Um… Twitter Just Decried ‘Internet Shutdowns’ Happening In Uganda
Twitter literally just posted a few tweets decrying what they say is ‘internet shutdowns’ happening in Uganda:
Ahead of the Ugandan election, we're hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps.— Twitter Public Policy (@Policy) January 12, 2021
We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet.
Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.#UgandaDecides2021 #KeepItOn https://t.co/Q2SJfsFUiD— Twitter Public Policy (@Policy) January 12, 2021
Twitter strongly condemns internet shutdowns during this Ugandan election. Um, seriously? They were the ones who shut down the New York Post during OUR election. They blocked the account of the New York post for weeks after they published a legitimate article on Hunter Biden’s laptop, and they blocked the story itself on their platform because they were worried it would hurt Joe Biden.
And of course, more recently, they completely blocked the President of the United States from having a voice after blaming him for inciting the Capitol riot. And they are silencing many more MAGAs on the platform, using the riot as an excuse.
ot to mention what’s going on with Parler right now. Has Twitter spoken out against Amazon shutting down their competition? Nope.
Twitter has zero credibility when it comes to censorship because they are one of the worst offenders.
