Twitter has finally unblocked Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe’s account after attempting to silence the conservative journalist over his expose on the social media giants direct political censorship of conservatives.
Multiple media outlets have noted that before the suspension, O’Keefe had been gaining upwards of 10,000 new followers per day since the release of his bombshell expose that showed Twitter employees literally bragging about censoring conservative viewpoints on the platform.
“The suspension was likely an attempt by Twitter to bury the news story exposing company practices, but Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was ultimately bombarded with over 20,000 tweets demanding he lift O’Keefe’s suspension,” wrote Kit Daniels.
“Twitter is trying to block our journalism,” O’Keefe was also quoted as saying.
Keep in mind this wasn’t some small-scale conservative leaning hit piece against Twitter. O’Keefe’s expose included actual video footage of Twitter engineers admitting it all.
As an article on The Daily Sheeple noted, “In what represents a chokeslam of an exposé, Project Veritas has released undercover video of Twitter engineers admitting that they deliberately censor conservative opinions and are implementing a way of relegating “shitty people” so their content is shadow banned.”
“In the video, current and former Twitter employees confirm virtually everything that conservatives have long suspected about the left-wing company silencing people on the right.”
The company even “shadow bans” certain accounts who still think they are using the platform but their content is actually censored to everyone else.
“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control,” former Twitter employee Abhinov Vadrevu can be heard saying in the undercover video. “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.”
All in all, it is clear that both Twitter and Facebook are absolutely 100% working against conservatives across the internet and will continue to do so until Americans finally demand real change.
When will enough be enough?
