Candace Owens suspended from Twitter after she criticized Governor Whitmer

Twitter suspended conservative commentator Candace Owens after she criticized in her tweet Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Owens wrote that Whitmer thinks she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country. She then urged people in Michigan to disobey her stay-at-home orders and ’go to work.’ A Twitter spokesperson claimed Owens’ tweet violated the platform’s misinformation policy.

The policy sounds more like a censorship. Anything is misinformation if you disagree with it.

Can Trump please sort out Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, before we lose the right to disagree with communists?

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Whitmer, Milano and the #metoo lynch mob will rue the day they defined themselves as being politically motivated and biased toward wiping out sexual harassment. Whatever they say now, the whiff of suspicion is upon the Democrats for only objecting to sex crime if the perpetrator is a Republican.

Suspended temporarily or for life? I can’t take twitter seriously anymore it’s always taking down and targeting people that don’t preach left nonesense. Good luck thinking differently on that platform.

Isn't there a word for severe punishment and full silencing just for criticizing the government? It's on the tip of my tongue...

that's pretty much like yelling fire in a crowded theater... The criticism part is irrelevant, it's the part where she encourages people to adopt dangerous behavior that will result in many deaths. I just think Twitter should temporarily suspend accounts rather than ban permanently in most cases.

It works out pretty well for Candice Owens though. Her message got amplified. Also, twitter is shown censoring a young black woman, not good optics twitter. Start the #twitterisracist alongside #candiceowens

What misinformation? As someone from Michigan I can say she’s pretty accurate with her statement.

In sweden theyre almost at herd immunity. If you had all the young healthy people catch the virus and stay away from vulnerable people(by keeping vulnerable people inside and quarantined), then we would have the same thing that a vaccine offers except way faster. Vaccines are literally based partly on the concept of herd immunity. Thats how the Measles vaccine is effective. It doesn’t actually keep people from catching it, it just makes it so you fight it off before spreading it very much.

Boy howdy do I love that added a füçking P A Y W A L L 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 for uploading custom avatars, good śhīt good śhīt. It’s like V and F have no idea how to actually run a legitimate business nor do they know what the majority userbase wants, there is a REASON they aren’t getting anymore donations and seeing it at 195 backers still and the same amount of money for weeks makes me cringe. Remember when this platform was a free speech open user forum? Good times, also side note FÜÇK the dumb emojis they added instead of the mosaics they had. It’s like they want only new age gen Z and millennial Bernie bros on the platform. 🙄

I love how all these freedom loving Trumpers here are angry at Twitter, hahaha!!! You’re mad a private business enforces it’s policies?! If you don’t like it, start your own twitter or move to China if you want the government to control private business. Seems like you all like having an authoritarian leader telling you what to do.

So Twitter can effectively combat disinformation and suspend the account of an opportunistic Maga Muppet in search of her 15 seconds of Fame. Yet Victor and his gaggle of Administrators are unable to combat the vile vitriol being spewed in the comment section of NEWS VOICE and utter manipulative abuse by Others when writing intentionally deceptive summaries for news stories Citing Russia today as a source (Chris). I am begging you, before you decide to be a BACKER of this Platform read through comments Under news stories Referring to any Politician who is not a supporter of Donald Trump himself And you will see that this is not the place To invest money to improve The culture of Journalism or to combat journalistic whores and the trolls that always surround them. This platform is in the hands People who thrive on Scandal and Verbal abuse. They think that the best way to promote the NewsVoice platform is through public conflict And gas-lighting a dumpster fire So that the people would start talking about it. This is not the 90s and these Howard Stern tactics are long past their Prime. Mark my words their concept of freedom of speech does not go a cent further than the their own interest in their financial bottom line.
