I think they deleted Trump's twitter account for a few hours before putting it back before. The things they talked about and what they can and will do. :/

What other platforms you got beside Twitter that don't use shady practice like this ?

But there's a lot less to the two videos Project Veritas released this week than meets the eye. For example, O'Keefe has repeatedly highlighted Twitter engineer Steven Pierre's comment that Twitter was working on software to "ban a way of talking." The strong implication is that the "way of talking" Pierre wants to ban is conservative political speech. But if you actually watch the full video, that's clearly not what Pierre meant.

"Whether it's positive or negative doesn't look for content," he said. "It's more like if somebody's being aggressive or not. Somebody's just cursing at somebody."

In other words, Pierre was describing a project to filter out trolling and harassment. O'Keefe could have made this clear—or just left that clip on the cutting room floor. But O'Keefe is a political activist who often casts the targets of his investigations in the worst possible light—even if he has to use smoke and mirrors to do it.


This has been debunked already.


Clay Haynes: "There's a reason why we have a subpoena process"

The first Project Veritas video focused on Clay Haynes, a senior network engineer at Twitter. The headline on that video focuses on Haynes saying that "we're more than happy to help the Department of Justice in their little investigation" against Donald Trump by turning over direct messages and other private information.

But the tape shows that when Haynes is urged to look at the private messages of Donald Trump and his son Donald Jr., Haynes laughs nervously and says, "We have a subpoena process for that very reason." In other words, Haynes's comments are entirely consistent with Twitter's official policy: that it only discloses private information about its users if it receives a court order to do so.


If the DOJ comes to them with a subpoena they will turn over that information.

At this point, is anybody surprised that O'Keefe is trying to deliberately mislead people by taking select quotes out of context to push as propaganda?

Ugh, Project Veritas. I haven't heard anything about them since that failed sting on the Washington Post backfired on them a month or two ago.

So Twitter is moderating their platform. ...Wow?
I'm not a social media person so maybe I just don't get the big reveal here but this seems pretty straightforward to me if you don't want your platform to devolve into idiots harrassing eachother.

Those animal groups use similar hidden camera method. It works and it can get things done.

This is funny.. Things that being said in a private meeting are being shared like it was nothing but when you got hidden videos of questionable practice from tech companies :/ it's illegal ? I guess people will choose what they want to believe and what is legal or what credible vs what isn't ?

There was no such thing as rigging the election in Hillary's favor until some lady from CNN spilled the beans in her new book It's not like it's anything new. I guess this is how it is with politics.

misdemeanor charges ? that is serious! I'm sure Hillary is such an outstanding candidate that they threw Bernie under the bus while they were trying to drag her to the finishing line what happened? I like the double standards.

Wait! they deleted trump's account ? i doubt it! They like the attention and traffic he is bringing to their site. This is why they are doing shadow banning people. Keep them active but block them behind the scene.

This is hilarious I created a twitter account right after posting the post above. They banned me after 5 minutes or so after creating the account I didn't post a single tweet. I was trying to add a profile picture at the time......

facebook is much more harsh when it comes to "shadow ban" aka banning anyone they deem a threat to what they deem important. aka the number of conservatives blocked on facebook and twitter is outstanding, but the number of porn accounts roam freely. not to mention if you don't give enough details so they can data mine (facebook) they will cancel/block/lock your account, how nice of them. as for twitter, this isn't new, this has been going on since obama stirred in office, it's finally came to light of their (twitter) wrong doings.

Do you really need to spin this into something it isn't?

They've been combating all the spamming and botting that people do with Twitter. Putting some fake phone number in, yeah, that appears to be a bad thing to do. Who could have figured?

It didn't ask for a phone number when i registered. Just email, name -- and then pick username. They sent me a confirmation email and then I was in.

I was setting the interests and profile pictures etc... I looks like they wanted me to verify the Captcha and provide a phone number. They let me into my own account without verifying captcha or providing a phone number before was a mistake then ?
