to hide conservative and libertarian thought.

This video release follows the first undercover Twitter exposé Project Veritas released on January 10th which showed Twitter Senior Network Security Engineer Clay Haynes saying that Twitter is “more than happy to help the Department of Justice with their little [President Donald Trump] investigation.” Twitter responded to the video with a statement shortly after that release, stating “the individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent of speak for Twitter.” The video released by Project Veritas today features eight employees, and a Project Veritas spokesman said there are more videos featuring additional employees coming.

On January 3rd 2018 at a San Francisco restaurant, Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter Software Engineer explains a strategy, called “shadow banning,” that to his knowledge, Twitter has employed:

“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”

Twitter is in the process of automating censorship and banning, says Twitter Software Engineer Steven Pierre on December 8th of 2017.
