Project Veritas Undercover Videos Show Twitter Staff Bragging About Big Brother Tactics, Censoring Conservatives

From Project Veritas

Steven Pierre, Twitter engineer explains “shadow banning,” says “it’s going to ban a way of talking”

Former Twitter software engineer Abhinav Vadrevu on shadow banning: “they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it”

Former Twitter Content Review Agent Mo Norai explains banning process: “if it was a pro-Trump thing and I’m anti-Trump… I banned his whole account… it’s at your discretion”

When asked if banning process was an unwritten rule, Norai adds “Very. A lot of unwritten rules… It was never written it was more said”

Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety explains, “we’re trying to ‘down rank’… shitty people to not show up,” “we’re working [that] on right now”

“Shadow banning” to be used to stealthily target political views- former Twitter engineer says, “that’s a thing”

Censorship of certain political viewpoints to be automated via “machine learning” according to Twitter software engineer

Parnay Singh, Twitter Direct Messaging Engineer, on machine learning algorithms, “you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck…” “the majority of it are for Republicans”

(San Francisco) In the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation, current and former Twitter employees are on camera explaining steps the social media giant is taking to censor political content that they don’t like.

This video release follows the first undercover Twitter exposé Project Veritas released on January 10th which showed Twitter Senior Network Security Engineer Clay Haynes saying that Twitter is “more than happy to help the Department of Justice with their little [President Donald Trump] investigation.” Twitter responded to the video with a statement shortly after that release, stating “the individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent of speak for Twitter.” The video released by Project Veritas today features eight employees, and a Project Veritas spokesman said there are more videos featuring additional employees coming.

On January 3rd 2018 at a San Francisco restaurant, Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter Software Engineer explains a strategy, called “shadow banning,” that to his knowledge, Twitter has employed:

“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”

Twitter is in the process of automating censorship and banning, says Twitter Software Engineer Steven Pierre on December 8th of 2017:

“Every single conversation is going to be rated by a machine and the machine is going to say whether or not it’s a positive thing or a negative thing. And whether it’s positive or negative doesn’t (inaudible), it’s more like if somebody’s being aggressive or not. Right? Somebody’s just cursing at somebody, whatever, whatever. They may have point, but it will just vanish… It’s not going to ban the mindset, it’s going to ban, like, a way of talking.”

Olinda Hassan, a Policy Manager for Twitter’s Trust and Safety team explains on December 15th, 2017 at a Twitter holiday party that the development of a system of “down ranking” “shitty people” is in the works:

“Yeah. That’s something we’re working on. It’s something we’re working on. We’re trying to get the shitty people to not show up. It’s a product thing we’re working on right now.”

Former Twitter Engineer Conrado Miranda confirms on December 1st, 2017 that tools are already in place to censor pro-Trump or conservative content on the platform. When asked whether or not these capabilities exist, Miranda says, “that’s a thing.”

……At a San Francisco bar on January 5th, Pranay Singh details how the shadow-banning algorithms targeting right-leaning are engineered:

“Yeah you look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck. Then you look and parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then you look for stuff that matches that stuff.”

When asked if the majority of the algorithms are targeted against conservative or liberal users of Twitter, Singh said, “I would say majority of it are for Republicans.”

Really? Because we have many words that describe douchebags, and the majority are liberals.

Note how ‘certain words or phrases’ that indicate patriotism, backing the Constitution, support for Trump, and advocate for a strong America, are assigned algorithms and targeted for censorship because “They’re all Republican bots from Russia”:

Here are some more of the undercover videos:

 

Twitter’s co-founder Evan Williams isn’t a fan of free speech. He’s pretty pissed that social media provides an outlet for the patriotic opposition to circumvent liberal control of the main stream media. He says that he ‘was wrong for thinking that the world would be a better place if there was a platform for everyone to freely speak and exchange ideas.’  Really?  Leftwingnuts want to live in a world where everyone listens only to them, on their terms. Last I checked, the 1st amendment guarantees that right to everyone.

Williams laments that Twitter helped Trump win the election. I certainly hope so. Donald Trump takes his positions and case right to the American people without the interference of the hostile leftards in the media.

Sucks to be Williams.

Meet the leftwing Twitter tool who favors antifa thugs and decides who’s a ‘Nazi’:

This is the Twitter page of the liberal scrunt (https://twitter.com/jenclarke) who runs  Twitter support. She lets antifa, BLM, and other leftwing extremist blowhards run rampant with their hatespeech and rhetoric all over Twitter, but, conservatives get censored.

Her own Twitter timeline is full of race-baiting, anti-Trump, pro-Left, pro-Obama, anti-white posts and lots of support for the NFL douchebags who disrespect the flag and the anthem.

One of the ways the Twitter hierarchy has been censoring unwanted political viewpoints is ‘shadow banning’.  Twitter maintains a ‘whitelist’ of favored Twitter accounts and a ‘blacklist’ of unfavored accounts. Accounts on the whitelist are prioritized in search results, accounts on the blacklist have their posts hidden from both search results and other users’ timelines.  The blacklist usually consists of right-leaning posters. Leftwing lunatic fringe, racist minorities, and muzzie extremists get a pass. 

If you’re going to be slanted one way or the other as a news outlet or social media, be honest about it and don’t pretend to be ‘neutral’.

I fit all their targeted categories and I am not a “bot from Russia”.   Anyone who doesn’t goosestep to their leftwing politics is simply parsed and censored.

For those who are interested, there’s a free speech site called Gab (https://gab.ai/) where you can speak your mind and opinions without fear of jackbooted retribution. I’ve already joined.

    Pray,

    It’s primarily a way to silence dissent and censor debate. Liberals usually don’t like to have their viewpoints challenged or refuted. The major social media networks are run by liberals who do not like to have their propaganda questioned.
