Twitter manipulation?

It seems to me that Twitter has not been allowing virus related hashtags to trend. UNLESS they are anti-Trump hashtags, in which case they ARE allowed to trend.

Not to say that Trump doesn’t deserve very harsh criticism for the administration’s inept response to the virus, but I don’t like thought manipulation by internet monopolies.

A commenter pointed out recently that when Trump did a smart thing to prevent spread of the virus, banning travel from China, he was criticized for that too. Yes, it sucks that the media is always anti-Trump even when he does something right.

  1. So Trump shuts down travel way back at the beginning. No one notices accept fakestream media. And month(s) later still no big outbreak in the US. Hmmm.

  4. From your tweet: “So long as their 401k is good,” she said, they’ll ignore the rest.”

    This gals parents are sidestepping the truth that they, like most Americans, disbelieve the evil spirits/social forces stories that the Democrats tell. According to a Brookings study showing that an incredibly small percent of people attribute low black achievement in academics to racism we can infer that Americans generally have their BS meter on at full power when it comes to social justice metaphysics.

    People regret that equality is unachievable but they they believe something other than the Left’s most convenient targets, some external political enemy, are to blame.

  5. Twitter is absolutely evil. They have massively stepped up the campaign of banning right-wing users and/or building a database of their phone numbers. It works like that: they block your account under the pretext of your activities being “unusual” (never anything less vague than that). Then they require you to prove “that you are human”. The ONLY way to do this is to receive a text to the phone number you provide. Screw them – under no condition I am user Twitter not through VPN or giving them a phone number that can be used to find my real life info.

    Of all the big tech, Twitter engages in censorship the most. More even than Google. Totally believe that they manipulate trends. It will get worse as we get closer to elections.
