“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.
“Jack Dorsey this message is for you,” O’Keefe said, taunting the CEO about Monday’s release.
“A few times you may have interacted with some artists, homeless people or businessmen who may or may not have been some of our undercover journalists,” added O’Keefe.
Twitter has become Project Veritas’ latest target, having exposed the social media company’s shadow banning and banning ‘Conservative’ accounts.
As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, O’Keefe’s second undercover video shows Twitter employees talking about how they target pro-Trump accounts by banning them or hiding their content.
Below is a bullet point breakdown of Project Veritas‘ Twitter exposé.
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”
