Dangerous censorship

Updated 1/17/2022 8:19 PM

Marjorie Taylor Greene, a conservative United States congresswoman, was banned from tech giant Twitter for quoting statistics from the U.S. government database Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Let me repeat that: a United States congresswoman was banned because she quoted data from the U.S. government.

As reported in the Daily Herald, Twitter uses artificial intelligence to identify post that are misleading enough to harm people. The only problem is that the Twitter eldoes not like adverse government data, especially that data being exposed by a conservative Congresswoman.


Let that sink in for a moment. Regardless of your political beliefs, this censorship is dangerous and if unchecked, will lead to degradation of your First Amendment rights.
