Twitter feeling the wrath of republicans’ revenge after blocking McConnell campaign

It is now sadly safe to assume that Twitter has no interest in the truth.

As a platform “for the people”, Twitter could and should have been one of the most powerful communication tools that the world has ever seen.  They had potential beyond what even the greatest minds of our times could imagine.  Sagan, Einstein, Tesla…none of these men envisioned a world in which communication was instantaneous and searchable, and we as human being have yet to fully grasp what this sort of tool will do for society as a whole.

The only concern now is whether or not Twitter can avoid the same fate as the dinosaur media, in which censorship and narrative-building are front and center.

All signs today point to “no”, after the platform suspended the account of a US Senate candidate who shared video of a protest that occurred at his home.

This censoring of actual reality has conservatives in an uproar, and the GOP is fighting back.

Republicans are going to war with Twitter after the platform froze the Mitch McConnell re-election account this week because the campaign posted a video of threats directed at the Senate majority leader, just as President Trump is planning a separate crackdown on left-wing social media bias.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Thursday said it won’t spend money on Twitter until the situation is “adequately addressed.” A top official with the Republican National Committee also said the RNC and the Trump campaign would not spend money with Twitter “until they address this disgusting bias.”

As of this writing, Twitter has yet to issue an apology for their actions.

This is far from the first time that Twitter has strayed from First Amendment, and their previous censorship of conservative viewpoints inspired President Trump to hold a social media summit at The White House last month.
