Now that Musk owns Twitter

Many liberals had denied the social media giant was engaging in censorship by using the more pleasant term “content modification.” Now documents show Twitter executives burying “disfavored” views as “visibility filtering” and “amplification” limits.

Calling executives the “head of legal, policy, and trust” (Vijaya Gadde) and the “global head of trust & safety” (Yoel Roth) doesn’t alter their status as some of the greatest censors in history.

Yet the license for this massive system clearly came from Twitter’s very top. Shadow banning and “visibility filtering” are consistent with the policies of ex-CEO Parag Agrawal, who pledged the company would “focus less on thinking about free speech” because “speech is easy on the internet. Most people can speak. Where our role is particularly emphasized is who can be heard.”

Twitter and Democrats lied about censorship (nypost.com)
What liberals were denying Twitter was censoring it's content? It's a private company that can do what they want and have any content they want or ban any content they don't want. I'm guessing you support bakeries not baking cakes for homos getting married.

They were also denying that shadow banning was occurring. Well, it was.

So you're dodging the question. Again. Who? Why would they deny this when it is completely legit and healthy to do? I get why you would want Nazi's posting propaganda, but those wanting a healthy democracy don't want your shite posted.

They deny it because they purport to be in favor of free speech but in reality they were surreptitiously suppressing it. Ironically, their stance is much closer to the Nazi's than advocates for less censorship.

Who is they? So you're saying Twitter shouldn't have the right to control what content is on their own forum? You're saying SA shouldn't either? There seems to be a lot of free speech on Twitter. This gets back to yelling fire in the cinema and taste. Twitter allows too much free speech in my opinion and in the end it's their choice. Not yours or mine.

Musk is pushing more and more fascist shit like this out the door.


Not particularly fascist, but it is really stupid.
Who the hell is "pursuing" li'l Kyle? Other than making fun of him, I think he's pretty much ignored. His 15 minutes of fame was up a long time ago, although the people he killed are still dead.

It's not just him, it's what he represents. Trying to portray Kyle as something he is obviously not just pisses me off. This is just bullshit promoted by Elmo. He's getting called on it.
