Twitter is now censoring the phrase "illegal alien"

The executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is claiming that Twitter has blocked them from promoting a tweet that included the words "illegal aliens."



From cis.org


Yesterday Twitter rejected four Center for Immigration Studies tweets for use in the Center's Twitter Ads campaign, alleging hateful content. (Several others were approved.) All four tweets use the statutory phrases "illegal alien" or "criminal alien", and all of the tweets referenced law enforcement, either at the border or in the interior. One of the tweets contained a powerful Daily Caller video showing illegal aliens in camouflage carrying large backpacks across the border unimpeded.

Twitter's only response to an inquiry about why promotion of the tweets was rejected: "We've reviewed your tweets and confirmed that it is ineligible to participate in the Twitter Ads program at this time based on our Hateful Content policy. Violating content includes, but is not limited to, that which is hate speech or advocacy against a protected group."

rganizations of all kinds pay Twitter to promote specific tweets in order to drive traffic to an organization's website. Twitter advertises that the ads "can get you more likes, amplify your message, and get more people talking about the things that matter to you most - your cause, project, business, or brand." This is exactly why the Center selected these specific tweets to be placed as ads.

At a July congressional hearing on social media filtering practices, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte said that social media platforms need to “do a better job explaining how they make decisions to filter content and the rationale for why they do so."

We agree.

You judge: Do these tweets illustrate "hateful content", or is Twitter filtering content with a political bias?

My first job out of High School was at St Paul and over the next 5 years Iearned so very much. Seeing the hospital torn down tears a small piece of my heart out. The Daughters of Charity and the doctors and staff of St Paul Hospital will always be with me ...➤

Free speech? That's a joke.

Only if its approved by the twatter/facebook,/google censors.

Where's the federal government when they are needed? They run around getting in people business but here are blatant violations of the Constitution and they are asleep at the wheel.

Congress should be dissolved due to it being a non-functioning entity that is waisting tax payer money. We can get the same entertainment down at the Elementary School and its a lot cheaper.
