Big Tech has become an extension of the establishment.
Tech giants like Twitter have been caught doing the bidding of Democrats.
And eyes rolled after newly published Twitter findings on bias claimed something astonishing about Conservatives on Twitter.
According to an internal Twitter investigation of tweets from news outlets and elected officials in seven countries (Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States), Twitter claims that it is biased in favor of the political Right.
That’s right, Twitter just told Conservatives not to worry because even though they’re being censored, because when they’re not banned or their tweets aren’t labeled misinformation, Twitter’s algos are actually helping them.
Anybody who’s been paying attention to Big Tech over the past few years knows this is bogus, but the Left seized on the opportunity to suggest the “myth” of left-wing bias had been “debunked.”
Here’s what’s complex: The team did phenomenal work identifying *what* is happening. Establishing *why* these observed patterns occur is a significantly more difficult question to answer and something META will examine.

This study leaves out a lot of key information.
For example, which outlets and elected officials were selected?
And were the “amplified” messages from the Right met with widespread attacks from the Left?
Twitter has the power to determine which tweets top trends and which ones don’t.
When something pertaining to the Right trends, it’s almost always something negative, or is met with derision from the Left.
Many prominent conservative voices have been completely booted from the platform.
The deeper problem is that Twitter doesn’t even realize how biased it is.
For example, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast with independent journalist Tim Pool.
During the discussion, Pool made a point by asking Dorsey what Twitter’s position was on gender expression.
Dorsey said Twitter enforced the “centrist” position, but he didn’t even realize that was the leftist position.
Conservatives are also often denied the “verified” blue checkmark symbol that signals a certain level of credibility on Twitter.
Investigative journalist James O’Keefe of Project Veritas was denied a blue checkmark despite having hundreds of thousands of followers.
O’Keefe was later banned from Twitter for supposedly having multiple accounts, which he denies.
The purging of O’Keefe is just one example of Twitter’s bias.
And it’s undeniable the social media site shutting down the spread of the Hunter Biden laptop story from The New York Post right before the election could have changed the outcome of the 2020 election.
Twitter has a clear bias against right-wingers, and no amount of internal studies is going to change that.
