For weeks, only certain users of the social media network Twitter have reported the disappearance of their tweets from their timelines. And it’s no accident or technological glitch. Twitter is censoring tweets and people whose ideology it doesn’t agree with. These include conservatives, Christians, people who support the Constitution, or gun rights, are all put on “black lists.”
Twitter assembled a new “Twitter Trust & Safety Council” to “ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.” But safety and expression is relative. Both depend on what and by whom is tweeted.
