For many people, Twitter is a space to share thoughts and rant about their daily life. For others it is a political platform and they strictly use it to speak out. For some, it's a space to do both.
However, Twitter has become much like Facebook in the sense of censorship. If you post something the Twitter gods don't like, your account can be banned.
Now the social media giant has a new feature to guide people on how to think and post. Forget original thoughts! Now, if you start to post something that contains what they deem to be "harmful" language, you will receive a warning ahead of time. So they basically give you a chance to change your thought and comply or be punished.
“When things get heated, you may say things you don’t mean,” Twitter’s official support account tweeted. “To let you rethink a reply, we’re running a limited experiment on iOS with a prompt that gives you the option to revise your reply before it’s published if it uses language that could be harmful.”
So who exactly gets to decide what speech is "harmful" and what isn't? Just wondering because with snowflakes these days, just agreeing with the president is racist, hate speech. If I tweet, "Make America great again!" will I get a warning and possibly a punishment?
“We’re trying to encourage people to rethink their behavior and rethink their language before posting because they often are in the heat of the moment and they might say something they regret,” Sunita Saligram, Twitter’s global head of site policy for trust and safety, told Reuters.
Twitter’s “trust and safety” department was acknowledged by its then-policy manager, Olinda Hassan to be “controversial,” in an undercover video recordedby Project Veritas in 2018.
In the same secretly-recorded exchange, Hassan said one of the things the Trust & Safety team was working on in 2018 was ways to “get the shitty people to not show up.” (The comment was made in response to an undercover reporter asking her about the prominence of tweets from author and filmmaker Mike Cernovich).
Twitter now appears to be taking a different approach. Instead of trying to get you to not show up, the platform intends to train its users out of their bad behavior, like unruly dogs.
Obey. Comply. Be a good boy.

Feminist Lawyer Tweets Ultimate Insult to Tara Reade and Victims Everywhere
I'll be honest, when I first saw this tweet from feminist lawyer Lisa Bloom, I seriously didn't believe it. I thought it was a fake tweet that someone had made, because I first saw it as a screenshot on Facebook. Then I went to go look it up and it was true.
But what Bloom said just demonstrates the absurdity of the Democratic Party, and how much they'll overlook the worst crimes to support their guy.
