Twitter is a website which allows users to publish short messages (called "tweets").

Censorship

Full article: Twitter/Censorship
Ray Blanchard Twitter Censorship.jpg

In 2016 Craig Murray was "ghost banned" by Twitter, resulting in a 90% decrease in traffic to his site from that site.[1] Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, reported in 2017 that he had been "shadowbanned" because of his writings about Donald Trump.[2] Twitter was an active participant in the COVID-19 censorship, and in August 2020 it began censoring all links to BitChute videos.[3]

Disinformation and misinformation

Documents leaked in 2018 suggested that the Integrity Initiative was using "clusters" of journalists to try to promote Russophobia[4] and also to smear Jeremy Corbyn.[5]

In August 2021, they will test out a "report function" to prevent "misinformation".[6]

Staff

77th Brigade

Twitter’s ‘head of editorial’ for Middle East is officer in a UK Army propaganda unit the 77th Brigade. Gordon MacMillan has been working at Twitter for since 2012 and has been its Head of Editorial, Europe, the Middle East and Africa since July 2016.

A spokesman from Twitter told The Independent that it was an “open, neutral, and independent service” and that a review of Mr MacMillan’s service as an army reserve psychological warfare volunteer had found no violation of its policies.[7]

Nick Pacilio

Nick Pacilio, per 2021 the senior communications manager for Twitter, was Vice President Kamala Harris' previous press secretary from 2011-14, while Harris was the attorney general of California, [8], and announced the removal of Trump Tweets[9].

A fascinating fact check by Microsoft-owned MSN created the impression in its headline and article that this connection is untrue. Out of the many social media accounts talking of this, they picked a Facebook post to debunk that somewhat imprecisely claimed "Kamela Harris' press secretary is the chief of communications at Twitter. Let that sink in"[10], The MSN 'fact-check' focuses on the word "current", and states "the claim that Harris' press secretary is the senior communications manager of Twitter is FALSE, based on our research. There is no evidence that her current press secretary, Sabrina Singh, was ever employed by Twitter.[11], while the same article in an example of doublespeak correctly confirms the core of the claim, "Harris' former press secretary now works at Twitter; he became an employee there after working for Harris."

Opinions about Twitter

“The medium is the message, and the message of Twitter is: I hate you.”

PewDiePie ADL controversy“Reinstalled Twitter to talk about PewDiePie's betrayal by donating 50k to the ADL. The company working with places like Twitter to get rid of anything "Offensive" @pewdiepie

You just supported a group that even ruined even YOUR deal to Disney. Wtf?

PewDiePie literally paid $50,000 to not be called racist anymore. And in turn- he just got so many people in the future censored off of places like Twitter and YouTube.

Anytime someone gets banned for now on, I'll be sure to say

"Thanks Pewdiepie"”

Platformization“The much loved upstart that gains network effects by managing incentives across the ecosystem loses its benevolent streak as its power increases. This may take many different forms. Amazon, for example, often uses its platform’s data to determine which product lines to get into; eventually it outperforms the merchants who were doing well with those products. Twitter, likewise, has repeatedly changed policies to work against the ecosystem. A recent example saw Twitter pushing live streaming service Meerkat off the platform after acquiring its competitor, Periscope.”Sangeet Paul Choudary8 May 2017
Joy Reid“Essentially, she made public her own vaccine deliberation, which according to trusted friends is a better way to describe vaccine hesitancy, which by the way is not the same thing as refusal. By doing, Nicki also used her social media platform and her 22 million Twitter followers to cast doubt on the vaccine to a heavily Black audience”Joy Reid14 September 2021
