Liberals knew they would get their Ministry of Truth one way or another!
Whether it’s the federal government and their Disinformation Governance Board or Big Tech’s policies on misinformation, free speech and free association are quickly becoming luxuries of the past.
Amid the total breakdown of the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, the commies over at Twitter are picking up the slack.
The social media company will now implement a new policy that focuses in on the spread of “misinformation’ during times of crisis.
Tweets branded as misinformation during a crisis will be blocked out with a warning notice under the new “Crisis Misinformation Policy,” according to Twitter. Executives revealed “high profile accounts” would be prioritized, a move that seems geared toward Donald Trump’s possible reinstatement.
Twitter will take its cues from so-called “credible sources” who will determine what constitutes as misinformation. These sources include journalists, “conflict monitoring groups”, humanitarian organizations, and more.
We’ve been refining our approach to crisis misinformation, drawing on input from global experts and human rights organizations. As part of this new framework, we’ll start adding warning notices on high visibility misleading Tweets related to the war in Ukraine. pic.twitter.com/fr0NGleJXP

Journalists?! Journalists are the peddlers of all misinformation!
Tweets could receive a warning notice if they include false reporting that “mischaracterizes conditions” of evolving ground conflicts and “false allegations” regarding the use of force and violations of sovereign territory, according to the blog post.
Additionally, tweets that contain “demonstrably false” war crime allegations or inaccurate information on the response of the international community could also be subject to a warning notice, the blog post read.
Fact checks, strong commentary, and anecdotes are exempt from the policy, according to the blog post.
So then who determines what constitutes as “strong commentary” or if a certain tweet is anecdotal? Will blue-check journalists determine that as well?
The impetus of this policy was supposedly the unprecedented amount of propaganda circulating on Twitter as a result of the military conflict in Ukraine Both sides of the conflict have flooded the social media platform with spambots paid to peddle the most insane lies about each other. However, the policy will include other forms of ‘misinformation’ as well.
The war in Ukraine has been a godsend for globalist neoliberals who continue to enact serious infringements on basic rights as a result.
Anything to control the narrative; anything to keep us dependent!
