On Monday, I wrote about how Twitter didn’t appear to have an issue with a Taliban spokesperson sending out operational tweets about how the group that has a historical past of beating and killing girls (like July 12 when, as CNN says, the Taliban murdered a girl for not cooking for fighters) and has but to dam accounts whereas President Trump stays banned.
Now comes phrase straight from the social media app that the Taliban can preserve tweeting away with the fluffy we imply no hurt, particularly to girls public relations nonsense that’s clearly cowl for what the bastards will finally do to girls and kids. The Washington Post is fawning over how intelligent the Taliban has been with its social media sport.
Wednesday, when reached by Mediaite, Twitter flat out wouldn’t say whether or not it will ban the Taliban from utilizing the platform. The firm stated it will “continue to proactively enforce” guidelines towards “glorification of violence, platform manipulation and spam.”
Colorado Rep. Doug Lamborn (R.) despatched a letter Tuesday to the tech firm asking why Twitter restricts President Trump from utilizing the platform whereas the Taliban strikes alongside freely with its we’re right here to supply safety theme.
“It is clear that Twitter has political bias in its algorithms and a troubling double standard,” Lamborn wrote. “I look forward to a prompt reply on why a former United States President is banned while two Taliban spokesmen are allowed to remain.”
Breaking 🚨 I despatched a letter to @Jack over @Twitter‘s blatant speech bias & double requirements. Why does Twitter enable two Taliban spokesmen to have a platform however restricts the First Amendment Rights of former President Trump? It’s previous time to carry #BigTech accountable. #Taliban pic.twitter.com/6tylgmCBTz

Twitter’s stance has been that Trump violated its Glorification of Violence coverage with the next two tweets on Jan. 8:
- “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”
- “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”
Facebook has decided that the Taliban is not going to function on its platform. “The Taliban is sanctioned as a terrorist organization under US law and we have banned them from our services under our Dangerous Organization policies,” a Facebook spokesperson instructed CNBC, including that the Taliban had been banned for a number of years.
What’s clear is that so long as the Taliban simply retains praising its personal tactical victories, retains saying the way it doesn’t imply any hurt to girls and stays the course, the terrorist group can simply carry on going with its day-to-day tweeting operation.
