Case study:

Visiting foreign lecturer wishes to make reference to igloo/kayak/#blubber economy. Makes mistake of using word “#Eskimo”.

Is corrected for not saying “#Inuit”.

Corrector corrected, because not all igloo/kayak/#blubber guys are #Inuit.

Corrector-corrector corrected because not all Inuit are igloo/kayak/blubber guys.

Sociologists and anthropologists climb in, and the word “Athabascan” appears, inconclusively.

Linguists challenge spelling of “#Athabaskan”.

Ad hoc discussion of social-justice aspects of #CanadianNavy having a ship called “HMCS Athabaskan”, possibly previously “HMCS Athabascan”, deployed in war in support of #colonialist-#imperial interests.

#Twitter sta auto-bannando gli utenti che postano meme a favore del #VoterID

Capite? Gli algoritmi leggono e bannano i contenuti delle immagini, a discrezione dei #BigTech!

#Censura #StopTheBias #Mameli #4agosto #Italia #Salvini #Europa #DecretoSicurezzabis
E se iniziassero a bannare i meme che chiedono la verità su #Bibbiano?
Sul ponte Morandi?
Sul carabiniere Rega?

State. pronti.

+ tutti gli account che Twitter ha sospeso perché stavano postando info in real time su #ElPasoShooting in contrapposizione ai #FakeNews che stavano diffondendo molte versioni discordanti assurde(tipo caso #CiercielloRega)

Non hanno più il controllo della narrativa. E lo sanno.

The trial of two #ProudBoys involved in the #NY9 incident began yesterday.

Defense contended #GavinMcInnes was a satirist whose work was taken out of context.

@ADL dir. @orensegal stated violence is a core tenant of Proud Boys charter.

@RVAwonk @lighttuponlight
2/ In 2017, (during an #IRB approved research project), I sought to probe Gavin’s #altright connections & explore the possibility that the #ProudBoys were a #radicalization vector.

Prior to this I had studied foreign #terrorism.… @JD_JournalDerad

Hey @TwitterSupport: What kind of stupid shit is this?

It's not enough that you INTENTIONALLY mess with (change) our settings daily, but now you guys alter our languages settings and we can't un-select them?

Seriously, WTF?

@parscale @WhiteHouse #FreeSpeech #WWG1WGA
@TwitterSupport @parscale @WhiteHouse Can't imagine why my acct is set to Estonian, Romanian, Czech, Welsh, and Hindi. And now I can't even change back to English only. But you guys aren't messing with Conservatives.

Ok, sure.

This is some straight up bullshit.
@TwitterSupport @parscale @WhiteHouse Oh...and Korean. Because yeah...I need that one too.

@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow But Aaron, there is a price to pay for pushing fiction, rather than facts: And that is that most of these (fake-) news outlets lost all or at least a lot of credibility and what is #journalism without credibilty?
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 2. I recall a time when #CNN was "first for breaking news", the go-to channel when big news broke (from the passing of Princess Diana to 9/11), since #Election2016 many rightly called it "The Clinton News Network" & I hardly tune in.
#TrumpRussia #Media
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 3. Many great papers made the same mistake: The #NewYorkTimes, with 127 Pulitzer Prizes, suddenly allowed opinion pieces to be written by conspiracy nut #LouiseMensch. You can damage your good reputation with just one lousy piece.

2017 Unanimous #SCOTUS decision - all speech is protected. This Congress and every member who voted yes is in direct violation of Matal vs Tam.

Impeach these fascists.
This resolution is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!

According to #SCOTUS the government may not prohibit speech, even if it is racist. There is not 1st Amendment exception for Hate Speech as decided by a unanimous court in June 2017. This is an outrage. This #Resolution is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Signees should be impeached. #maga
The Government may not restrict or prohibit speech from ANY citizen.

The ultimate bias on Twatter AOC with 4.7 million followers gets a retweet ratio of 1.1% and like ratio of 2.7 % let’s compare this to Donald Trump keep in mind a retweet or like does not mean someone is supporting or not it’s just a engagement or activity so with a similar ratio
President Trump would have the following numbers at same ratio with 61.9 mill followers 680,900 retweets he has 14.1k. 656,000 short his like ratio should be 1,865,700 likes it’s 1.8 million short with is less that 4% of a equal ratio or a 96% suppression on likes and a 98%
Suppression on retweets! No one can deny that this is bias. The analytics retweet bias it’s not 5 % or 10% or 20% or 30% or 40% or 50% or 60% or 70% or 80% or 90% it’s 98% suppression !
This is ridiculous! @realDonaldTrump #Freespeech #Politicalbias #QAnon #WakeUpAmerica

@financialeyes Hi Ranjan, Tommy Robinson is obviously a Zionist Fellow Traveller, this is not why he is being persecuted. That he is being used as a Useful idiot for Zionism again is not the cause of his persecution. 1/2
@financialeyes Robinson (((Not his real name))), Is being persecuted as he has an un-sanctioned, un-licensed and disapproved platform representing a Silent Majority that rarely vote and generally termed the Lumpen Proletariat, The Mob, The Great unwashed those the establishment 2/3
@financialeyes 3/3 wish in High Victorian pedagogy to Be Seen and not heard like good compliant children, Those who Calvin said. "Must be kept poor to remain obedient" . I think it is probably fair to say (Yaxley-Lennon) is Islamaphobic, not that he is Rascist or Fascist 3/4

#UN Launches All-out War on #FreeSpeech
In other words, forget everything about the free exchange of ideas: the UN feels that its 'values' are being threatened and those who criticize those values must therefore be shut down.…
Naturally, #UN assures everyone that, "Addressing hate speech doesn’t mean limiting/prohibiting freedom of speech. It means keeping hate speech from escalating into smth more dangerous, particularly incitement to discrimination, hostility & violence 🙄
Except the #UN most definitely seeks to #ProhibitFreedomOfSpeech, especially the kind that challenges the #UNAgendas.

@realDonaldTrump 1. The very important step in #SocialMedia is that #Tech-companies can no longer lock out #users by hiding behind "we are a private company & our rules apply"!

Social media today is part & parcel of #freespeech & participating in the public forum of ideas.

@realDonaldTrump 2. So #banning people from main #SocialMedia-sites is like a form of exile: "Your ideas are no longer wanted here!"

Access to social media today is like access to a phone 25 years ago - It is now a main tool of social interaction.

@realDonaldTrump 3. So rules, regulations, if need be laws, are required forcing #SocialMedia-companies to stop acting like an autocratic #BigBrother, #banning & muting people almost at will (hiding behind "our rules").

There's no throttling of conservative voices on social media, right?

Explain this disparity in reach even with the latter one having MORE engagements.

69 r/t's = 90,424 impressions Mar 2019
539 r/t's = 20,679 impressions July 2019

#SocialMediaSummit #FreeSpeech #MAGA
This tweet has earned a whopping 4 retweets and 10 impressions in the first 7 minutes. Weird, huh? 🙄
Roughly 20 minutes in....and we're up to a whopping 24 impressions.

I have 26K followers. Reconcile that.

[1] A conspiratorial campaign is being led against the Australian people. You are being SILENCED. #FreeSpeech

It seems as though every day there's an "oh shit how can this get any worse moment". But it's exactly what #Folau wants. It's exactly whet they want. Let me explain >
[2] #FreeSpeech is a concept as old as time. At his trial in 399BC Socrates stated "If you offered to let me off on condition I am not to speak my mind, I should say to you Men of Athens, I shall obey the Gods rather than you" >
[3] In 1644, poet John Milton published Areopagitica, stating "He who destroys a good book, kills reason itself". In 1689, the UK Bill of Rights granted '#FreedomOfSpeech in Parliament' - a concept that to this day is enshrined, allowing mp's to speak freely in Parliament >

The Left’s explosive, prolonged rage at the election of President Donald Trump on Nov. 8, 2016, gave new life to the ultra-violent leftist movement known as Antifa. 2)
#LeftistRage #AntifaTerrorists
As a result, Antifa, which has been described as a revolutionary communist-anarchist militia movement that aspires to forcibly overthrow the United States government, is responsible for “a level of sustained political street warfare not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s.” 3)

"You cannot give self-government to anybody. He has got to earn it for himself. You can give him the chance to obtain self-government, but he himself out of his own heart must do the governing. He must govern himself. That is what it means.
That is what self-government means. . . . There must be control. There must be mastery, somewhere, and if there is no self- control and self-mastery, the control and the mastery will ultimately be imposed from without."

Strong advocates of #FreeSpeech should be the most sensitive to the responsibilities that accompany this right.

But the opposite often seems to be the case... THREAD
Central to the case against government restriction is the idea of individual responsibility, that we ought to be trusted to exercise our rights (such as freedom of expression) wisely and justly, in ways that don’t infringe on the rights of others.
Also the idea of social responsibility: that society (as distinct from government) ought to resolve conflicts of ideas and opinions - through counter-argument, shunning, contempt, even (dare I say) de-platforming.

The Trump Administration is fighting for free speech online.

No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!
