Twitter CEO Elon Musk on Friday announced that the Big Tech platform will resume shadowbanning independent media on the platform and will promote “trusted” mainstream media outlets instead.
Quoting Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, Musk declared that Twitter’s new policy is “freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.”
“New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach,” Musk declared. “Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet.”
“Note, this applies just to the individual tweet, not the whole account,” he added.
“Freedom of speech does not mean freedom of reach” is a meme originally published by ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt.
Informationliberation.com reports: Freedom of speech is freedom of reach.
You don’t have freedom of speech if you’re not allowed to speak in the public square.
Shadow banning and “deboosting” speech deemed “hate” is the equivalent of locking someone trying to speak out at a town square in a soundproof box and then telling them they have “free speech” within the box.
Just because “speech” and “reach” rhyme does not make it sound logic.
Of course, Greenblatt gave Musk no credit for echoing their BS and instead whined about how he’s not doing enough to censor “antisemitic sentiment” on Twitter.
