Social media website Twitter is creating a “Trust & Safety Council” to stop and censor opinions that might upset Islamists and radical feminists such as Anita Sarkeesian.
Twitter released the following statement in a blog post.
“On Twitter, every voice has the power to shape the world. We see this power every day, from activists who use Twitter to mobilize citizens to content creators who use Twitter to shape opinion.
To ensure people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter, we must provide more tools and policies. With hundreds of millions of Tweets sent per day, the volume of content on Twitter is massive, which makes it extraordinarily complex to strike the right balance between fighting abuse and speaking truth to power. It requires a multi-layered approach where each of our 320 million users has a part to play, as do the community of experts working for safety and free expression.
That’s why we are announcing the formation of the Twitter Trust & Safety Council, a new and foundational part of our strategy to ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.”
It's important to note, as InfoWars points out, “the organizations include feminist and other leftist groups, such as Feminist Frequency and GLAAD, and even a Muslim advocacy institute, fueling concerns that the “safety council” will lead to further suppression of anyone speaking out against feminism and radical Islam on Twitter.”
Remember, it wasn't long ago that Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos was un-verified on Twitter for his conservative tweets.
With sites like Facebook and Twitter increasingly supporting censorship, it's easy to see why some users are nervous of this new council.
