Tech giant confuses its own opinions with fact.
Not content with influencing an election, supports extreme left-wing views and suppressing Covid-19 information, Twitter have announced a new policy where users will be issued with a warning if they ‘like’ a tweet that Twitter don't. The tech overlords labelling anything they don't agree with as ‘misinformation’.
The platform unveiled the change Monday, unbelievably citing the election and COVID-19 as 'justification'. “Giving context on why a labelled Tweet is misleading under our election, COVID-19, and synthetic and manipulated media rules is vital,” the post read. Twitter stated that its “prompts” have “helped decrease Quote Tweets of misleading information by 29%.” meaning they've nobbled 29% more tweets they don't agree with than they had previously.
The platform further announced that it is “expanding them to show when you tap to like a labeled Tweet.”
Twitter gave an example of a ‘misleading’ statement that would lead to a warning if anyone liked it. “Mail in votes will be harder to count and track, leading to unreliable results” the example read. The example was highlighted with the ‘prompt’ “This is disputed,” and “Help keep Twitter a place for reliable info. Find out more before sharing.”
The company which has actively censored President Trump’s posts while blocking news regarding Joe Biden’s potentially disqualifying dodgy business dealings, also recently announced that it will reset the @POTUS account on inauguration day, deleting Trump’s tweets.
Twitter also announced that its representatives will be meeting with members of Biden’s ‘transition team’ in the coming weeks to discuss the hand over of the @POTUS handle.
In the face of such rampant politicised censorship, which has been exposed by Senator Ted Cruz, among others, grilling Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, it is no surprise that rival platform Parler has gained massive numbers of users, after promising to adhere to freedom of speech rights.
