Left-Wing, Mainstream Tech Information Shops Ignore Mission Veritas Twitter Conservative Censorship Exposé

Watch Ex-Twitter Employees Brag About "Shadow Banning" Political Opinions They Don't Like -'One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control, ' a former employee says in the Project Veritas video. On January 3, 2018, he met with a Project Veritas undercover journalist (UCJ) at Stookeys Club Moderne in San Francisco. Shadow banned users will typically be removed from the public eye, so other users can not see or interact with them, however since the user is not alerted to the shadow ban, they will not understand why their posts suddenly receive no engagement.

"...He's unsafe, I don't like him and he's a bad human being and I want to get rid of him", the self-described bleeding-heart liberal Haynes says in the video about President Trump.

If Twitter is just trying to filter out bullies and trolls who add nothing to the conversation, that's one thing, but if they are also trying to censor pro-Trump or conservative content on the platform, that's a whole 'nother ball of wax.

A Project Veritas undercover investigation has revealed a senior network security engineer at Twitter suggesting that his company turns over the private communications and deleted tweets of President Donald Trump to the Department of Justice.

"The individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent or speak for Twitter", the statement said.

"We deplore the deceptive and underhanded tactics by which this footage was obtained and selectively edited to fit a predetermined narrative. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it".

The statement responded to this claim as well, claiming that "Twitter does not shadowban accounts".

Another piece of footage released shows Twitter software engineer Steven Pierre discussing how Twitter uses censorship algorithms against users. He argued that the automation would not suppress political viewpoints, only toxic speech.

With a bit of prompting for details as to what Twitter could effectively do, Haynes says, "Basically, giving them every single tweet that he's posted". Right? Somebody's just cursing at somebody, whatever, whatever. "It's going to ban a way of talking".

Twitter is also in the process of developing a system for "down ranking" what Olinda Hassan, a policy manager for Twitter's Trust and Safety team, calls "shitty people".

"Yeah. That's something we're working on". We're trying to get the shitty people to not show up. "It's something we're working on". "It's a product thing we're working on".
