Twitter has written “shadow banning” aka, censorship, into their new terms. The platform will now intentionally “limit the visibility” of some users. Expect those who dissent from the official narrative to be the ones censored.
Critics have accused Twitter of censorship for quite some time now. But this time, it’s official. The company has admitted they will attempt to silence those critical of the ruling class. According to RT, the news terms will be taking effect in January of 2020. While the new terms don’t look like much to write home about, some tweaks to the language could have larger repercussions for users, limiting their reach behind the scenes without their knowledge.
Last year, when I spoke to Twitter reps, they lied and gaslight us about their targeted manipulation of people’s tweets. Now it’s in their new TOS. https://t.co/dti7FSd1v6 nu, @RubinReport, we’re waiting for an alternative pic.twitter.com/W2LBYma3lU

“We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services, limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you,” the new terms state.
The social media giant is telling users that it reserves the right shadow ban or “throttle” or censor certain accounts. And it is not clear on what basis will it make those decisions, although we guess (based on their past which is rife with censorship) that accounts that aren’t parroting the government’s official narrative will be on the list.
CENSORSHIP INCREASES: Twitter Suspend More Conservatives
While Twitter has previously insisted point-blank “we do not shadow ban,” in the pre-2020 terms the company split hairs between shadow banning and “ranking” posts to determine their prominence on the site, and acknowledged deliberately down-ranking “bad-faith actors” to limit their visibility.
In January 2018, conservative media watchdog group Project Veritas published footage showing Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter software engineer, discussing shadow banning as a “strategy” the company was at least considering, if not already using. “One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned because they keep posting and no one sees their content,” Vadrevu said. “So they just think that no one is engaging with their content when in reality, no one is seeing it.”
The new terms will make shadow bans an official policy, all but guaranteeing continued cries of bias and censorship from the platform’s many critics will be silenced.
Then, the dangerous, animal, cartoon predator could have settled the argument, once and for all, while she innocently crossed her fingers.
Russian defectors said their downfall was a sort-of brain-drain.
Once they had stolen away too many ideas and influencers, or they voluntarily ‘went Gault’, there was no more motivation, at large.
Would Twitter still be interesting.
Also, why are we still nagging people, who don’t believe in our moral authority to evangelize them, on the safari, which is people-watching.
“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control.”
I am in favor of shunning, too.
This soda pop stand, here, has been sending me notices, for weeks, asking me to debug it.
Bloomberg is a billionaire. He says he won’t use lobbyist money to run his campaign. He says he’ll use his money. Wrong. He will loan 1 billion dollars to his campaign fund. The Federal Government will give him matching funds, just like they do with the other candidates. He will then pay off his loan to himself with the taxpayer dollars. He won’t spend a penny of his own money. But he will spend 1 billion taxpayers dollars. What a country.

Twitter is a company that has every right to deny users from using their free service. Because every major social media platform is controlled by progressives, then maybe it is time for the conservative constitutionalists to create their own social media platform. Several of them.
