Craigslist is community moderated with flagged posts... that can get really annoying if you are trying to sell something similar to someone else; and they keep flagging your ad(s) down so they may have a better chance to sell whatever it is than you do.

Twitter is a private business. Get used to it. You can #boycott Twitter if you want. Like people #boycott a lot of things.


This is exactly what we are doing right here, right now in this thread, in case it wasn't obvious.

Twitter has always claimed to be a platform for all-inclusive "free speech" while being caught over and over again censoring conservatives and libertarians. We are calling them out on their blatant lies and hypocrisy.

This is the reason why Twitter is tanking. Enjoy your echo chamber while it lasts!

Not surprised at all. Also, have seen suspected and have read about shadow bans on other large social media type sites. Especially during the political season and in politically leaning sections of the sites and topics. Wonder if info will come out on those too.

Well, seeing how some use it for extremist views in groups and also to plan not only flashmobs but attacks? There has been pressure to alter their "free speech" platform as it can is and has been used to co-ordinate things that have hurt people, which regardless of ideology it's doubtful any site wants to be responsible for such things... and well being financially responsible if something does occur only hurts twitter more in lawsuit after lawsuit for liability.

Using it as such a thing was never the intent for the site anyway; it was share some random thought or alert others to something they may find interesting; not a soapbox of propaganda. So when users twist that free speech to fit some intent or agenda that twitter never intended or wanted and end up in constant litigation for it occuring? What else can they do?

The problem is not that they are banned. The problem is that these people are not notified of their account status.

All these names combined have more than enough weight to leave to a new twitter and decimate twitter. Now that they will all know we may see twitter be split in two.

The best part is reading all these lefties.
I have never watched political views switch around like this

ctrl-left views
leaker=bad
illegal serf wages= cheap food= Good
Shadowbans=Corporate Cenrsorship=Good
CIA=good
war with Russia=Good

My favorite Shadow Ban is Malik Obama. Truly LOL

Conservatives are being treated like the Jews in Nazi Germany.


NO, they aren't.


Seriously?... How fast you forget what Obama and his administration have been doing...



...
Here are a couple of ludicrous and offensive conclusions from the highly politicized report, developed by the Extremism and Radicalization Branch of the Department of Homeland Security:

The Obama administration’s plans to restrict the ownership of firearms will motivate paranoid rightwing extremists to stockpile dangerous weapons in preparation for a violent attack
Unrealistic fears of communist regimes and "conspiracy theories" about the government’s plan to join a "One World Government" will lead to rightwing violence. (Note the reference to "conspiracy theories" in a document full of same.)
Military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who face challenges "reintegrating" into society may become terrorists or "lone wolf extremists." (This gem came under the insulting headline "disgruntled military veterans.")
Rightwing extremists are capitalizing on the election of an African-American president to recruit racist members.
The economic downturn will turn rightwing extremists into domestic terrorists who attack government buildings, police officers, and other government officials.
...

www.judicialwatch.org...

DOJ under Obama claimed the SPLC was helping them in the fight against "extremism", and SPLC has labeled people as being extremists and racists for simply not believing, and not bowing to left wing ideology.

For example, the SPLC posted a propaganda piece claiming that Ron Paul, and others like Judge Andrew Napolitano were extremists. Not to mention this labeling of anyone who would dare not bow down to Obama's far left-wing agenda, as being "possible extremists".

Ron Paul’s New Organization Reportedly Stacked with Extremists

Heck, the use by the Obama administration of the IRS to target conservative groups.

IRS admits targeting conservatives for tax scrutiny in 2012 election

Report, after report appeared from left-wing think-tanks bashing conservatives, correlating mainstream conservatism with far right groups. Including limited government activists, as well as claiming conservatives are a threat to the future, and only progressive/liberal ideology was forward thinking and the only ideology for the future.

Terrorism Center at West Point Warns Against Danger of American Limited-Government Activists and ‘Far Right’

Now that the left lost, they are using far-leftwing pawns that had been put in place by the Obama administration to stop President Trump.

Then there is the mention of labeling "right leaning websites and sources" as all being "fake news".

Not to mention the implementation of far left-wing groups to monitor social media such as Facebook, Yahoo, google and others, and having organizations linked to liberal like George Soros, in the continuous attempt by the far left to control people with ideologies leaning to the right.

That's exactly what the Nazis did. They demonized Jewish people and minorities first by claiming they were inhuman because of how they treated cows in their rituals. The German public was bombarded with propaganda after propaganda piece demonizing minorities, and Jewish people.

Today's left-wing machine are using the same types of tactics used by Nazis, but this time targeting people for having a conservative leaning, or for simply not agreeing with any far left-wing policy implemented by the Obama administration.

I did not read the entire thread but yes, in America you can discriminate against political views, and it's quite legal, sucks huh but alas, that is the truth.

if the Bakery had said they didn't want to bake a "liberal" a cake they would have won in court. You are allowed to not serve a Rebulican food, you can ban a democrat from Taxi service, you don't have to sell a coffin to a libertarian.


You just have to figure out who they are.

This happens all the time on CL and I hate the flag feature. It is the most BS way to allow "self moderation" of a public forum.

Health insurance companies are private businesses too. Slippery slope if you ask me. I wonder what the leftists reaction would be if they were unable to apply their health insurance over political views?

Indeed, or if restaurants and shops starting banning liberals...or only allowing people in who swore allegiance to Trump? The cries of nazism would be deafening.

Yep, it's only ok right now because it's not affecting their own political views. Once people start silencing their side and I'm sure it will happen if this is true. The riots will start once again. I honestly could care less about Twitter because ATS is the only social media platform I use, but I feel people aren't looking at this situation without their confirmation bias glasses on. I feel like we're all playing a game of Jenga and someone is about to pull the wrong piece and cause the whole thing to collapse.

I wonder if they can have you see your own posts and hide them from other people.

That way you think you are tweeting and you really aren't.


Just make two accounts and check each from the other account.

Hey I'm with you and all, but in their terms and conditions does it mention if you have conservative views you will be punished?

Even if it did... It is wrong.

Let's make it a race issue... What if Twitter said all people that are white and black are being shadow banned, is that OK? No...

We have laws against discrimination based on race, religion, etc... Such as when you apply for a job, at some point you will see verbiage saying they do not discriminate.

Discrimination is discrimination, let's call it what it is. It doesn't matter who the victim is.

If Twitter started banning all gay rights content without it being in their terms we know this would be all over the MSM.

I'm glad there are more level headed people in here...

Good company is hard to come by. I'm tired of seeing the ginormous political gap here. It all starts with finding middle ground and going from there. Problem is, neither side wants to agree with anything the "other side" says.

Just the other day I heard of a social experiment where they asked someone on one side of the spectrum a question, after the answer the person asking said,oh you agree with X, who is on the other side. The person changed their answer. We are being divided....

What's I also meant to mention is the shadow bans are seemingly not only for partisan leaning topics. Also, topics that taking the establishment of a whole into question and pointing out the fact of some of it. Such as NSA behavior before Snowden's revelation. Big Pharma, Monsanto, and more.

Wow...censorship. Is anyone really surprised by this? Reddit, Twitter and Youtube have started banning and censoring comments, and there are still people out there who don't find this disturbing? Sad...
