If you’ve been paying attention thus far, you won’t be surprised that Big Tech has begun unleashing a major crackdown on Donald Trump’s political influence ahead of the midterm elections.
All available polling indicates that Democrats are in for a historic smackdown, and leaders are desperate to mitigate their losses in any possible way.
Big Tech is merely one aspect of the Democrat’s plan for total control.
Google has not approved Truth Social’s Android app for distribution because of insufficient content moderation.
The Trump-affiliated social network was expected to get an Android release this week, according to Truth Social CEO Devin Nunes. However, Google now claims that it has not approved the app’s release due to concerns about its content moderation practices.
“On Aug. 19, we notified Truth Social of several violations of standard policies in their current app submission and reiterated that having effective systems for moderating user-generated content is a condition of our terms of service for any app to go live on Google Play,” Google told Axios.
“TMTG has continuously worked in good faith with Google to ensure that the Truth Social Android App complies with Google’s policies without compromising our promise to be a haven for free speech,” the platform said in a press statement responding to Google’s claims.
The company argued that several of its competitors, including Facebook and Twitter, were left on the store “despite rampantly violating Google’s prohibition on sexual content and other policies, whereas Truth Social has zero tolerance for sexually explicit content.”
Content moderation on Truth Social has been an issue in the past. The House Committee on Oversight and Reform filed a letter on Aug. 19, requesting information about the company’s content moderation practices, an inquiry it also made to other social networks, such as TikTok, Facebook, and Parler.
Meanwhile, the entire point of Truth Social is to allow users to speak freely regardless of political bias or ideological affiliation. By forcing the platform to tighten moderation enforcement would destroy the meaning of Truth itself!
Former President Donald Trump has maintained that Truth Social is going fine despite endless liberal media reports of the platform’s failure.
“Actually, many of the big guns in Washington, D.C., are fighting to stop the TRUTH but, they won’t be successful,” Trump wrote.
“They are going after the outside financial company, and virtually anybody that walks and breaths, but that won’t do it. They said it is doing worse since the Raid, but actually it is doing MUCH better, up more than 550%. We all love TRUTH!!!”
The Deep State will do anything in its power (and they have a lot of power) to ensure that Donald Trump comes nowhere near the White House ever again. If that means pressuring Big Tech to destroy his online influence, so be it.
