Biased Twitter Continues To Rig Platform Against Conservatives!

Adriana Cohen on

Paging Elon Musk! Wishful thinking and a proposed $44 billion buyout won't fix Twitter's extreme bias against conservatives. The corrupt social media platform continues to suppress conservative thought and opinion -- big time -- and I have the screenshots to prove it.

After quitting the social media platform in January 2021 in protest of its rampant censorship of conservatives, myself included, I decided to give it another try this week to see if the billionaire entrepreneur's laudable support for free speech and moves to acquire the network have improved its liberal bias. Not a chance! It turns out the far-left activists that run Twitter and its secretive algorithms are still rigging the platform in the Democratic Party's favor -- in plain view -- by pushing users to follow liberal lawmakers, media outlets and other lefty accounts versus conservative ones.

When rejoining Twitter this week, it asked me to select topics I'm interested in. I chose "outdoors" and "business/finance." Then it made suggestions of who to follow. Get ready to cringe ...

One of its recommendations was chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a "Russia Hoax" conspiracy theorist and known misinformation peddler who led the charge on former President Donald Trump's impeachment and currently sits on the slanted Jan. 6 House Committee trying to drum up evidence to indict the 45th president to stop him from running again in 2024.

What the heck does that liberal lawmaker -- and rabid Trump hater -- have to do with my preferred topics of interest? Zero.

Twitter also suggested I follow dozens of other liberal lawmakers, including President Joe Biden's two accounts, first lady Jill Biden, the White House, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- a radical left-wing socialist who supports abolishing police despite New York's high crime rate -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Vice President Kamala Harris and Beto O'Rourke, who's running against Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. Of course, Twitter didn't suggest I also follow Abbott, the elected incumbent, as that would be fair and balanced, something the "woke" activists at Twitter care little about.

 

The platform also encouraged me to follow Alexander Vindman, the former director of European Affairs at the National Security Council, whose 2019 Congressional testimony contributed to Trump's impeachment. Again, what on earth does that Trump hater have to do with my interests in finance and the great outdoors?

Twitter also recommended I follow Vermont socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who never met a tax hike he didn't like, Democrat Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Ed Markey, Chris Murphy and Cory Booker, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his spouse, Chasten. Add Reps. Ted Lieu and Katie Porter, Hillary Clinton, far-left "Squad" member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Stacey Abrams and former Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy III.

But that's not all. It also suggested I follow Bill Clinton, his daughter Chelsea and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, currently running for governor, who, in response to the riots and nationwide destruction following the death of George Floyd in 2020, told attendees at a Boston Chamber of Commerce event, "Yes, America is burning, but that's how forests grow."

Twitter didn't suggest I follow any Republican lawmakers in Washington. Not one!
