Twitter is doing everything it can to interfere in the election and help Joe Biden and the Democrats win in two weeks. The social media company was caught red-handed on Wednesday running interference on Republican fundraising efforts but not similar fundraising efforts on behalf of Democratic politicians.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee is calling out Twitter for restricting the retweets of WinRed, the GOP’s fundraising platform. WinRed is the Republican alternative to the Democrats’ fundraising platform, ActBlue. Twitter is running interference on retweets of WinRed’s links to donate to Republican candidates but not links by ActBlue to donate to Democrats.

Twitter has unveiled temporary speech codes to suppress free speech in the runup to the November elections. Starting Oct. 20, users are now prompted to add comments before retweeting posts. Twitter is also adding labels and warnings to tweets it deems misleading or lacking “proper” context. The company has also removed tweets recommended by people who users don’t follow.
