In their never-ending quest for world domination (including total control over the speech of Americans), Twitter has launched a new forum called “Birdwatch.” This new project appears to be heir latest attempt to make sure only certain tweets are allowed. As Texas Senator Ted Cruz put it, “Big Tech is designating itself to be the sole arbiter of truth.”
The angle of this new forum is that it is “crowd-sourced fact-checking.” According to Twitter, “Birdwatch allows people to identify information in Tweets they believe is misleading and write notes that provide informative context.” Though, despite Twitter’s insistence that these contributors will be diverse (including politically), we’ll believe it when we see it. We heard the same story from Facebook… who then proceeded to only contract left-leaning fact-checkers.
Anyone think Twitter will actually use this feature fairly? https://t.co/cW7EzPOiuj

Because these companies have been proven time and time again to be censoring conservative messages, shadow-banning organizations & individuals they don’t like, and otherwise silencing groups like ours…
… we have to be prepared to be banned ourselves.
