I cannot even keep up with all of the news that is coming out about the Biden administration’s collusion with Twitter in order to interfere with the 2020 election. Last week, I wrote about part one and part two of the Twitter dumps. In this post, I’ll have to cover two in order to catch up: 3) federal departments collusion with Twitter, and 4) the banning of Donald Trump by Twitter.
Here’s part 3 from Daily Wire:
The third installment of the so-called “Twitter Files” released Friday night showed that federal agencies were in contact with Twitter during the 2020 presidential election and were involved in censoring content on the platform.
[…]Then-Twitter Policy Director Nick Pickles appeared to admit that the platform was meeting officials from the FBI and DHS regarding some of the actions that it was taking.
Yoel Roth, then-Twitter Global Head for Trust & Safety, confirmed in an internal message that he was meeting with the FBI, DHS, and Director of National Intelligence about election security and about the Hunter Biden laptop story. The DHS, FBI, and DOJ said during the election that the laptop story was not disinformation, which the former Director of National Intelligence confirmed to The Daily Wire on Friday night.
We’ll come back to Yoel Roth in a minute, but first let’s see what was in part 4 of the “Twitter Files”, reported in the Daily Wire:
The fourth installment of “The Twitter Files” released over the weekend revealed new information about the actions that led up to the platform banning former President Donald Trump following the January 6, 2021, riot in the nation’s capital.
[…]Shellenberger… noted tweets from former Twitter Global Lead of Trust & Safety Yoel Roth that were derogatory towards conservatives, which has been public knowledge for years and has previously been reported on.
[…]The next tweet showed that Roth told a senior executive Dorsey intended for Trump to be banned for “*ANY* policy violation” after the 12-hour suspension was lifted on his account. Roth said that due to the unique circumstances of everything that was happening that Twitter was, in Trump’s case, dropping its “public interest” policy which previously let Trump stay on the platform despite violations because what Trump had to say was deemed to be relevant to public policy. In essence, Twitter altered its processes and rules in real-time to adapt to the situation the company was dealing with.
They changed their policies just for the Republican candidate for president, just before the 2020 election.
Why was Yoel Roth so filled with hatred for conservatives? What issue was driving him to collude with the Biden administration in order to use Twitter to help the Democrat party?
Here is a little more about his “education”:
During the fall semester, Yoel Roth ’11 returned to campus to deliver a lecture titled “Swiping Left: Identity, Preference, and the Politics of Online Dating.” In the lecture, Roth gives an overview of the development of online dating sites and explores notions of privacy and self-expression with a particular focus on the case studies of Tinder and Grindr.
Roth earned his B.A. from Swarthmore College with honors in political science. He received his Ph.D. from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. His research focuses on the privacy and self-expression choices of gay men using geosocial networking services like Grindr. He currently works on the Trust & Safety team at Twitter, developing policies and products to promote the privacy and safety of Twitter users worldwide.
Grindr, as you may know, is the hook-up app primarily used by gay men. I didn’t know you could do a PhD in gay hook-up apps. I had to write code in order to earn my graduate degree in computer science.
Yoel Roth is not known for his skills in computer science, which makes me wonder why he works for Twitter?
According to his LinkedIn, Roth has a bachelor’s degree in film and media studies and political science from Swarthmore College… Roth has full professional proficiency in English and Hebrew, according to his LinkedIn page.
Film Studies and political science.
Here is Elon Musk talking about Yoel’s PhD thesis:
You might remember that Twitter also banned a lot of accounts that were critical of “grooming”, including Gay Against Groomers, which is an excellent association of gay people who are extremely opposed to grooming children for sex with adults. But Twitter banned them. Tweeting about grooming got you an immediate ban. I think they also made the #groomer hashtag illegal. Why so much hostility to people who oppose grooming children for sex, Yoel Roth?
There is a nice thread of his previous tweets here, if you want to understand him better.
Here is something interesting from Heavy.com:
Roth is married. He wrote, “This reminds me of the time both of my husband’s boots suffered cascading failures 2 days into a hiking trip in a remote part of Japan. Turns out Japanese super-glue is extremely effective.”
Roth is male, and he has a husband. Not a wife.
One thought on “Why was Twitter so focused on banning people who opposed sexualizing children?”
I always like to word it to people with the phrase.
” if I was a conspiracy theorists I would wonder if the lack of interest in the Epstein case along with Twitter and kids were a related pattern to cover up. I don’t know for sure but I couldn’t make a logical arguement against that idea”
Then I leave it there and they don’t yell at me because I didn’t say I beleive it only I can’t make a case against that kind do idea for example. So it places a logical arguement in their hands
Luckily where I live people are sane and don’t see others as the enemy that often so an occasional far leftist has to be careful in how they talk around others
