BECAUSE THEY CAN: Why Twitter Won’t Let People Share Sworn Court Documents Alleging Voter Fraud.
These people put their names and necks on the line in coming forward in our charged political environment. A court will now determine whether their claims are sufficient to merit adjudication.
Twitter, on the other hand, is in no position to do so. Yet after my tweet started circulating widely, suddenly the purported non-publisher stepped in and made its own ruling: “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
It slapped this flag on the tweet. Retweets meet a warning. One can now only share the tweet by adding text responding to it.
The Internet: “Information wants to be free.”
Social Media: “Information is what we say it is.”
