Seriously. Is anyone surprised? The censoring undesirable speech & opinions is a cornerstone of liberal ideology.
Twitter bans Milo and many other conservatives, not a real shocker that it’s an anti-free speech arm of the Democratic party just like Facebook.
If Obama can’t take criticism from voters he must be great at negotiating with our aggressive enemies.
When you put yourself online, you’re going to get hate. Deal with it or just remove yourself.
Mediaite: According to a report from Buzzfeed, then-CEO of Twitter Dick Costolo wrote a secret algorithm in 2015 designed to censor abusive comments directed at President Barack Obama.
In 2015, Twitter made an attempt to supplant Reddit as the go-to site for celebrities to do Q&As with the public. When Obama agreed to a Twitter Q&A session, Costolo took steps to shield Obama from nasty tweets.
“According to a former senior Twitter employee, Costolo ordered employees to deploy an algorithm (which was built in-house by feeding it thousands of examples of abuse and harassing tweets) that would filter out abusive language directed at Obama,” reports Buzzfeed’s Charlie Warzel. “Another source said the media partnerships team also manually censored tweets, noting that Twitter’s public quality-filtering algorithms were inconsistent.”
