Twitter ‘Mistakenly’ Blacklists Links to ‘Stop the Steal’ Website Promoting Pro-Trump Events

The Grind:
Twitter temporarily censored links to StopTheSteal.us, a website coordinating grassroots events in defense of election integrity around the country, particularly in swing states where the results of the election are still disputed. After Breitbart News publicized the blacklisting, Twitter reinstated the links and claimed Stop the Steal “mistakenly” was blocked by the platform’s spam filter.

While the link was blocked, anyone attempting to access the link via Twitter was met with a page warning them that the link is “unsafe.”

The Details:
Here is how Twitter described the link:

The link you are trying to access has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially spammy or unsafe, in accordance with Twitter’s URL Policy. This link could fall into any of the below categories:

-malicious links that could steal personal information or harm electronic devices
-spammy links that mislead people or disrupt their experience
-violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm
-certain categories of content that, if posted directly on Twitter, are a violation of the Twitter Rules

This is the same method of censorship that Twitter used against the New York Post to suppress its bombshell Biden-Ukraine stories in the runup to the election. That censorship was later reversed. Read more…
