Twitter was in the bag for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign, and now there’s proof. How exactly? They hid key pieces of information that painted Hillary negatively in order to see Donald Trump lose.
From Daily Caller:
Twitter Buried #DNCLeak, #PodestaEmails Tweets In Last Two Months Of Campaign
Twitter buried significant portions of tweets related to hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in the last two months of the 2016 presidential campaign.
Twitter’s systems hid 48 percent of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets using #PodestaEmails, Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett said in his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
“Approximately one quarter (25%) of [#PodestaEmails tweets] received internal tags from our automation detection systems that hid them from searches,” Edgett said.
He added that “our systems detected and hid just under half (48%) of the Tweets relating to variants of another notable hashtag, #DNCLeak, which concerned the disclosure of leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.”
Well, that’s kind of a big deal, isn’t it? Shame on Twitter for keeping Americans in the dark.
