BREAKING: Twitter SUSPENDS Project Veritas!

According to James O’Keefe, Twitter has apparently decided that investigative journalism violates their terms of service and has temporarily suspended the account for Project Veritas:



Here’s the attachment to his tweet from Twitter:

That is absolute poppycock. There is no private information in this tweet whatsoever.

Twitter is just using this an excuse to punish O’Keefe’s company in the only way they can. What malarkey.

    1. @agesilaos Ironically, I’m using Patreon to support a couple demonitized YT channels. Sometimes you just can’t win.

    2. How Orwellian…

      The Koch Brothers are teaming up with tech companies, universities and other fellow billionaires to combat online extremism.

      Who will decide what is extreme? According to Harry Reid, the Koch brothers are extremists.

      This is newspeak:

      …Now more than ever is the time to create communities that value diversity, inclusivity and positive change

      …as they discuss how to silence dissent and suppress diversity of thought.

      This is very scary, but I am sure @atomicsentinel will write there is nothing wrong because they aren’t the government. I think @tracy ‘s term “privitized tyranny” is very apt here.

  1. Yet another example of a platform acting as a publisher. Congress: REVOKE THEIR PLATFORM STATUS!

  2. This is retaliation because O’Keefe outed Pinterest the other day.
    Go to Gab James….you will be made most welcome there.

  3. If Twitter had any [email protected], they would suspend President Trump, because he violates every single one of their precious little rules. But since bullies are inherently cowards, they wouldn’t dare.

  4. Twitter is in violation of the rules of the Internet, and should be banned permanently,

  5. This is ridiculous. It’s only temporary but it’s a control mechanism. Either step in line and go PC or they’ll knock you out of the conversation. Is it any wonder why the left is winning the culture war with all the major social networks banning anyone that doesn’t go lockstep with PC and the left?

  6. Not unexpected – Project Veritas has been wildly successful in exposing the monsters of The Left and all the evil they do. It doesn’t make it any less wrong on Twitter’s part though.

    Once again, until the vast majority of the population moves away from these corrupt bastards, this will continue and only get worse.

    1. Worse is people didn’t care and elected him. I’ll be interested to see if that Gov., Lt. Gov., and AG win re-election. Bet they do – at least 2 out of 3.

  7. Here’s why all this matters. Hillary was supposed to win. The Left blames social media for Trump’s victory. It allowed people to hear the other side apart from mainstream media, which is predominately Left leaning. These crackdowns on social media to silence alternative voices is an attempt to ensure something like Trump getting elected will never happen again. That’s why we can’t just say oh well it’s their platform they can do what they want. They are literally trying to sway future elections, and if we just accept it and let them get away with it we get what we deserve.

  8. We only started using this garbage form of “communication” a few years ago. We can well live without it, and chill the current freaky frenzy going on in this country.

    The medium is the message. We don’t need this junk food media diet.

  9. At least these companies are admitting to the world that they don’t like free speech. Probably the reason why they lean towards socialism in their political views too.

  10. How much crap will people take before they stop using all these radical outlets. Why wait for them to do it…

    1. A genocidal maniac starts persecuting and killing minorities he wants to get rid of. They leave when the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe offer the refugees a new home. What message does that send to the next guy who wants to “purify” his country?

      Abuse should never be rewarded.

      They want us to leave, so why help them achieve their goal?

      Worse, with a massive portion of people getting their news from social media, abandoning the field only makes it more likely their viewers/reader will have a very warped worldview.

    2. Why would leftist quit?
      The problem is both sides are entrenching, nothing Trump does including creating laws like the bump stock ban even bothers his supporters and nothing twitter does will bother leftist.

  11. Gotta love the totalitarians at Twitter. The unvarnished truth scares the crap out them. Their users will only believe what they tell them they will believe. Diversity of opinion is not allowed. And certainly no ratting out of other tech companies that employ the same tactics they do. What a loathsome company.

  12. Kind of reminds me of when folks get stopped on a bogus pretext as an excuse to give the folks with authority and in charge time to look for something they can be punished with.

    We support that, right? I can never remember.

  13. correct me if I’m wrong, but when a post made in a PUBLIC forum, isn’t it no longer private? and where is the private info that was supposedly posted? All i see is a synopsis of events that went down, no actual private info!

  14. We all knew this was coming in time for the 2020 presidential election, and these social media companies have shrewdly started to purge conservatives/Christians/etc. before the Democrat primary has had time to heat up, and casual voters on the right start to pay attention. Traditional media won’t make mention of it, and it will be news to sleeping America next summer when it’s too late to offset the damage of the right being left voiceless on these platforms. The Obama administration got away with it in 2012 (IRS targeting) and worse in 2016 (FBI/DOJ/FISA), and these social media GIANTS will too, unless their users collectively force them to remove accounts in significant numbers, or just accept conservative and Christian speech.

  15. Well, the ‘four monopolies’ seems to be getting proven. You have Zuckerberg desperately trying to contact Pelosi over something that was on Youtube. Twitter and Pinterest arm-in-arm. Liberal run liberal operated.

  19. Twitter MUST be held to account and atone for this capricious action.

    Until it costs them something they value dearly, they will continue to do this with impunity. They must either be a Media Company or a Platform. They cannot pretend to be one and benefit from the special protections granted it by The Congress and behave as the other.

  20. Another day, another story about social media monopolies targeting conservatives, silencing conservative voices, and discriminating against conservatives.

    …it’s almost like we’re a minority and it’s socially acceptable to treat us like 5th rate citizens.

  21. Twitter doesn’t want any of their employees following the path of the Pinterest employee. Therefore, get rid of O’Keefe.

  25. They don’t even try to hide it anymore. No more pretense.

    They will pay dearly for this.

    1. @nc-checks-and-balances That’s because they’ve learned only the people they’re not interested in care about what they’re doing, and most people are too lazy to stop using their platform even if they are offended.

      1. @paladin I disagree. I can’t blame “lazy” people. Most people are living their lives, going to work, raising their kids, paying their bills. Most aren’t paying attention to this stuff like we are.

        BUT our legislators are, and it’s way past time for them to remove the protected status that these social media “platforms” have enjoyed. They have violated the terms of agreement by no longer being neural facilitators, and therefore they should no longer qualify as such.

  26. Dont know if it has been said yet, but it is obvious that the tech platforms are purging ALL CONSERVATIVES

  27. “You’re temporarily banned from Twitter for posting truths that embarrass the Dems.” Yes, the Left’s inability to fight back against the truth using their litany of lies is really inconvenient so it must be stopped.

  28. We only started using this garbage form of “communication” a few years ago. We can well live without it, and chill the current freaky frenzy going on in this country.

    The medium is the message. We don’t need this junk food media diet.

  29. Next up, demonetization by Youtube and videos blocked/removed. Right now they’re just trying to figure out how to justify it, but that hasn’t stopped them before. Exposing tech companies for their shenanigans is now hate speech.

    1. @squirrelly Next up? YT has been demonitizing firearms channels for some time now, while all kinds of other objectionable material remains.

        1. @squirrelly They’re in the uncomfortable position of wanting to be rid of the channels that they don’t like and not losing the ad revenue. Not that I feel sorry for them.

  30. This is ridiculous. It’s only temporary but it’s a control mechanism. Either step in line and go PC or they’ll knock you out of the conversation.

        1. @agesilaos Sorry, I’ve used up all of my witty retorts concerning this. Would you like me to recycle one?
