Jack Dorsey Says Project Veritas Has Exposed Too Much
Twitter removed the accounts for Project Veritas and the watchdog’s founder, James O’Keefe, after they released a video with a Facebook official about the social media website’s policies.
In a post on Telegram, the conservative group posted screenshots from its Twitter account, saying, “We’ve temporarily limited some of your account features.”
Twitter said Project Veritas, according to the screenshot, violated its rules “against posting private information.”
A video on YouTube —and is currently still available—included Project Veritas’ Christian Hartsock confronting Facebook executive Guy Rosen outside his home.
The watchdog group also captured Rosen during an internal Facebook call meeting: “We have a system that is able to freeze commenting on threads in cases where our systems are detecting that there may be a thread that has hate speech or violence. … These are all things we’ve built over the past three-four years as part of our investments into the integrity space, our efforts to protect the election.”
In recent months, Twitter and Facebook have come under fire for what critics say is an attempt to censor conservatives or viewpoints the companies deem outside the mainstream. As a result, alternative social media platforms—such as the aforementioned Telegram, Gab, and MeWe—have seen spikes in users in recent weeks.
