January 15, 2018 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - We here at PipeLineNews.org have reached the end of our multi-year experiment with the social media platform Twitter.
While at first one could not help but be impressed by the ability to transmit little information packets consisting of 140 characters or less anywhere in the world, Twitter has, along with its almost literal neighbors, Facebook, YouTube, the 800 pound gorilla Google et al., turned even farther left than many thought possible.
What was once a reasonably free environment for public discourse - given the politics of social media giants’ founders - has along with the Democrat party and the vast majority of Western media, gone full-tilt Marxist, now presiding over and nursing what is in effect a secular theocracy based upon the sacralized ideology of collectivism.
It’s unsurprising therefore that PipeLineNews.org’s Twitter account has over the years been suspended so many times that we have lost count, and it now appears that our Net presence there has been shadow banned, which might be a big deal except for the fact that our operation does not depend on that kind of monetization.
Of note, though some seem to think shadow banning is a reasonably new development, its essence - unequal treatment of political speech - has been at the heart of Google [and Silicon Valley] for at least a decade, where even the most innocuous of inquiries involving anything marginally “to the right of center,” returns a spewing of leftist bile while, let’s say doing a search for President Barack Obama, gives one the impression that the former junior Senator from Illinois walks on water, though not the semi-solid variety leaking out of Democrat stronghold Flint, Michigan.
So that’s about all there is to the story, we refuse to feed the hand that suppresses, so color us gone, the account closed afte one final posting
