#Thread Senator @tedcruz leading the charge against Big Tech Censorship in recent hearing on Internet Transparency:

“One issue that I’ve been very concerned about...& ppl across the country are concerned about is big tech using its power to engage in political censorship."

Senator @tedcruz: "One of the most frustrating things about dealing with the question of tech censorship is that it is all marked in darkness and obscurity. There is no transparency whatsoever."

.@tedcruz on the power of shadowbanning & other forms of censorship: "That is a degree of power handed to a handful of tech billionaires in California to monitor & police, & put not just a thumb, but all five fingers, a fist & their foot on the scales of political discourse."

LION TED!!!!!!:

Mr. Beckerman: ”I will say that these platforms seek to serve all Americans, regardless of political views, and are open platforms to do so."

@SenTedCruz: "Out of curiosity, based on what?" #BigTechCensorship

Beckerman: “[Certainly, mistakes are made sometimes with voices on the right but mistakes are often made with voices on the left.”

Senator @tedcruz : “Can you give an example?”

Beckerman: “Not off the top of my head.”

Senator @tedcruz : “Nobody else can either.”
