Good! White House Launches Online Tool To Report Vicious Big Tech Censorship Reader 05/17/2019 (Fri) 22:42:32 Id: 804787 [Preview] No. 14714
President Trump has launched a new tool designed to fight back against online censorship by Big Tech companies.

The online tool was launched by the White House on Wednesday and allows Americans to report instances where they have been censored on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. The reports go directly to the Trump administration for review.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the administration announced the tool, declaring it is “fighting for free speech.”

“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!” the White House said in a tweet.

The post from the White House triggered an avalanche of responses from ordinary Americans who reported their own experiences of heavy-handed censorship by Big Tech.

Thousands of people reported they were being actively banned, suspended or “shadowbanned” for holding non-mainstream views.

“My twitter follower number reached just over 6000 followers in 2017.. then the Shadowban, Throttling, and follower purge kicked in,” one person claimed.

“Have been permanently banned from FB due to my supporting President Trump,” another revealed.

Nypost.com reports:

The tool prompts users to answer a series of questions, including what social media platform censored them because of political bias.

“The White House wants to hear from all Americans – regardless of their political leanings – if they have been impacted by bias on social media platforms,” Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said of the program.

The reporting tool was launched as Trump and other Republicans have raised concerns about censorship by social media platforms.

The site's up now as I'm laughing my ass off at it.
"Share your story with President Trump."
Good way to get on a watch list.
I'm sure that fat orange kike would be so sympathetic about how many sites I've been banned from for "anti semitism".

pretty much this. I wonder how many people that submit a report will receive an email a few months later from the (((kushner))) clan asking for e-shekels.
>give us more money goy, we totally care about your free speech rights and we PROMISE we'll do something this time

I'm pretty sure only normies who use something like Facebook are going to cry to the government about being banned, but you are right, it could be used as a massive honeypot too. I like them doing this though, because it does help expose the censorship and desperation of these big tech companies (most of them subsidized by US taxpayers I might add).
