A few weeks after Twitter announced that they had put together a committee in order to stop “bullying” on their social media platform, conservatives are being banned for simply disagreeing with others. Conservatives dominate Twitter, so “progressives” have been planning to silence them for a long time.
And because of that, many are choosing to just leave it altogether.

Just the three above conservative accounts have more than 1,200,000 followers between them, but they are by no means the only ones who are angry about what Twitter is beginning to do.
Here’s Twitter’s announcement from a few weeks back:
That’s why we are announcing the formation of the Twitter Trust & Safety Council, a new and foundational part of our strategy to ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.
As we develop products, policies, and programs, our Trust & Safety Council will help us tap into the expertise and input of organizations at the intersection of these issues more efficiently and quickly.
We have more than 40 organizations and experts from 13 regions joining as inaugural members of the Council. We are thrilled to work with these organizations to ensure that we are enabling everyone, everywhere to express themselves with confidence on Twitter.
The “Trust and Safety Council” sounds like a nice and innocent group – until you find out that it’s stacked with feminists and other liberals.
So it’s no surprise that one of their victims is Stacy McCain, an anti-feminist conservative who had run-ins with one of the feminists on the council.

And that’s why so many conservatives are looking for alternatives to the social media platform – because they see more random banning of conservatives coming.
In a presidential election year! Another big coincidence.
But let’s not get paranoid!! I mean it’s not like the government has looked into banning conservatives on social media before… oh wait…
What do you think? Should all conservatives abandon Twitter for another social media platform? Let us know in the comments section below!
