- President Trump Readies Executive Order To Crack-Down Hard On Social Media Censorship Of Conservatives
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
Update: The Hill reports that National Republican groups announced Thursday that they would halt spending money to advertise on Twitter after the social media site locked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) campaign account this week.
The move from the House and Senate GOP campaign arms, as well as the Republican National Committee (RNC), marks an escalation in the conservative battle against the country’s largest tech companies, which they claim routinely censor right-wing voices. Critics have insisted there is little evidence to substantiate those claims beyond individual anecdotes.
“Twitter’s hostile actions toward Leader McConnell’s campaign are outrageous and we will not tolerate it,” Jesse Hunt, a spokesman with the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), said in a statement to The Hill.
“The NRSC will suspend all spending with Twitter until further notice. We will not spend our resources on a platform that silences conservatives.”
