Since that time, it has been well documented that Twitter has silenced, censored and banned conservative content.
Meanwhile, violent content and threats by radical far left extremists like Antifa and Black Lives Matter goes mostly untouched.
Two weeks ago Twitter censored a report by The New York Post on Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s questionable and likely corrupt international business dealings.
On Monday Twitter announced it will only allow seven approved outlets to announce election results. Every other outlet will be flagged.
These tech tyrants are doing their VERY BEST to destroy Freedom of Speech in America!.
What horrible people!
Twitter on Monday provided more details about its policies around tweets that declare election results, and named the seven outlets it will lean on to help it determine whether a race is officially called.
Driving the news: The list includes ABC News, AP, CNN, CBS News, Decision Desk HQ, Fox News and NBC News — all outlets that experts agree have verified, unbiased decision desks calling elections.
Our thought bubble: Some conservatives have alleged that Twitter is biased against them. In the past few weeks, data from the Stanford Cable TV Analyzer shows that Fox News has discussed Jack Dorsey and Big Tech censorship at length.
- Fox News’ Decision Desk is considered very authoritative and is highly-respected amongst media and politics insiders. By including Fox News’ decision desk in this list, Twitter is saying that it believes its decision desk is verified and legitimate.
Details: Twitter previously said that it would require either an announcement from state election officials, or a public projection from at least two authoritative, national news outlets that make independent calls about the race before letting tweets about the results go by unlabeled.
- If one of the seven outlets tweets from its main handle a result before another outlet from the group of seven confirm it, Twitter won’t label that tweet.
- If a reporter or any Twitter user tweets a result without citing one of the select outlets for its decision, that tweet may be labeled.
- The Twitter will label will say, “Official sources may not have called the race when this tweeted. Find out more.” That label will link to Twitter’s curated elections information hub.
