Tech giants such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are censoring conservatives by using many different methods from shadowbanning, to overtly blocking content from users.
Twitter is censoring the Drudge Report by marking tweets with a warning that states, “This tweet is not available because it includes potentially sensitive content.”
On Sunday, Chairman Devin Nunes brought attention to Twitter censoring the Drudge Report’s tweets.
People always seek out the truth so if social media giants wants to snuff out conservative voices, other sources will fill the void.
