Anyone who spends a decent amount of time on Twitter knows that people tend to lose it when changes are made on there. If they make any sort of slight alteration to the way things are done, all of the regulars have an absolute fit. In most instances, we could not care less and we get used to it pretty quickly.
This particular instance is a bit tougher to swallow, though. As most readers already know, Twitter was flagging Trump’s tweets left and right.
They were claiming that he was spreading disinformation about the election, so this is the justification that they used. These rules allowed them to keep the people away from any information that may have influenced the election.
This was already bad enough but now Twitter is taking it to the next level. Now that the election is over, they are switching back to the rules that were in place before.
Once they had the ability to smack down every Trump tweet with a “fake news” claim, that was all she wrote. The tech giants were perfectly okay with censorship because they needed to make sure that their candidate was pushed through.
As soon as that happened, there was no need for the new censorship rules. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it?
This is incredible. Two weeks before the election Twitter changed how you retweet because they obviously didn’t want certain things to go viral. Now that they got the result they want, they’re going back to the old way.

“This is incredible. Two weeks before the election Twitter changed how you retweet because they obviously didn’t want certain things to go viral. Now that they got the result they want, they’re going back to the old way. Big tech is manipulating us in ways we can’t imagine,” said Dave Rubin.
We could not agree with him more. Anyone who is okay with this is perfectly fine with cheating their way to the top. Of course, we also remember when Twitter had a convenient stretch of downtime right when Tucker Carlson was about to blow the lid off the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
How can people be so blind?
Jack Dorsey needs to be held accountable for what has taken place here. There is no way that Biden would have been able to win without electoral fraud taking place but every American was supposed to look the other way. The election was stolen in a very coordinated effort and that’s the most alarming part.
Whether we are talking about social media campaigns that are designed to sow seeds of mistrust or we are talking about elected officials who always planned to look the other way, there is no shortage of fingers that can be pointed. We are not going to go so far as to say that Jack Dorsey deserves to go to prison but that’s the way that all of this is headed if cooler heads don’t prevail.
Instead of continuing to lie and letting the mainstream media prop them up, why don’t these people just tell the truth? The courts may end up looking upon them more favorably if so.
This is the oldest lesson that criminal lawyers end up teaching to their clients. If you are already lying before you even take the stand, there is not much that can be done to help you.
That’s why it should be in the best interests of people like Zuckerberg and Dorsey to make the right decision now. The longer they force the court systems to wait, the worse it is going to be for them.
Those who do not use these sites (because of the rampant disinformation) have been waiting for this day to come for quite some time now.
Twitter is essentially sticking out their collective tongues at Trump and daring him to do something about this. They are telling him that they have the ability to shift an election and there’s nothing that he can say. If his account ends up being suspended under mysterious circumstances later on, don’t say that we didn’t warn you about it.
It’s all so predictable.
