Twitter is in hot water after a recent report run by right-leaning media outlet, Breitbart News.
Twitter has claimed it is removing people from its platform because it is “fairly applying” its terms of service.
The result is a many conservatives and ideologically right-of-center users have been de-platformed. So is Twitter being even-handed?
Not according to Breitbart’s reporting. Breitbart listed at least seven accounts that Twitter has left up despite being active in the spread of misinformation and propaganda:
a) The Chinese Communist Party
b) Ayatollah Khamenei and Iran’s Many Media Arms
c) Kremlin Leaders and Russian ‘Bots’
d) Colin Kaepernick: ‘We Have the Right to Fight Back!’
e) Nation of Islam Radical Louis Farrakhan
f) Far-Left Agitator Linda Sarsour
These accounts have spewed lies, propaganda, calls for violence, dehumanization and misinformation. Yet Twitter lets them stay.
