Here We Go Again! Twitter Announces Plan to ‘Protect’ November Midterm Elections

By Breitbart. Far-left Twitter has declared it will “protect” the midterm elections with a range of policies designed to suppress what the company considers “misinformation,” and deliver Twitter-curated news to users.

2020 was the first American election in which Big Tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google had “election integrity” policies — and they resulted in one of the most consequential stories of that cycle, the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings, being suppressed just weeks before the election.

This tracks with what Breitbart News has predicted, which is that Big Tech companies will do everything they can to prevent the widely-predicted Republican sweep in November from taking place.

Twitter was one of the companies that suppressed that story in the name of fighting “misinformation” — now it plans to activate similar policies ahead of the midterms.

Twitter also says they will roll out “state-specific event hubs,” which will allow the platform to feed handpicked information to users based on their state and local races. It will also roll out a “dedicated explore tab” for the U.S. elections containing news stories curated by Twitter. (Read more from “Here We Go Again!

Twitter Rolls Out Election Misinformation Rules Ahead of US Midterms

By New York Post. . .The San Francisco-based tech giant said it will apply its “civic integrity policy” to the Nov. 8 midterm elections, in which all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives as well as a third of the Senate will be up for grabs.

The stated goal of the policy, which was first introduced in 2018, is to “elevate credible information” and “help keep you safe on Twitter.”

“The mission of our civic integrity work is to protect the conversation on Twitter during elections or other civic processes,” according to Twitter.

Twitter will offer users “prebunks” — or prompts on the home screen that help guide people to accurate information. It will also apply labels to tweets that it deems to be misleading. . .

Twitter, Facebook and other tech sites banned then-President Donald Trump from their platforms after his supporters ransacked the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. (Read more from “Twitter Rolls Out Election Misinformation Rules Ahead of US Midterms” HERE)
