I’ve been warning about the unholy alliance between liberal political ideology and social media for about a decade.
Now it’s being exposed for all to see…
Facebook recently admitted to filtering out conservative and Christian viewpoints in the “Trending Topics” and “Related Topics” sections of their web site.
Next on the hot seat is Twitter…
The entire Twitter platform was built around real time, uncensored thought … or so we thought.
Now – thanks to the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation – we know the steps Twitter is taking to censor political content they don’t like.
A former Twitter software engineer explained on camera that the technique of “shadow banning” gives Twitter ultimate control over what content is seen by users…
He explained: “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.”
Other content control methods on the horizon at Twitter:
- Automated censorship based on certain keywords or phrases
- A secret ranking system for users
Project Veritas promises more revelations to come.
The following Project Veritas video reveals the details of how shadow banning and other forms of censorship are carried out. It’s 15 minutes long, but most of the techniques are covered in the first 8 or 9 minutes. You can watch it below.
WARNING: Most – but not all – of the casual profanity used by the Twitter employees and ex-employees is bleeped out in the video.
