‘This is election interference’: Conservatives demand hearings and desire Elon Musk to uncover the GOP candidates who were ‘shadow banned’ before polls
GOP desires to know if the suppression associated with conservatives covered candidates
Republicans are challenging hearings on Twitter and more information on whether GOP applicants were blacklisted before polls, after the second release associated with internal documents showed traditional accounts were suspended or even suppressed despite not violating any policies.
The calls for a lot more accountability come as Elon Musk responded ‘ yes’ when a user asked him in the event that any political candidates had been ‘ subject to shadowbanning while they were running for workplace or seeking re-election? ‘
Republican Senator Roger Wicker has called for the Committee on Business, Science, and Transportation to keep a hearing into censorship from Big Tech and GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde has called it ‘ election interference’.
The release of the second tranche of Tweets files upon Thursday night showed the social media giants ‘ kept a secret blacklist of topics and accounts’ to prevent them from trending. Conservatives were deliberately downplayed in a scheme critics called ‘ Soviet-style bulls***’ .
Conservative commentators, including Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk, were deliberately put on a ‘ search blacklist’ in Bongino’s case or tabbed ‘ do not amplify, ‘ in the case of Kirk.
But there are now calls to release more files that could unearth similar methods used on Republicans seeking office.
