Twitter expands content monitoring to world leaders

Twitter expands content monitoring to world leaders

In a bid to ’protect the health of the public conversation,’ Twitter is placing disclaimers on tweets from President Trump and other world leaders who violate community guidelines. The notice will not be applied retroactively. Some question if this action will move Twitter from the legally protected Platform status to that of a Publisher subject to content accountability legislation.

So Trump can't block people he wants from seeing his tweets, but Twitter can? Seems legit.

also what kind of backwards dystopian society do we live in where the president of the most powerful country on the planet doesnt have a fair communication platform? a number of the other """world leaders""" would execute you on the spot for such a notion

After Google's stuff about them telling the world what is "fair" and enforcing it, this is terrifying. Even if it's hidden and you have to press a button to reveal it, the content is stigmatised and you're being told "this is dangerous and wrong" before you even click. Bring on another 4 years so he can stop this shit show without worrying about reelection.

Left, Right, or Center, Twitter is stupid that we can agree.

Also, if trump can't block people due to it being part of the public discorse and therefore being seen as essential for democracy, the courts will destroy an attempt to censor him wholesale on that basis.

All of the silicon valley companies have been in violation of Section 230 of the communications decency act, as they've gone past the removal of illegal content not covered by the 1st amendment, and therefore have long since become publishers. It isn't legal to call for violence or threaten, yet they falsely attribute this to the right as a large problem while pretending it isn't a massive problem with leftists, or they create ever changing goal posts in hate speech guidelines to target conservatives, while leftist radical groups grow and openly encourage violence, organize illegal actions, and fundraise on their platforms. We've know for years that both Facebook and Google had meetings immediately after the 2016 election to plan against Trump in 2020 , revealed due to leaked video, and their plans for this cycle have already been leaked by project veritas. FFS, the amount of free advertising Google gave Clinton, and the leaked intentional influencing of voting in certain midwestern districts by Facebook using algorithmic advertising and recommendations, have been open information for years. These totalitarian freaks have sycophants ready to gaslight conservatives by insisting this isn't happening ofcourse, with a backup of suddenly becoming corporatist "muh private Company" leftists, and as of late open admission of social engineering intentions for 2020 and their reclassification of anything right of left as bigotry. The alt right is tiny and pathetic group, with the ADL estimating only 11,000 white supremacists, while the hidden tribes study found that 8% of the population are progressives, yet that 8% is single handedly using the alt right boogeyman to censor their way into creating an increasingly fragmented society with a silenced right and an unaccountable violent left. This will eventually lead to sectarian conflict on this trajectory, and the civic discourse must be repaired by massively enforcing Section 230 with devastating fines, antitrust, and if necessary even criminal conspiracy charges against these entities, if we're to be able to solve our issues through discourse. The right won't put up with assaults and home visits, while the media entirely ignores the motivations of leftist shooters using progressive talking points as their mandate, and blames the right for the actions of people whose ideology is both disavowed and unrelated to conservatism.

Twitter and Google are trying to enact policies fast before the government comes crashing down on them.

Silicon Valley continues to make terrible decisions that only reinforce the growing view that they no longer are open platforms but are instead publishers with an agenda. This will end poorly for them, as it will for all the cultural Marxists.

You cannot trust the results when the agenda of the service is to push communism and sell the idea that there is no such thing as truth. Socialist Media has a communist agenda.
