In the first thread of The Twitter Files, we explored the various ways in which Twitter has been used to censor, manipulate, and deplatform individuals and groups, and the broader implications of these actions for society. In Thread 2, titled “THE TWITTER FILES PART TWO. TWITTER’S SECRET BLACKLISTS,” the author delves deeper into the issue of censorship on the social media platform and exposes the existence of secret blacklists used to suppress certain voices and viewpoints.
Through a series of tweets and accompanying documents, the author presents evidence of the existence of these blacklists and the ways in which they have been used to target individuals and groups, including political leaders, activists, and ordinary users. The thread also examines the implications of these blacklists for free speech and democracy, and raises important questions about the transparency and accountability of social media companies.
As you read through this thread and the subsequent threads in The Twitter Files, you will be struck by the depth and nuance of the analysis and the thought-provoking insights that are shared. Whether you are a journalist, a researcher, or simply a concerned citizen, I encourage you to read through the entire series of threads to form your own conclusions about the issues raised.
