Twitter is dishonest, biased, and are setting the stage for their own demise.
By continuously censoring the voices of conservatives, Twitter has created a marketplace for competition that actually values honesty, integrity, and free speech. I said this several months ago, but now my prediction is coming true.
In a brief exchange with Wiki Leaks over the suspension of Milo Yiannopoulous (@Nero), Jack Dorsey (Twitter CEO) claimed they don’t censor speech, they only suspend people for breaking Twitter’s rules.
I am hereby calling this “truth challenged.” Conservatives have been suspended and shadowbanned left and right. It has been a long time since my tweets actually reached my followers with regularity. The chance that my tweets would show up on the feeds or in the notifications of my 111,000 followers was throttled back tremendously. I have received constant complaints from people that they were never seeing my tweets. Now I have been fully shadowbanned, so I can’t even tweet someone directly or hold a conversation. I see my tweets. You don’t. Not unless you try very hard, by going to my timeline and looking for them. Twitter won’t even admit they shadowban people, yet ask any of my followers and they will confirm it. They followed me for a reason and it’s not so that I would be hidden from them. The reverse is also true. There are many conservatives who I follow whose tweets are hidden from me and their other followers.
If people are only suspended for breaking rules, why won’t Twitter ever tell anyone what rule they broke? Twitter has been completely unresponsive to my numerous requests to know what rule I have broken. Why? Because they can’t think of one. They have simply censored me, because they are liberal and I am conservative and they have the sysop powers. I have no recourse. Or do I?
A brand new social media platform which is similar to Twitter has just sprang to life! They have a 2 week waiting list just to have your account activated, due to the high demand. There is one key difference that makes it stand out compared to Twitter. They don’t censor. The service is called Gab and is available here: Gab.ai.
Just compare the rules for Gab to the Rules for Twitter. Which is easier to understand? For the sake of brevity, I am including only 2 of the 18 links to the various rules Twitter has posted. Twitter doesn’t make it to the 3rd sentence before contradicting themselves on censorship. Some people call this hypocrisy. Some people call it lying. Their rules are so full of arbitrary things you aren’t allowed to do. They can interpret rule breaking from just about any tweet. For instance, our religious morals can be attacked all day long, but don’t you dare say anything negative about homosexual deviancy, or you just gave Twitter a reason to ban you.
Twitter: We believe that everyone should have the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers. In order to protect the experience and safety of people who use Twitter, there are some limitations on the type of content and behavior that we allow. All users must adhere to the policies set forth in the Twitter Rules. Failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent suspension of account(s).
I love Twitter. At least the concept. They have harmed the ease of its use with popup windows and they could use a few minor improvements such as the ability to edit typos in tweets. What I don’t love is how dishonest and biased they have become. I don’t love the fact that you can’t reach anyone in Twitter Support to save your life. They don’t care about you. Their service is free, so that’s an excuse for you not to matter. This is why Twitter is financially challenged. When they silence voices that produce millions of impressions per week or even per day, they are hurting their own bottom line for the sake of creating a liberal echo chamber. If Twitter allowed people to follow and hear from who they like then I would have no need to go to Gab. But they don’t. When they shadowbanned me, it’s not just me they are banning free speech from. Twitter banned 111,000 people from reading and responding to my tweets. What rules did those 111,000 people break, Jack Dorsey?
I wouldn’t pay half price for a single share of Twitter stock right now, but I have some money burning a hole in my pocket to invest in Gab, if I could!
Twitter has made it impossible for me to use. They have made it clear that I am not welcome. They are dishonest and can’t even be reached to make an appeal with. They know darn well I have been trying to reach them. Well, fine. It’s off to Gab then and everyone who prefers free speech to the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda is free to join me. Let the Exodus begin!
