Example number 18,197 of how Twitter is basically an arm of the US government.
Twitter is singling out Chinese and Russian state media outlets while shielding US, British, and Canadian state media outlets. The double standards are so blatant
So according to Twitter, China and Russia have "state-affiliated media" but the UK and Canada don't.
As on YouTube and Facebook, this labeling double standard is intentional. So…
And here is MSNBC's favorite coup-endorsing "progressive" AOC endorsing the US government/Silicon Valley censorship campaign against foreign media outlets, which she conflates with "disinformation".
There is way more actual disinformation in the US media
I appreciate that Twitter is a platform that‘s at least *trying* to stop disinformation, verifying news outlets, etc.
Stopping misinformation isn’t abt sitting around for years …
This is actually a perfect artistic metaphor for the neoliberal hellscape we live in: A bunch of rich celebrities did a superficial act that helps no one, and put zero planning into it, so it's a hodgepodge of their own insufferable personal brands grinding together in cacophony.
Russia’s money sure goes a long way. Russian troll farm spent $46,000 on ads overwhelmingly unrelated to election, but yet Steyer says “Russia bought the election.” Imagine what Russian troll farm employees could’ve done w/ Steyer’s $250 million & Bloomberg’s $600 million? 🇷🇺 🤯 https://twitter.com/tomsteyer/status/1235302734632497153
Evo Morales nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize
“I am convinced that the Nobel Peace Prize for Evo Morales Ayma will be a fair recognition and an incentive in the struggle for inclusion, for the eradication of poverty and for sustainable development.”
Twitter has the most ridiculous, authoritarian censorship rules. @JordanChariton@twitter.com has been censored for quoting Biden saying "Thursday"
At what point is this not just an accident, but corporate censorship of people who challenge ruling-class propaganda?
NEWS: Twitter has “limited” @JordanChariton’s account—for reporti@JordanChariton@twitter.comOWN WORDS. Jordan can’t tweet…
After a report on al-Qaeda ruled Idlib that used the word "regime" no less than 7 times, CNN asks viewers to help raise funds for "humanitarian" NGOs including the Syrian American Medical Society, a USAID-funded pro-regime change group that helped legitimize the Douma narrative
@OPCW@twitter.com The OPCW responding to accusations that it is silencing dissidents and suppressing inconvenient findings by... silencing dissidents and hiding inconvenient comments on Twitter is the worst possible response.
The OPCW is only showing how compromised it is.
Congratulations are in order to Guardian’s Patrick Wintour who’s managed to write a whole article on global media suppression without mentioning the phrase “Julian Assange”. The foreign office will no doubt continue to be delighted. https://www.theguardian.com/media/2020/feb/17/uk-defending-press-freedom-amal-clooney
Example number 8,927,826 of how Twitter acts as an arm of the US empire, censoring and silencing dissidents when it is convenient for Western governments

WikiLeaks twitter account has been locked, shortly before Assange extradition hearing. All attempts to get it reopened via regular channels have been unsuccessful. It has been impossible to reach a human at twitter to resolve the issue. Can someone fix this?
I rather loathe politics, and almost always, politicians.
Gotta say though. I like Bernie
If you're a democrat in the US and still believe in the vote (unlike me), it strikes me he is the only viable choice.
Such little babies.
BREAKING: The internet is mean.
Pretending it's some sort of pathology unique to Sanders supporters is, and always has been, calculated deceit on the part of coddled elites who expect constant deference and are drowning in entitlement syndromes: https://twitter.com/JordanUhl/status/1225917939427237889 …
