Time and time again we have seen Twitter exploit immunity to silence the voices of those with whom Silicon Valley billionaires disagree. But yesterday the company stooped to a new political low, using its ubiquitous platform to target the President of the United States and push Democratic talking points - proving once again it's anything but impartial.
Let's get the facts straight. Federalizing elections by mandating mail-in voting - as Democrats are pushing to do - is a direct invitation for ballot harvesting and voter fraud. Twitter's refusal to acknowledge that fact and their blatant attempts to discredit those who do is shameful and another example of why Americans don't trust Big Tech.
I have long said that Big Tech is the single biggest threat facing our democracy. We know in 2016 social media companies had an outsized role in influencing our presidential election. It is terrifying that a handful of Silicon Valley billionaires have no accountability and the ability with the click of a mouse to censor, to deceive, and to manipulate votes - all without consequence. With another presidential election months away, we need to take action now to curtail that influence, protect free speech, and preserve the integrity of our elections.
