Twitter leakers have allegedly described an extreme climate of social justice and celebrity "protection" at Twitter.
Twitter has sprung a leak.
In several exclusive interviews with Breitbart, former employees of the company reveal a company dependent on celebrities, hostile to free speech, and silently fuming at President Trump’s continued dominance on the platform. It corroborates the recent Project Veritas exposé of a platform that is hopelessly biased and committed to censoring non-progressive voices.
Our first source, who, like the others, wishes to remain anonymous, described how the company rapidly abandoned its commitment to free speech after former CEO Dick Costolo was replaced by Jack Dorsey, who the source described as “the definition of a social justice warrior.”
The majority of Twitter’s management, says the source, believes the leftist idea that “hate speech is violence.” They “absolutely” believe in the idea that “abuse scares people off the platform,” and that certain types of speech “silence” other speech.
According to the source, Twitter’s Trust & Safety and Legal departments (distinct from the Trust & Safety Council, which is made up of left-wing advocacy organizations), are “more tolerant of free speech than you might think,” but later adds that social justice warriors like Anita Sarkeesian still probably have direct access to Twitter’s upper management.
Twitter employees are divided into three distinct groups, says the source. Hardline leftists like Dorsey and others, and “ACLU-type” liberals who “still believe in free speech.” Lastly, there are workers who join the company on H1B visas, who the source says are “apolitical.”
The switch from Costolo to Dorsey was highly significant, says the source. Costolo focused on user growth, without taking a position on what non-illegal content was disallowed on the platform, whereas Dorsey has placed a higher emphasis on branded content, like a media company, where the style and tone of content should match the image the company wants to project, which the source describes as “welcoming, fun, and safe.”

Project Veritas’ undercover video captured a twitter employee bragging about ‘shadow banning’ political opinions.
TheFederalist.com reported: Newly released undercover video footage from Project Veritas shows current and former Twitter employees bragging about their ability to censor people on the platform whose political opinions they don’t like.
“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control,” a former Twitter software engineer, Abhinov Vadrevu, says in the video. “The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”
