    YAVIN BASE, OUTER RIM—Rebel scum across the galaxy are up in arms after Twitter suspended the account of astromech droid R2-D2 for apparently sharing stolen Imperial plans vital to the survival of the Rebellion. According to sources close to the droid, he has been unable to post anything to Twitter since his suspension last week. "Here at Twitter, we take the safety and security of the galaxy very seriously," said Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a response. "Our sources tell us these are very important schematics to an Imperial superweapon stolen by wanted criminal Jyn Erso and a ragtag band...
  • Twitter, Facebook censored Trump at least 65 times, leave Biden untouched

    (NewsBusters) — Twitter and Facebook have censored the president’s social media accounts and the accounts belonging to his re-election campaign at least 65 times. In contrast, the companies have not censored former Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his campaign accounts at all. Twitter composes the bulk of the problem, with 98 percent of all the instances of censorship. Thus, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Twitter has made the decision to censor major headlines about the Biden family, particularly when it came to the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukraine. The...

    (NewsBusters) — Thou shalt not mock the left, certainly not with an election looming. In Saturday’s New York Times, tech reporter Kevin Roose talked with Times reporter Emma Goldberg about her previous humor-impaired article regarding The Babylon Bee’s brand of satire, which is controversial among the left and the media because unlike The Onion it mocks political figures and ideas other than Donald Trump and the GOP. Roose’s piece appeared under the hostile but representative headline “How The Babylon Bee, a Right-Wing Satire Site, Capitalizes on Confusion.” The paper blurbed Roose’s story on Saturday’s front page under the heading “Distortions.”...

    The hubris of the technology companies at this point is staggering, and it seems to have blinded them to some pretty obvious problems with what they are doing. (LifeSiteNews) – Some weird things have been happening online recently. If you search for certain words or phrases on Google, you are directed not to the website or news story about the thing you are searching for, but a series of sources attacking or debunking it. When you try to post about certain things on Twitter or Facebook, your followers see your words accompanied by a link to an article attacking what,...
  • How Big Tech is Working on Stealing the Presidential Election From Trump

    10/19/2020 6:15:52 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | October 19, 2020 | Rachel Alexander
    Allum Bokhari, an investigative tech writer for Breitbart, published a book last month explaining how Big Tech intends to defeat Trump. If anyone should know, it’s him, having written about Big Tech’s attacks on conservatives for years. And it’s important to read this book, because the censorship is now so vast it is difficult to learn about it by merely digging up article after article. In #Deleted: Big Tech’s Battle to Erase the Trump Movement and Steal the Election, Bokhari goes over how it’s being stealthily done on many fronts, usually under the guise of something else. Big Tech uses certain...

    Conservative activist Charlie Kirk blasted Twitter after the social media giant blocked the Turning Point USA founder for “violating rules against posting misleading information about voting.” “I’m kind of in a hostage situation with Twitter,” Kirk said Sunday on Fox News’ “The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton.” “I do not have access to my Twitter account because I tweeted a widely reported story.” The social media platform – which has been lambasted by conservative lawmakers and pundits over the last week for blocking users from sharing a New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s alleged emails – blocked Kirk from...

    The German Marshall Fund (GMF), an influential globalist think tank founded by the state of Germany to promote deeper ties between America and Europe — and funded in part by the U.S. government — has branded Breitbart News, Fox News, the Blaze, and the Federalist as “deceptive” news outlets, urging social media platforms to suppress their engagement. The GMF, which claims to be a “non-partisan” organization, relies on the opinions of NewsGuard, an unaccountable Microsoft-linked establishment project that purports to “rate” the validity of news sites. The report divides so-called “deceptive” news outlets into two tiers. “Manipulators,” that the GMF...

    As paying customers of Facebook, it is appalling our account was locked without reason and their only answer for us is it might take weeks to hear back from them. I work for a pro-life marketing agency called Choose Life Marketing. We provide marketing services to pro-life pregnancy centers all over the country, helping them reach abortion-minded women in their communities with life-affirming services and help. On October 15, we logged into our Facebook Business Manager account like any other day to check on the ads we run for these pregnancy centers. At the top of the screen was a...

    Are Jack Dorsey, who has lied to Congress, and Mark Zuckerberg, who has no love for freedom, democracy, and the Constitution, Russian assets? President Donald Trump was accused of being a Russian asset because Moscow’s operatives tried to influence American opinion by buying a few thousand dollars of Facebook ads while fake Twitter accounts planted dubious stories. So how are Twitter and Facebook not meddling in our elections by suppressing a major American newspaper’s URL for a story deemed harmful to one candidate in a presidential election? If there ever was any doubt that the social media tech giants Twitter...

    On Friday’s edition of “The McLaughlin Group,” The Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift stated that social media companies are “reacting responsibly” to the New York Post‘s reporting on Hunter Biden and that “You don’t publish and peddle a lie so that it gains traction.” Clift said, “It’s a conspiracy theory. It’s Russian disinformation. It’s being peddled through Rudy Giuliani, who has zero credibility on any of this. No media outlet has been able to confirm any of the so-called details, including the New York Post, which hasn’t seen the computer. And the social media companies are reacting responsibly. You don’t publish...

    Socialist regimes typically don’t excel at good government or economic stewardship, but they do tend to be experts at one thing—propaganda. Under regimes like the Soviet Union and countless other socialist monstrosities, citizens may not have been able to buy bread without waiting an entire day in line, but they could easily access a galaxy of reports via virtually any medium—print, TV, radio, billboards, schoolbooks, etc.—informing them of the glories of socialism in general and their own leaders in particular. Americans do not have to wait in line to buy bread yet, but make no mistake: In America today, the...

    There's a disgusting, absolutely 100% false story about Joe Biden's son going around. It's so bad that it has been condemned by the wise, moral, upstanding people who run Twitter and Facebook. Even mentioning the story can get you banned from these platforms. That's how bad and false the story is. It claims that Biden's son did a lot of really bad stuff, allegedly, stuff that he CERTAINLY did not do. It says that there was clear alleged corruption in the Obama-Biden administration, with Biden allegedly pulling strings for his allegedly wayward son. The story also had a bunch of...

    U.S.—Big tech companies like Facebook and Twitter have successfully prevented other parties from interfering in the United States' upcoming presidential election by interfering in the election themselves. From nagging people to vote and curating their own election information as the only source of legitimate voting information for their users to squashing stories that would hurt the candidates they like and locking out conservatives from their social media accounts, big tech companies are working hard to ensure that they're the only ones who are allowed to influence the election results this year. "In order to make sure no one interferes in...

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA—In a last-ditch effort to stop negative stories about Joe Biden and his family from spreading, Twitter shut down its entire social network Thursday. After seeing account after account tweet out one particularly bad story, CEO Jack Dorsey realized he had to take action. Dorsey smashed a glass box in his office reading "Break In Case Of Bad Publicity For Democrats." Inside the case was a sledgehammer for smashing Twitter's servers. "Red alert -- shut the servers down! Shut them all down!"

    In a spectacular, and humiliating, reversal for Twitter which two days ago sparked an unprecedented scandal with its blatant pro-Democrat censorship and dissemination ban of the "bombshell" NY Post article confirming Joe Biden's connections to both Ukraine and China, Twitter said it would no longer block the NY Post story about Hunter Biden. After the NYT first reported late on Friday that Twitter "began letting users share links to an unsubstantiated New York Post article about Hunter Biden that it had previously blocked from its service", a spokesperson for the online publisher which wishes to retain its Section 230 protections...

    The New York Post's breaking news of emails purporting to show Hunter Biden scheming to make money off the family name has created a social media firestorm. Twitter began blocking users from sharing it almost instantly. Facebook didn't block the story outright, but they did announce almost immediately that they were "reducing its distribution on our platform." Even for the most sober observer, it sure seems like the social media platforms are interfering with the free flow of information relevant to our election. This is all the more so when you consider that stories critical of President Donald Trump, such...

    As the American right continues to sort through its identity crisis, four years after the earth-shattering election of a heterodox Republican Party presidential standard-bearer, battle lines are hardening on the issue of Big Tech's hectoring censorship and its monopolistic corporate misbehavior. The increasing brazenness with which the various Big Tech behemoths distort their search algorithms to hide conservative viewpoints, undermine conservatives through "shadow banning" and weaponize the sanctimonious and self-serving "fact-checking" cottage industry to suppress conservative voices has long been clear to those of us who, to use the parlance of the day, are "very online."

The problem: It seems that going to certain Twitter accounts that they do not load or they display with a message, "Try Again". I have responded to several posts to simply hit refresh multiple times to see the content.The question: Is this intentional? Is Twitter doing this to dissuade people from reading certain Twitter feeds?The experiment: I went to multiple Twitter pages (on the web, not a phone app). I do not have a Twitter account - I...
