James O’Keefe and his brain-child Project Veritas strikes again, bringing the American public a new episode from their blockbuster series American Pravda. This time, it’s Twitter time. Project Veritas’ latest undercover video (s), on which they’ve been working for the past year, shows a high-ranking Twitter engineer explaining how the company uses algorithms to ban (or shadow-ban) users, or to censor opposing political opinions, basically everything that’s to the right of Marx and Engels. However, this breaking news is just hard proof for what many “conspiracy theorists” were warning about since like, forever, i.e. this is another conspiracy theory becoming a conspiracy fact.
This video shows that increasingly, the biggest threat to your freedom, your liberties and your privacy is not from big government (don’t get me wrong, government still poses a serious threat), but now the bigger threat may be coming from big tech. And consider fascism dawning upon us(another left wing collectivist ideology by the way) where the state and big corporations go hand in hand. Orwell’s 1984 would look like Alice in Wonderland considering the technological advances of today, not to mention tomorrow. Project Veritas’ latest revelation is now everywhere, rocking the hugely leftist/SJW Silicon Valley, and has the POTUS and the White House rightly enraged.
James O’Keefe has struck again, exposing the rampant anti Trump/anti Conservative all out censorship that now big tech is trying to wage against the President, his supporters and Conservatives in general. A female undercover journalist, presumably hot looking and a very good actor (just listen to her talking to the Twitter engineer), met with a high ranking Twitter employee by the name of Clay Haynes, who actually admitted to her that since Twitter is based in San Fransicko, California, i.e. the bluest state in the union, if you want to work at Twitter (and presumably any other big tech corporation), which is a very “liberal” company, just like Silicon Valley generally speaking, i.e. rabidly anti Trump and anti Conservative, you’d have to be a leftist and a social justice warrior. This is essentially an unwritten policy from the top. He also admits that their goal is not just to censor conservatives, but in particular to bring Trump down. And so he in fact admits in this conversation that he personally is spying on Trump’s Twitter account and he has been secretly sending all the POTUS’ tweets and private messages (even those deleted) to the Department of Justice and the FBI to help Mueller and the investigation into Trump. Basically, this guy openly admits that Twitter is a massive surveillance tool, just like Facebook, Google et al.
Besides Clay, we have Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety admitting on tape that Twitter is implementing algorithms/software aimed at down-ranking conservatives, so, let me quote, “shitty people to not show up” on users’ timelines. Former Twitter software engineer Abhinov Vadrevu says:
“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. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”
As per Twitter Direct Messaging Engineer Parnay Singh’s own words, Twitter’s learning algorithms are programmed with 5,000 keywords to describe a redneck. The list includes words like America, Trump and images of guns, the US flag and Christian crosses. Search and destroy software is used to down rank conservatives and to delete “bot” accounts. Singh explained:
“Yeah you look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck. Then you look and parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then you look for stuff that matches that stuff. I would say majority of it are for Republicans,”
Mo Norai, who’s a Former Twitter Content Review Agent says that Twitter personnel can ban accounts if they just disagree with someone’s political views:
“Yeah, if they said this is: ‘Pro-Trump’ I don’t want it because it offends me, this, that. And I say I banned this whole thing, and it goes over here and they are like, ‘Oh you know what? I don’t like it too. You know what? Mo’s right, let’s go, let’s carry on, what’s next?”
