One of the most contested political battlefields of the 2020 election has been, without a doubt, social media.
Twitter, Facebook, and others have been working overtime during the election, attempting to keep dangerous fringe extremists from gathering and plotting, as well as fact-checking stories and candidates.
And while this may sound like a nobel effort, there have been some serious concerns about the apparent bias of some of these outlets, especially after Twitter began censoring a New York Post article that was damaging to Joe Biden’s campaign.
On Friday, Twitter struck again.
Fox News broke the news of Twitter’s latest act of censorship, which occurred after Gidley revealed that he had been sent a mail-in ballot for someone who no longer lived at his residence.
The tweet said:
“”Got ‘my’…uh wait…no… ‘Daniel’s’ ballot in the mail?!? Who is that? Apparently it’s a former tenant who hasn’t lived in the unit for 8 YEARS!!! But yeah, sure…the mainstream media is correct…unsolicited vote-by-mail is ‘totally safe.’”
This is but one of several instances in which Twitter took action against the Trump team in the lead-up to the 2020 election.
Last week, Twitter also locked the account of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she shared the Post’s story shedding further light on the financial connections between the Biden family and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Hunter Biden served on the company’s board while his father was Vice President.
With 11 days left until the election, we have to wonder who else will fall under Jack Dorsey’s sword.
