    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...
  • Alec Baldwin tweets about noose for Trump over MLK weekend, Twitter shrugs

    Twitter is apparently very selective about its disapproval of violence, indicating that some violence is better than other violence. If the right person threatens violence against the right person, it is safe on Twitter's platform. The tweeted reaction from Baldwin's followers was mixed. Some mocked or criticized him, while others chuckled, offering additional, grimmer enhancements to his dream.Busy plotting U.S. Constitution First Amendment suppression on a mass scale internationally, Twitter executives apparently were quite pleased that a person of Baldwin's character implemented their vision so readily. The 75 million deplorables who voted for President Donald J. Trump have still yet...
  • Ex-'Jeopardy!' Champ: Ashli Babbitt's 'Nazi A**' 'Feeding the Worms' Is a 'Good Thing

    A former "Jeopardy!" champion and prominent Twitter leftist stated that the death of a pro-Trump protester and military veteran on Wednesday was "one of the few good things that happened as a result of the Capitol 'protest'" and that people should "feel less bad than you do about putting down a rabid animal." Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, was apparently shot by Capitol Police amid protesters breaking into the Capitol building, reported The New York Post. "Ashley [sic] Babbitt feeding the worms is one of the few good things that happened as a result of the...

    Back in the day, when I was managing editor at the Daily Inter Lake in Kalispell, Mont., I enjoyed the end-of-year ritual of voting in the Associated Press’s poll of the Top 10 news stories.When I started participating in the year 2000, my list would include many of the same stories that made the final AP list, although often with differences in ranking. But by the time I retired in 2018, my view of the news had sharply diverged from the AP’s consensus view. I’d become something of a gadfly by then, questioning what seemed to be an ever more...

    Freeman’s full tweet reads: Exactly how much money do I need to give the Democratic Party for them to pull their shit together? Get angry. Get mean. Get low. We care about people. Awesome. That doesn’t mean we can’t occasionally slide a knife between some asshole’s ribs. Fellow Microsoft employees, including Program Manager Alex Dupler, appeared to endorse Freeman’s tweet, asking “where do I sign up?”

    A Twitter spokeswoman has defended the company’s decision to block and restrict tweets from President Trump but not those of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei which call for genocide of the Israeli people. The reason? Because the Iranian dictator’s tweets pass as “commentary on political issues of the day” while Trump’s could “inspire harm,” Twitter claims.

    Tucker Carlson accused Twitter on Wednesday of "purg[ing]" political viewpoints one day after the social media platform "fact-checked" a tweet by President Trump opposing mail-in voting during elections. The "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host opened his show by "stating the obvious," telling his viewers that Trump tweets "an awful lot, and many wish he wouldn't." "Whether or not it’s politically wise ... Donald Trump has an absolute right as an American to express what he actually thinks, even if every other person on Earth disagreed with him," Carlson said. "When they used to tell you this was a free country ......

    Anti-Trump tweets by Yoel Roth, Twitter’s Head of Site Integrity since July 2018, are just the latest example of the extreme leftward slant and double standards held by those at the helm of Silicon Valley social media giants. The New York Post’s Jon Levine resurfaced tweets written by Roth in 2016 and 2017, not only poking fun at conservative leaders but also mocking the Americans who make up the geographic majority of the country. “I’m just saying, we fly over those states that voter for a racist tangerine for a reason,” the Twitter executive wrote the night of the 2016...

    A reporter at The Washington Post learned that size does matter after trying to pin the exorbitant price of isopropyl alcohol on President Trump and his administration. The Post’s Amber Phillips posted and then deleted a tweet on Thursday announcing that the cost of isopropyl alcohol on Amazon was shockingly $2,375. Her tweet came after Trump’s coronavirus task force briefing at the White House Thursday where a Department of Homeland Security official spoke about the use of the product against the coronavirus.

    After blasting male domination of female sports, Marjorie Taylor Greene, was apparently suspended from Twitter. Earlier this week, the congressional candidate for Georgia’s 6th district commented on Facebook and Twitter about Rachel McKinnon’s victory at the women’s Masters Track Cycling World Championships sprint. She proclaimed on Facebook, “There are two genders — Male and Female. Males DO NOT belong in women’s sports. This is not equality. It’s not fair.” Given the controversial nature of transgender issues in light of the James Younger case, many on the Right have had to take strong positions on transgenderism. Positions that do not sit...

    A Twitter user posted a sick promise just before Halloween trick-or-treating started, then followed it up with images of his plans in action. It was a “joke,” one that wasn’t funny, appropriate, or within the terms of service of Twitter. Yet 20 hours later, the Tweets still stand despite likely hundreds of reports of the threat against children. The Tweet was bad enough, including an image of a child dressed like President Trump with red “X”s over his eyes. The comments were even worse. I have no intentions of posting the Tweet here other than the screenshots above because it...

    For all their hollow declarations that they are “pro-science”, the left continually demonstrates that they only accept “science” that affirms their own radical science-defying ideology. This is never truer when applied to the increasingly fascistic and dominant “gender ideology.” If you are a college professor and would like to lose your job, your tenure, your credibility, and even your access to social media, go ahead and present your clinical findings that contradict social justice warrior talking points. Ray Blanchard, the groundbreaking psychologist who helped craft the diagnostic and treatment procedures for clinicians dealing with transgenderism, was blocked on Twitter this...

    Brian Sims is having his 15 minutes of fame – or notoriety, depending on your point of view. A Pennsylvania state representative, Mr. Sims, a Democrat, distinguished himself on June 19, 2018 by “welcoming” Vice President Mike Pence to Philadelphia with a tweet featuring a photo of himself, grinning, with middle finger extended. “Let me be the first to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love and to my District!,” he wrote. “We’re a City of soaring diversity. We believe in the power of all people: Black, Brown, Queer, Trans, Atheist, & Immigrant. So...get bent, then get out!”...

    Facebook and Instagram will finally ban white nationalism and white separatism on their networks in a move that will be implemented next week. The decision, first reported by Motherboard but announced by Facebook on its website, comes after the social media giant spent years splitting hairs about the difference between white nationalism and white supremacy. And there’s still the question of how well Facebook can police white nationalist content among its 2 billion users. “Our policies have long prohibited hateful treatment of people based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity or religion – and that has always included white supremacy,”...

    Twitter has suspended an account that helped a widely publicized encounter between Catholic high school school students and a Native American man go viral. CNN Business reported on Monday that Twitter took the step after receiving questions from the news network about the account. The account, @2020fight, posted a minute-long video of the interaction on Friday night with the caption, "this MAGA loser gleefully bothering a Native American protester at the Indigenous Peoples March." According to a cached version of the video seen by CNN, the post garnered at least 2.5 million views and at least 14,400 retweets. The network...

    A group of civil rights organizations is pushing technology companies to create policies to more effectively address hate speech and extremist groups. The six organizations, joined by 40 other organizations who echoed the call, wrote in a report that they want the platforms to take more firm stances against “racism, sexism, xenophobia, religious bigotry, homophobia and transphobia,” and enforce policies against hate speech and extremist groups more strictly. The groups, which include the Center for American Progress, Color Of Change, Free Press, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the National Hispanic Media Coalition and the Southern Poverty Law...

    Twitter allowed the hashtag #MAGABomber to trend on Wednesday following the discovery of explosive devices sent to former CIA director John Brennan, former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among others. As of the writing of this story, #MAGABomber was the second most popular trending topic on the social media platform, prompting some to call on Twitter and its CEO Jack Dorsey to remove the hashtag, given no suspects have been named in the incidents. Former special forces operator and frequent Fox News guest Jim Hanson tweeted at Dorsey, “You have shut down plenty of trending...

    Twitter said Wednesday that it will not suspend Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan over a tweet comparing Jews to termites, the company confirmed to The Hill. Farrakhan, who has been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks for years, posted a clip to Twitter of a speech he gave captioned, "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite." The tweet prompted backlash on the platform, with figures such as Chelsea Clinton blasting it as anti-Semitic. "The responsive laughter makes my skin crawl. For everyone who rightly condemned President Trump’s rhetoric when he spoke about immigrants 'infesting our country,' this rhetoric should be equally...
