“Woke” corporations have become a huge problem.
They are doing the dirty work that Democrat politicians cannot do.
Now, Democrats snapped their fingers and forced a company to do something deeply disturbing.
Big Tech has become another enforcement arm of the Democrat Party.
Social media platforms arguably have more power than the corporate-controlled press, which the Democrats also control.
But now Big Tech and the media elites are working together.
And Twitter made an eye-opening move after pressure from BuzzFeed.
The leftist outlet noted that actress “Ellen Page” was trending on Twitter because right-leaning political commentators Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin were both suspended from the platform for mentioning her name.
Page “transitioned” to Elliot Page, meaning that references to Ellen are verboten – invoking the old name of a trans person is called “deadnaming,” which is a serious offense in Clownworld.
After the nudge from BuzzFeed, Twitter shut down the trend.
BuzzFeed News reported that after the outlet “contacted a Twitter spokesperson, Page’s deadname no longer appeared to be trending. Twitter spokesperson Trenton Kennedy confirmed the site had removed it as a trending topic. In a statement to BuzzFeed News, Kennedy reiterated the site’s policies and said allowing Page’s deadname to trend was a mistake.”
So Twitter is “allowing” stories to trend.
If there were any doubt as to whether or not Twitter was manipulating its algorithms and selecting which topics will trend and which ones won’t.
Twitter can essentially create news cycles—or kill them—out of thin air.
Twitter spokesman Trenton Kennedy said, “The term you referenced should not have been allowed to appear in Trends, and it has since been removed and prohibited from appearing in Trends…Our teams are constantly evaluating our internal processes for mitigating this from happening.”
Recently, a Twitter senior engineer was caught on camera saying that the employees are “commie as f*ck.”
This is Twitter’s far-Left bias on display for all to see.
The examples continue to stack up.
Twitter allowed Donald Trump’s tax returns to be disseminated on the platform, but blocked The New York Post’s bombshell report on Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” — which, is now known to have contained voice mail messages from Joe Biden proving he was aware of Hunter’s business ties to Chinese companies controlled by Communist government.
Twitter locked The Post out of its account for nearly two weeks, and would not even allow the story to be shared via private direct message.
Wokeness is spreading, and social media is one of the main vectors.
Elon Musk cannot take control of Twitter soon enough.
