Elon Musk Shows Twitter’s Censorship: How Bad It Is!

Twitter's attempts to stifle right-leaning perspectives on the site have been completely revealed after years of deceiving the public about its biased censoring techniques. The platform's content moderation employees made censoring judgments based on political prejudice, as Elon Musk, the company's new CEO, openly admitted.

The incident began when writer Kyle Becker tweeted about how left-wing media activists were falsely portraying Musk as a right-winger. Imagine if @ElonMusk were the right-wing bogeyman that these privileged left-wing journalists claim he is, and he made the decision to go the other way and ban all left-wing "fake news" from @Twitter. They would have nothing left to print, he wrote. Musk reacted, pointing out that under the previous administration, left-wing accounts that publish false narratives were not banned:

He used the Associated Press's publication of a now-debunked story stating that Russia fired missiles into Poland as an example. Of course, there are several such instances of activist media disseminating false stories on Twitter. The bird app has been used to spread every fabrication, fraud, and scam they have made. In fact, during the last ten years, it has been one of their main propaganda weapons.

The previous administration did not punish those who spread "misinformation." As a result, members of the activist media were able to use platforms like Facebook to promote their ideas without worrying about repercussions. However, when they criticized the left's claims about certain ideas, the platform's censors would often prevent conservative voices from speaking out. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they would often prevent people from discussing the vaccines and virus. To help Joe Biden win the presidency, the firm that worked for him decided to prevent the New York Post from reporting on Hunter Biden's laptop.

Not that left-wing accounts have never been banned—far from it. However, according to Musk, the prominent influencers and activist media sites didn't get the same treatment. For years, it has been quite clear that people who oversaw Twitter's content moderation were skewed in the left's direction. During an undercover investigation by Project Veritas, its workers even acknowledged shadow banning accounts that advocated for conservative ideas and that had previously been prohibited. Thankfully, Musk restored their account. Another constructive move in the right way, this. Musk's decision to openly admit that the corporation favored right-wing viewpoints while punished leftist falsehoods is noteworthy since it verifies those who have long complained about these practices. Progressives can no longer claim that there is no biased censoring on social media when the company's CEO has very publicly acknowledged it. This should be another step in the direction of what Musk promised, namely a platform that encourages the expression of a wide range of opinions without selective restriction.
