‘Twitter Files 2’ Reveals Twitter DID Shadowban And Blacklist Conservatives — Here’s The 411


The second batch of the Twitter files just dropped and it confirmed what right-wingers have been suspecting for years.

On Thursday night, former New York Times editor, Bari Weiss, published the second batch of what has come to be known as “The Twitter Files” and this one was all about the behind-the-scenes tools that were being used to suppress right-wing speech on the platform.

In the thread, Weiss gave examples of how this was used to “deboost” right-wing accounts like Dan Bongino, Charlie Kirk, and Libs of Tik Tok, but also of the secret blacklisting of Stanford School of Medicine Professor, Dr. Jay Battacharya, who was critical of COVID lockdowns.

Here’s the entire thread:

Dr. Battacharya, who co-authored the Great Barrington Declaration, reacted to the revelation that his views were being suppressed.

Dan Bongino was rather blunt during his appearance on Hannity.

Charlie Kirk appeared on Tucker Carlson with his reaction.

Chaya Raichik appeared by phone on Tucker Carlson’s show to discuss the repeated action taken against her account despite no specific violation of the Twitter rules.

Interestingly, similar action wasn’t taken when Libs of Tik Tok was doxxed — her name and address were published without her knowledge or consent.

Conservatives have noticed for years that certain topics and individuals just wouldn’t trend on Twitter despite filling the timelines of right-wingers, but the Powers That Be™ at Twitter insisted that there was no shadowbanning or suppression going on. Now we know that they lied.

Of course, a number of Lib journos — but I repeat myself — insist that Weiss’s thread is a nothingburger and we also knew that this nothingburger was a nothingburger for years.

Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald exposed the gaslighting in a lengthy thread.

Despite their current dismissal that reducing reach without telling users is “nothing new” and part of the terms of service, the Regime Media, like former Twitter executives, had insisted that shadowbanning did not exist.

The higher-ups at Twitter lied about “shadowbanning” or “visibility filtering” based on political ideology.

And lied.

And even lied to Congress under oath.

Former top-level Twitter executive, Vijaya Gadde, who played a key role in suppressing the New York Post’s exposé on Hunter Biden’s Laptop From Hell and suspending then-President Donald Trump’s account has also been lying for years that there is no anti-conservative bias at Twitter.

Here is Tim Pool explaining to Gadde in 2019 that the bias is baked into Twitter policies.

No wonder she cried when Elon bought Twitter.

Yoel Roth, former head of Site Integrity, also lied. His lies were a little more elegant than Gadde’s since they used a little more sleight of hand.

The Regime Media isn’t even really covering this really, huge story.

It’s about much more than just a few political commentators growing their platform — it’s about the ability to have conservative views in the public square, period.

That includes the ability of right-wing candidates to get their message out.
