Live Action, a leading pro-life organization, has revealed that Twitter has rejected their recent round of promoted content because it’s too “inflammatory.” Writing an op-ed for the USA Today, Live Action founder Lila Rose detailed how dangerous a ruling like this is and how Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has repeatedly claimed that his company does not engage in behavior like this when banning content.
Twitter banned @LiveAction & my account from all ads. When we asked why, @Twitter said we could resume ads, only if we deleted the following content from our Twitter AND website:— Lila Rose (@LilaGraceRose) June 4, 2019
-Anything about abortion procedures
-Investigations of Planned Parenthood
-All ultrasound images
“Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has repeatedly told the news media that Twitter doesn’t ban content based on users’ viewpoints.
Earlier this month, at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing, members of Congress tested him on that assertion and asked several times whether Twitter engaged in suppressing more conservative voices. Each time, Dorsey replied no.
Even in his written statement to the committee, he said, “The purpose of Twitter is to serve the public conversation, and we do not make value judgments on personal beliefs.”
Yet for years, Twitter has blocked one of the most prominent pro-life organizations online from advertising our pro-life message on the platform. So I can tell you from experience, Jack Dorsey’s statements are not the truth.”
Rose is spot on. By banning her group from using promoted content to distribute their message because they view it as “inflammatory”, they are in fact making value judgments on personal beliefs. This isn’t surprising to conservatives and Trump supporters who have been consistently targeted by Twitter for account suspension and even deletion for no reason.
If you have not watched the Joe Rogan Experience episode with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and free-speech proponent Tim Pool, you need to do that right now. Pool, a self-described centrist, destroys Twitter for their deceptive censorship campaign against Trump supporters and conservative content.
Explanations are rarely given, so that does separate Rose’s case from most others, however it doesn’t make Twitter’s dishonesty or value judgment on content from her pro-life organization any less worrying.
