Four accounts have been confirmed to be taken down by the social media platform- @TheBaseBK, @JewishWorker, @RevAbolition, and @RevAbolitionNYC according to reporting from Andy Ngo. Their accounts and their content is now gone, replaced with a warning that reads “Account Suspended” for violating Twitter rules. The Antifa Sacramento account raged about the suspensions in their own tweet, attacking Twitter for the suspension.

    A federal lawsuit was filed against social media giant Twitter on Wednesday on behalf of a teenager, who claims that the company waited for days to remove sexually graphic videos of himself and another minor posted to its platform by sex traffickers. The lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California is done so on behalf of the minor, who is identified in the legal filing as a 16-year-old Florida resident. Withholding the child’s real name for privacy concerns, the plaintiff is referenced in the filing by the name John Doe. Doe is being represented...

    Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Thursday tweeted an image bearing a resemblance to President Trump on one of his many golf courses that bore text swearing "revenge." A tweet from Khamenei's account included the image of a blond-haired figure resembling the former president in a red shirt, with the sinister shadow of a stealth aircraft overhead.

    Antifa are bad again, you guys. That’s the message being sent by the big tech companies tonight. After years of ignoring the threat and allowing these domestic terrorists to operate freely, Twitter has started banning prominent Antifa accounts, including the account for a bookstore that operates as a training center for the group. What changed? I bet you know exactly what changed. Joe Biden is a miracle worker. All he had to do was take office, thereby setting up a situation where Antifa was embarrassing for the wrong side, and poof, they are cancelled. Of course, they’ve been running wild...

    Twitter suspended the Gateway Pundit account again on Tuesday for another week for violating the “civic integrity” rules. This is a new Orwellian category that allows Twitter to ban any conservative at will. Conservative Michelle Malkin and the popular Right Side Broadcasting Network were also suspended this week for violating the “civic integrity” rules. Of course, Twitter did not even notify GP and others of what tweet violated their new rules. One America News reported on this latest rule to ban conservative talk on Twitter.

    Twitter allowed Tasnim News, a private news agency in Iran to publish death threats against Trump. Tasnim News posted a photo of Trump golfing with a caption that read “Revenge is inevitable” Trump was permanently banned from Twitter after being blamed for a pre-planned siege of the US Capitol. Parler was also punished for the siege at the US Capitol and Big Tech worked together to deplatform Parler for supposedly hosting insurrectionists. But a news agency operating in Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, is allowed to use Twitter to issue death threats to a former US president...

    Twitter refused to take down widely shared pornographic images and videos of a teenage sex trafficking victim because an investigation “didn’t find a violation” of the company’s “policies,” a scathing lawsuit alleges. The federal suit, filed Wednesday by the victim and his mother in the Northern District of California, alleges Twitter made money off the clips, which showed a 13-year-old engaged in sex acts and are a form of child sexual abuse material, or child porn, the suit states. The teen — who is now 17 and lives in Florida — is identified only as John Doe and was between...
  • The Social Media Conundrum

    It is a reflection of the vulgarity and even the criminality now stalking our society that social media, as it is called, cannot extricate itself from this awful question of censorship. Facebook, Twitter and all the other social media platforms that are passing judgment on what Americans say today are in the pickle that they are in because the First Amendment freedoms are extended to pornographers, common criminals, political psychopaths and run-of-the-mill conservatives. Soon, if the social media tycoons have their way, their censorship will extend to ordinary liberals, butterfly collectors and, who knows, maybe even stamp collectors. You do...

    Twitter said it locked the account of China’s embassy in the United States over a tweet about Uighur women that violated company policy against dehumanization. The Chinese Embassy account, @ChineseEmbinUS, tweeted this month that Uighur women had been emancipated by government policy from being “baby making machines.” The tweet cited a study reported by state-controlled newspaper China Daily, Reuters reported. “We’ve taken action on the Tweet ... for violating our policy against dehumanization, where it states: We prohibit the dehumanization of a group of people based on their religion, caste, age, disability, serious disease, national origin, race, or ethnicity,” a...

    Last week Twitter & Facebook decided they would stifle the speech of the leader of the nation that gave them birth and allowed their owners to become billionaires many times over. We’re not of course talking about the oppressive China and Chairman Xi… No, we’re talking about the United States and President Trump. Think about that. The duly elected President of the United States is no longer able to communicate to supporters and opponents alike via the biggest microphones on the planet because of the decision of two unelected billionaires, Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg. This is a watershed moment...

In addition, the minister plans to convene a meeting with the state-sponsored Digital Freedom Committee. Government officials have begun to criticize alleged censorship of conservatives on social media platforms. Varga decried supposed “shadowban” techniques used by social media firms in...
