To combat toxicity on the platform, social media website Twitter is reportedly developing a feature to makes users reconsider sending messages that its system detects as “mean” or offensive. Initial tests show that 34 percent of users who received the warning chose to revise their message or not send it at all.
NPR reports that Twitter is attempting to make its users more conscientious about the language they use on the platform and is encouraging positivity by implementing a new feature that will detect “mean” replies on its service before a user presses send.
When Twitter detects that a user is about to post something that could be seen as offensive, an automatic prompt will be displayed that states: “Want to review this before tweeting?” The user is then offered three choices: tweet, edit, or delete.
Twitter has locked out the Media Right News account after the America First news outlet tweeted out a headline which included a quote from Antifa activists.
The Media Right News account was locked on Tuesday, it was revealed to National File. The account was accused by Twitter of engaging in “targeted harassment,” for tweeting out a headline of a story they had covered last week. The account was hit with the lock only days after tweeting out the story, entitled “Antifa Hit List, Recordings Exposed by ABC Affiliate: ‘Let’s Kill Some Cops’,” with Twitter likely targeting the tweet due to the quote from Antifa activists.
Social media giant Twitter has continued to flex its power to censor information by silencing a renowned Harvard professor and epidemiologist who expressed a perspective on COVID-19 vaccines, which was scientifically validated, but contrary to Big Tech’s well established pro-lockdown and vaccine acceptance biases.
Dr. Martin Kulldorff is on a vaccine safety subgroup that advises the CDC, FIH and FDA. In addition to being a professor at Harvard, he also works as a biostatician and epidemiologist at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Kulldorff has been cited in more than 25,000 academic articles.
Kulldorff is one of three co-creators of the Great Barrington Declaration, which offers a scientifically validated perspective, the gearing of lockdowns and vaccines towards protecting the most vulnerable.
The Declaration uses the term “Focused Protection” to describe the perspective that: “The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk.”
Twenty-something Twitter employees with Starbucks lattes are now the authorities in law and science versus respected, long-time attorneys who have fought corruption their entire lives.
Mr. Prashant Bhushan is an Advocate-on-Record for the Supreme Court of India. He is one of few people allowed by law to plead for or against litigants before the country’s highest court. Mr. Bhushan could have made millions working as a corporate or civil lawyer. But instead he has worked as a human rights attorney helping those most in need. Mr. Bhushan’s distinguished career has led to 2.1 million Twitter followers and an engaged, international audience. Twitter did not get the memo.
The meta-analysis “Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis” was published in the peer-reviewed journal Medical Hypotheses in November. Science Direct re-published the article in January. In other words, it isn’t even a “new” study, per se. Dr. Baruch Vainshelboim of the Cardiology Division, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System/Stanford University, authored the study.
Sports journalist Jason Whitlock has been locked out of his Twitter account for daring to criticise the Marxist founder of Black Lives Matter who recently spent millions on FOUR new homes.
Whitlock slammed Twitter’s actions, emphasising that “BLM is one of Big Tech’s sacred cows,” adding “I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years.”
“I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me,” Whitlock further told the Daily Mail.
In further comments, Whitlock noted that he isn’t going to remove the tweet at the behest of Twitter.
“They want you to remove the tweet to start your 12 hour sentence. Why should I remove the tweet? They have already removed it. I sat back and said I’m going to do nothing, and see where this story goes.” Whitlock stated.
“I’m going to play Nelson Mandela in the Twitter jail,” he added.
Whitlock also urged that BLM leaders are “making millions of dollars off the backs of these dead black men who they wouldn’t spit on if they were on fire and alive.”
The Internet Accountability Project (IAP) said in an April 1 statement that, based on campaign finance data compiled by opensecrets.org, Facebook and Twitter (employees and PACs) combined “contributed more than 12 times more money to Democrats (more than $5.5 million) than Republicans (less than $435,000) in 2020.”
The group cited a leading self-proclaimed socialist in the House of Representatives as an example of the extreme bias in favor of Democrats in political giving by employees of the two Internet giants.
“As just one example, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received a combined $36,346 in 2020 compared to less than $1,950 for all Republicans on the House Oversight Committee combined. Twitter employees did not give a single dollar to Republicans on the Oversight Committee,” IAP said in its statement.
Twitter censored Harvard professor of medicine Martin Kulldorff, a member of the COVID-19 vaccine safety subgroup that advises the CDC, FIH, and FDA, because he challenged the notion that children and young people require COVID-19 vaccination.
The platform applied a warning label to Kulldorff’s tweet about the matter, and prevented users from liking or retweeting it.
“Thinking that everyone must be vaccinated is as scientifically flawed as thinking that nobody should,” said Kuldorff in his now-censored tweet. “COVID vaccines are important for older high-risk people, and their care-takers. Those with prior natural infection do not need it. Nor children.”
Kulldorff is one of the most cited experts on infectious diseases alive today, with over 25,000 academic citations. In addition to his role as a Harvard professor, he is a biostatistician and epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Leftists across Twitter, many of them journalists, scrambled to delete tweets after they falsely claimed the Boulder mass shooter, an Islamist from Syria who reportedly had ISIS sympathies, was “white.”
Earlier today, the gunman was revealed as Ahmad Al-Issa, a migrant from Syria who routinely complained about Donald Trump, “racism” and “Islamophobia” on his Facebook page, which was swiftly deleted.
Other reports also suggest that Al-Issa had ISIS sympathies and had planned to return to Syria.
However, innumerable journalists and other leftist commentators were embarrassed after prematurely claiming that the gunman was white in an effort to amplify their contrived moral panic about “white supremacy.”
“In America, if you’re white, no matter how many people you kill you’ll be taken into custody alive,” tweeted author John Pavlovitz. “We really need to ban angry white guys with guns,” he added before deleting both tweets.
BLM activist Meena Harris also deleted a tweet that screeched, “White men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country.”
