Authoritarian Twittership

Today Twitter updated its policy

Today, we will start enforcing updates to the Twitter Rules announced last month to reduce hateful and abusive content on Twitter.

Ok, let’s see

New policies include New Rules on Violence and Physical Harm’:

Specific threats of violence or wishing for serious physical harm, death, or disease to an individual or group of people is in violation of our policies.

Sounds good. So, I decided to check Twitter feed using ‘I hope Trump dies’ key words:

Hm… Weird. But these tweets are pretty new, so I sorted out the ones from June 1 to June 30

Then the notorious tweet written by Charlie Sheen after the death of Debbie Reynolds dating back to 12/28/2016 still alive and well

Then this verified lady

And many many others are still there. This definitely works the other way around, but we all know whose side Twitter picks.

But the most curious part of the blog post is the last paragraph:

Today, we are starting to enforce these policies across Twitter. In our efforts to be more aggressive here, we may make some mistakes and are working on a robust appeals process. We’ll evaluate and iterate on these changes in the coming days and weeks, and will keep you posted on progress along the way.

SO, apparently, Twitter openly admits implementation of censorship on the platform.

It’s almost 2k18, we live in the developed society, and here we are ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

P.S. Twitter still hasn’t explained why they blocked my account(s), and they haven’t added it to their policy. Interesting…

  1. Twitter lets one use thier product for free and therefore you must use it according to thier rules, they can and do offer a varity of pay to use contracts. One is free to utilize the service and just as free to not utilize it. Is not capitalism wonderful 🙂

    1. They do not, however, have the freedom to actively promote terrorists of the liberal left attacking innocent people in America.
      If Twitter wants to be a terrorist platform, they must be investigated.

  2. Twitter censors conservatives, & promotes radicalized terrorists of the liberal left.
    Twitter may have a right to some things, but promoting abusive/terrorist comments that get people hurt & killed is not one of them.
    Twitter could & should be folded for refusing to do anything about the terrorist attacks the left launches against the people.
    Twitter is a radicalized anti-Trump, anti-America platform that is being abused by the intolerant liberal left.
