Twitter Files Reveals Troubling Details of How Company Blacklisted Libs of TikTok

A new installment of the Twitter Files investigation has revealed that the popular Libs of TikTok account was one of the conservative voices targeted by the company’s former censorship queen, Vijaya Gadde, and Trump-hating leftist Yoel Roth, who had the account placed on a “Trends Blacklist.” The new information paints a troubling picture of how Twitter blacklisted conservatives even while admitting that Libs of TikTok had “not directly engaged in behavior violative of the Hateful Conduct policy.”

Former Twitter Employees Claim Polls Are Major Targets for Bots

Elon Musk has made a number of decisions about the Twitter platform via polls posted on his profile, but ex-employees are warning that Twitter polls are a major target for bots and can be easily manipulated. Censor-happy Yoel Roth said, “Polls are more prone to manipulation than almost anything else.” Notably, Roth and the thousands of Twitter employees who have been laid off didn’t see to care much about the massive number of bots on Twitter until after Musk took over.
