Is Twitter Censoring Tweets That Promote Conservative Views And Expose Islamic Terrorism?

Twitter isn’t merely targeting spammers. For weeks, users have been reporting that tweets from populist conservatives, members of the alternative right, cultural libertarians, and other anti-PC dissidents have disappeared from their timelines.

Rumours that Twitter has begun ‘shadowbanning’ politically inconvenient users have been confirmed by a source inside the company, who spoke exclusively to Breitbart Tech. His claim was corroborated by a senior editor at a major publisher.

EDITOR’S NOTE: In the last 24 hours, NTEB has published some very hard-hitting articles exposing the truth behind the Islamic terror attack which took place over the weekend in Orlando. Our web traffic has been predictably high and steady as tens of thousands of readers log on to read and share our stories. So imagine our shock and surprise when we looked at our Twitter account and see that nearly no one has been able to access our tweets all day today. Hmm, I wonder how that could be?

According to the source, Twitter maintains a ‘whitelist’ of favoured Twitter accounts and a ‘blacklist’ of unfavoured accounts. Accounts on the whitelist are prioritised in search results, even if they’re not the most popular among users. Meanwhile, accounts on the blacklist have their posts hidden from both search results and other users’ timelines.

Our source was backed up by a senior editor at a major digital publisher, who told Breitbart that Twitter told him it deliberately whitelists and blacklists users. He added that he was afraid of the site’s power, noting that his tweets could disappear from users’ timelines if he got on the wrong side of the company.

Shadowbanning, sometimes known as “Stealth Banning” or “Hell Banning,” is commonly used by online community managers to block content posted by spammers. Instead of banning a user directly (which would alert the spammer to their status, prompting them to create a new account), their content is merely hidden from public view.

For site owners, the ideal shadowban is when a user never realizes he’s been shadowbanned.

However, Twitter isn’t merely targeting spammers. For weeks, users have been reporting that tweets from populist conservatives, members of the alternative right, cultural libertarians, and other anti-PC dissidents have disappeared from their timelines.

Twitter censoring Christian Conservative sites and posts:

As you can see by the graphic below, our Twitter page gets over a quarter million impressions/views monthly. Since the Islamic terror attack on Sunday, that ability seems to have been turned off.


Among the users complaining of shadowbans are sci-fi author and alt-right figurehead Vox Day, geek culture blogger “Daddy Warpig,” and the popular pro-Trump account Ricky Vaughn. League of Gamers founder and former World of Warcraft team lead Mark Kern, as well as adult actress and anti-censorship activist Mercedes Carrera, have also reported that their tweets are not appearing on the timelines of their followers.

The pattern of shadowban reports, which skews towards the alt-right, the populist right, and cultural libertarians, follows close on the heels of Twitter’s establishment of a “Trust and Safety Council” packed with left-wing advocacy groups, as well as Islamic research centre the Wahid Institute. source

    This was going on last fall in the heat of Election 2016 debate and discussion. They’ve been at it a while now.

    Yep! There are only two things wrong with the whole world: muslims and liberals. Muslims kill people and liberals defend them. Ain’t rocket science!

  • Geoffrey, I have a screenshot on my Twitter of the same thing. The analytics prove that is EXACTLY what Twitter is doing

    I have been banned by Facebook into my 4th month now, but I’d rather be told I’m “cut off” than for FB to be hiding me from everyone and I not knowing it. I have an account with Twitter but rarely use it. That won’t change for sure now.

  • Big brother is not ONLY watching now .. He is Controlling EVERYTHING posted on FB .. My postings of politically incorrect material , criticism of government and TRUTHER information is disallowed .. and folks it is going to get progressively worse as they gather information on everybody make judgements and use their power to only allow what they see fit .. No More Free Speech it’s flushed

    The powers that be read everyone’s online comments, their emails and twitter posts…even ‘private’ emails have their eyeballs all over it, well machines looks out for keywords…what is supposed to be for our good is often used against us, such as a doctor and teacher in UK having a private discussion on social media talking about Christianity and quoted Scripture, next thing he knows his boss pulls him up on the carpet, he might ‘offend someone’ and is suspended, long lists of students, teachers, church ministers all finding themselves in the whole heap of trouble, goes on their record that they had a warning from the authorities…
    You can get arrested for things you say online…ridiculous that Christianity is seen as dangerous.

    So then, the serpents coils tighten even more and more freedoms are lost, we are told what to think, what to believe and what morality is okay by Big Brother. Anyone who disagrees is labelled with vile slurs and untrue things said about them…
    Anyone who condemns the new morality being shoved down our throats…

    Now there are authorities going to churches, recording what is said there in the sermons in case someone says something ‘politically incorrect’ so they can persecute someone perhaps the Church minister preaching on why abortion is murder of the innocents, that will certainly upset a lot of people and they will howl with rage against him and call him monster and hater of women…most pastors are frightened these days…controversy matters are ignored altogether in case the ‘thought police’ come for them…poor guy might get hauled away and imprisoned for just speaking out loud his Christian beliefs. Welcome to the new world…
    I’m not saying here to be purposely offensive we should treat everyone with love and respect, however, we should be prepared to stand by the Word of God, and not conform to the worldly morality. To be respectful of those in authority, to pray for those in authority. To be kind and gracious and to share the Gospel with love…

    We’ve seen Christians targeted for their beliefs increasingly in the United States and in Europe.
    Christians need to prepare for the persecution that is coming.

    God Bless you

    Maybe twitter would change it’s practice of banning if a few on the blacklist got a lawsuit going against twitter for censoring free speech and violating the first amendment right of those on the blacklist.

  • Only the state is forbidden from enacting censorship. Twitter can do what it wants to as a private entity.
