On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) talks about Twitter trying to fact-check President Trump’s tweets and compares the President’s dealings with Twitter with his own “shadowbanning” experience with the social media platform.
“I think it will backfire. We have this wonderful thing called the First Amendment. Let’s allow speech to happen. And your right to speak in a political fashion is what the Founders had most in mind when they established that Bill of Rights and specifically that First Amendment. So this is scary what they did, what they did us two summers ago, they shadowbanned Gaetz, Meadows, Nunes and Jordan and of course Jack Dorsey and Twitter said this wasn’t intentional. There are 535 members, no one else got shadowbanned, only the four guys who happen to be involved in trying to get to the bottom of the Trump/Russia investigation. Only those four were shadowbanned, and Jack Dorsey said this wasn’t intentional, this was a glitch in our algorithm. And I said, I was being interviewed, I said a glitch in our algorithm? What they put the algorithm, the names Gaetz, Meadows, Nunes and Jordan? Now we’re going to censor the president and put some down on some marker or icon by the President’s tweets. So it’s ridiculous. And I don’t think the American people are going to go to stand for it.”
