Twitter hides Trump tweet for 'glorifying violence'

"This is the bravest and riskiest thing I've ever seen Twitter - or any social media giant - do," said Carl Miller, from the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at UK-based think-tank Demos.

"This pours rocket fuel over the online-harm-versus-free-speech debate. Online content policy doesn't get more incendiary than this."

The same post remains unaltered on Facebook, without any warning attached.

Please don't bother to mention the massive interference, 'shadow-blocking' etc of progressive communicators by Twitter and similar silencing, demonetization by youtube, FB etc, lest people learn the truth about the 'brave social media'.

It is okay since it is not being done by a government. Billionaire owned platforms run by MBA's whose only purpose is to manipulate our society into a coma of mass over consumption of useless items.

This is so great. The billionaires who hate Trump will start censoring him on the media platforms they own and the US "left" will cheer. Then at some point they will wake up to the reality that it is not only Trump who is subject to billionaire control over their freedom of expression.

Techn0logical Dictatorship: FB to Decide Who To Trust

https://youtu.be/CGdI6T1PLQk

"Facebook is starting to tag users' pages to clearly highlight who it considers to be 'state-controlled media'...But there's a lot of 'selectivity' as to who gets flagged."

 

kropotkin1951

Its all about freedom and democracy. State controlled media sites are inherently evil and only billionaire owned media sites are to be trusted and thus put on the approved view list. Even now if you try to search something that is specific to Canada one gets page after page of irrelevant American sites primarily trying to sell something useless. Now that is the kind of freedom that is worth fighting for.

Twitter is a global company. Strange how they were not able to find a single site run by any of the 5Eyes agencies or their proxies. I have a hunch it would not take a lot of looking to find multiple sites run by, or at least funded by, the NED in numerous countries on the planet.
