Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe released a brand new video exposing Twitter’s practice of banning users due to pressure from foreign governments.
On January 1st, Conrado Miranda, a former senior software engineer at Twitter admitted to Project Veritas that the social media giant routinely bars users at the behest of the Chinese government.

Miranda also revealed the Chinese government will hack Twitter if the social media company fails to comply with its request to ban an account.
After the video’s release, O’Keefe tweeted, “This video begs the question – is
@Twitter even an American company? Do they really hold American ideals? Or is the idea of “free speech” just a marketing tool for them to harvest your data? @jack himself must respond, and take steps to increase Twitter’s transparency.”
Despite being available in both Hong Kong and Taiwan, Twitter is blocked in mainland China.
Executive Kathy Chen was hired as Twitter’s Head of China in April 2016, yet exited the company just 8 months later.
“Now that the Twitter APAC team is working directly with Chinese advertisers, this is the right time for me to leave the company,” tweeted Chen.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe issued a second warning to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over the weekend. The undercover journalist teased footage of the social media executive grabbing coffee at San Francisco hot-spot, Blue Bottle Coffee.
“Monday morning we are releasing more shocking undercover video from Twitter engineers exposing how they take your private information, share it, exploit it and abuse it,” O’Keefe said.
As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, the undercover footage revealed Twitter pays hundreds of employees to view everything you post in private messages including “sex messages” and nude photos.
