    March 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes is taking Twitter to court for the social media giant’s alleged discrimination against himself and other prominent conservatives through shadow-banning and other means. Last summer, Nunes was one of several Republican lawmakers and GOP leaders whose Twitter accounts had disappeared from the drop-down menu that normally populates when typing in a name, without comparable figures such as Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez or any of the 78-member Progressive Caucus being affected. Twitter soon corrected the problem and denied it engaged in shadow-banning (the practice of restricting a user’s visibility...
  • Once The QE Cloak Was Removed Silicon Valley Seems To Have A Lot Of Naked Emperors Parading Around

    If there has been one meme that defines much of 2018 I would have to say it’s been the emergence of what I call the “Celebrity CEO.” And nowhere has this phenom been taken to 11 than what we’ve experienced from Silicon Valley. However, what takes it up another notch is just how overarching and politically driven this group decided they were to become via anointing themselves by decree, using their platforms and products as a cudgel against any and all that did not adhere to their viewpoints of right and wrong. Regardless if it would pass the standards of...

    Free speech social media platform has rebranded as and aims to become a tech hub for “liberty-minded tech startups” that wish to avoid connections to leftist Silicon Valley groups., the free-speech themed social media platform founded by CEO Andrew Torba, has long aimed to act as an alternative to sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Now Gab is rebranding as and aims to provide an infrastructure for tech developers that wish to grow their own platforms and products without being forced to go through leftist companies based in Silicon Valley. Andrew Torba spoke to Breitbart News...

    FULL TITLE: BREAKING: INFOWARS Founder ALEX JONES Crashes Senate Hearing on Online Censorship of Conservatives (VIDEO) On Wednesday Alex Jones crashed the Senate Intelligence hearing on foreign influence on US social media platforms. The US House is holding a hearing later today on tech giant censorship of conservative voices. In August Facebook, Apple, Google-YouTube and Spotify colluded to eliminate Alex Jones and Infowars from their platforms. Alex Jones is with Jack Posobiec outside the Senate hearing. Tech giants Google and Twitter will testify today before Congress. This morning the US Senate is holding a hearing. Alex Jones is going off...

    The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration. A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time. On Monday, the Gateway Pundit blog noted the memo’s...

    Facebook on Friday issued an apology to PragerU for “mistakenly” removing several videos and limiting the reach of others. PragerU Aug 17, 2018 BREAKING: We're being heavily censored on @Facebook. Our last 9 posts are reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two videos were deleted last night for “hate speech” including our recent video with @conservmillen. Facebook We mistakenly removed these videos and have restored them because they don't break our standards. This will reverse any reduction in content distribution you’ve experienced. We’re very sorry and are continuing to look into what happened with your Page. Aug...

    Now that others are venturing timidly from their foxholes, I can take to print without becoming the sole target of a vengeful, monopolistic technocracy. It appears that Google, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter have all gone to war with President Trump, and are punishing anyone who dares to speak up for him. Don’t take my word for it. See for yourself. It may cost you $5 and you may find your Google Ads account temporarily suspended, but you will enjoy the innocent conversations with kindly Google employees in Mumbai as they try to explain policies unrelated to what is really going...
  • Shadow Ban: PragerU Reveals Immediate 99.9999% Drop in Facebook Reach

    08/17/2018 2:11:12 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 100 replies ^ | 17 Aug 2018 | Lucas Nolan
    Conservative non-profit group PragerU appears to be facing Facebook censorship, as many recent posts from group are suffering from a 99.9999 percent drop in engagement based on Facebook’s own dashboard. The Social Media Masters of the Universe also pulled down two PragerU videos, which it labeled “hate speech.” Echoing the apparent page limitation of conservative commentating duo Diamond and Silk, the conservative non-profit group PragerU — which produces educational videos on conservative issues — appears to have found its Facebook page’s reach drastically limited. The group’s Facebook page boasts three million followers, but its most recent posts have been seen...
  • Small Conservative Outlets Are Being Shadowbanned En Masse

    08/09/2018 12:51:56 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 28 replies
    The Revolutionary Act is a growing conservative news and commentary site, but it is still quite small compared to the big conservative players. That doesn’t mean, however, that the giant social media censors do not Hoover it up for squashing. The suppressive algorithms clearly cover the conservative spectrum and hit rightist content providers regardless of size, strangling conservative content from cradle to grave. InfoWars being eradicated from multiple platforms within hours of each other was a draconian and possibly monopolistic measure against a site considered to be on the right but was really its own conspiratorial wing of the political...
  • Was Pastor James MacDonald's Podcast Shadow Banned by iTunes Over Prayer Request for Trump?

    Christian Post ^ | 08/03/2018 | Michael Gryboski
    Apple iTunes is being accused by some of having "shadow banned" the podcast of Illinois Pastor James MacDonald after he called on listeners to pray for President Donald Trump. A "shadow ban" involves blocking a website account in a way where the account's content is not readily available to others on a website. The user is unaware that their content is blocked. CBN reported that although MacDonald's popular "Walk in the Word" podcast remains available for listening on iTunes, his podcast inexplicably plummeted down the podcast charts after the pastor posted a message last month calling on listeners to pray...

    Cracking down on hate, abuse and online trolls is also hurting Twitter’s standing with investors. The company’s stock plunged Friday after it reported a decline in its monthly users and warned that the number could fall further in the coming months. The 20.5 percent plunge comes one day after Facebook lost 19 percent of its value in a single day. Twitter says it’s putting the long-term stability of its platform above user growth. That leaves investors seemingly unable to value what the biggest companies in the sector, which rely on their potential user reach, are worth. Twitter had 335 million...

    Twitter tonight took the UNPRECEDENTED move of silencing the leading critic of Hillary Clinton, Wikileaks. Twitter took the action to mute their tweets tonight, so that just a fraction of their followers will see them, and they no longer show up in searches. Check for yourself: search Twitter for tweets by @wikileaks Spread the word.

    We've all heard rumors of this, but I wanted you to know that this is actually happening, and it's being done in order to affect the social media conversation about the debate tonight. I'm an active but careful Twitter poster. Since suffering a "shadow ban" a couple of weeks ago, I have stopped using all Trump related hashtags. That means I don't include things like #NeverHillary, #VoteTrump, and #Maga in my tweets. I don't post too much, or use too many "@" tags for famous people. I just post about Hillary and her corruption, as well as ardent support...
