Twitter has come under fire for silencing conservatives on their platform.
Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO, was even forced to admit that he has left-wing bias.
However, Twitter’s plan to ban this high profile pro-life account just backfired in a big way.
This week, Twitter attempted to escalate their efforts against conservatives.
Twitter banned the account for the pro-life movie, “Unplanned.”
That’s when all hell broke loose.
Many users reported they attempted to “follow” the Unplanned account but were deleted after refreshing the page.
This is more than just a slip up from some Silicon Valley tech engineer.
This is another way of shadow-banning content so that this pro-life account’s posts never show up in the feeds of users who thought they signed up to see their alerts.
Conservative figures reacted with outrage earlier today as Twitter suspended the official account of Unplanned during the pro-life movie’s week of release. The account was restored shortly after its suspension, which Twitter said was related to the ban of a different account.
Unplanned, directed by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon and starring Ashley Bratcher, tells the true-life story of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood director who becomes a pro-life activist after witnessing a fetus struggling for life during an abortion at thirteen weeks gestation.
The film was released in U.S. theaters yesterday with a R-rating, which drew accusations of political bias against the MPAA, which assigns movie age ratings.
Twitter suspended Unplanned‘s official account, @UnplannedMovie earlier today. The social media platform has been widely criticized for alleged discrimination against conservatives, right-wingers.
Conservatives quickly created an uproar and Twitter backed off their censorship.
It’s no secret that Twitter despises the pro-life movement.
And this pro-life movie has sparked a great deal of controversy.
It was given an outrageous “R” rating by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) in order to reduce how many people will see the movie.
K-LOVE, one of the largest Christian music radio stations, is refusing to run ads for the film.
Now Twitter’s attempt to censor “Unplanned” is backfiring as more pro-lifers are following the account than ever would have without the ban.
The pro-life movement has achieved many victories under the Trump administration.
The left realizes this fact and is doing everything they can to rollback the pro-life movement.
This won’t be the last attack we see from Twitter or other social media giants against the pro-life movement.
