Twitter Cheating Update

Twitter made a big blunder today.  They “temporarily restricted” General Flynn’s attorney for “Unusual activity.”

When Twitter does this, they empty to account’s “Following” list. Everyone whom she was following has now lost a follower.

Twitter has been systematically removing my followers using this mechanism. Over the past nine days, I have about 700 new followers, but my follower count is down. Twitter is systematically removing followers at a rate of about 82 per day, and they do this by restricting conservatives accounts and emptying their “Following lists.”

      How would I fight against progressives from the echo chamber of parler?

      • John Ellwood says:

        “Progressives” have closed minds. Twitter is evil.

      • Barton Robinett says:

        Precisely. Groupthink is why it’s so difficult to break the lock of fake news now, it’s pointless to “preach to the choir “.

        Hi Tony,

        You might find these interesting, if you have not seen them before. It definitely explains why the Left wants to shut the economy down.

        After you are done with those, you will clearly see what you are up against: it is like trying to talk interior decorating with a person who is color blind and only talks to other color blind people. (hence the echo chamber)

        The moral roots of liberals and conservatives – Jonathan Haidt

        “If you think that half of America votes Republican because they are blinded in this way, then my message to you is that you are trapped in a moral matrix… and by the matrix, I mean literally the Matrix in the movie The Matrix… “

        And as Haidt says, “If you have a one foundation system of morality, you will go around committing 5 types of sacrilege. “ (shutting down the economy would be one of them)

        Jonathan Haidt lecture on morality at Stanford

        After Haidt discovered all of that, as he was a progressive himself, he moved to the “center”.

        The Science Explaining Why Liberals and Conservatives Can’t Understand Each Other

        But Haidt’s second major discovery is far more consequential: the concept of “the conservative advantage.” Based on painstaking cross-cultural social-psychological experimentation, Haidt establishes that the moral foundations of liberals and conservatives are not just different, they are dramatically unequal.

        The liberal moral matrix rests essentially entirely on the left-most foundations; the conservative moral foundation—though slanted to the right—rests upon all six.

        This is a stunning finding with enormous implications. The first is that conservatives can relate to the moral thinking of liberals, but the converse is not true at all. Haidt, who is liberal himself, elegantly explains how and why conservatives will view liberals as merely misguided while liberals tend to view conservatives as incomprehensible, insane, immoral, etc.

        “The results were clear and consistent,” remarks Haidt. “In all analyses, conservatives were more accurate than liberals.”

        Asked to think the way a liberal thinks, conservatives answered moral questions just as the liberal would answer them, but liberal students were unable to do the reverse.

        Rather, they seemed to put moral ideas into the mouths of conservatives that they don’t hold.

        To put it bluntly, Haidt and his colleagues found that progressives don’t understand conservatives the way conservatives understand progressives.

        This he calls the ‘conservative advantage,’ and it goes a long way in explaining the different ways each side deals with opinions unlike their own.

        People get angry at what they don’t understand, and an all-progressive education ensures that they don’t understand.

        That’s the downside of sites like Gab and Parler and other similar conservative Twitter-like sites. They’re mostly echo chambers for conservatives, with the occasional liberal troll trying to stir $h*t up. They are almost like containment sites for all those “deplorables”.

    Twitter has been ramping up their suspension activities against Conservative voices.

    On April 1st I had over 20.2K followers:

    Then I lost a net of:

    – 70 In April

    – 145 in May

    – 221 in June

    In looking at those unfollowers they are most accounts that have been “zeroed” out…

  3. Disillusioned says:

    Plenty of people are watching. She has gained 5200 followers since your screenshot of her page this morning, climbing by 100 every couple minutes.

    • Disillusioned says:

      I just checked Ms. Powell’s Twitter account this evening, and in a little over 24 hours, her Twitter account is closing in on 20,000 NEW followers since Tony’s screenshot of her Twitter page yesterday of 380K followers. As of this post, Ms. Powell’s followers are 398.7K.

  4. Tom B. says:

    Just followed you on Parler… Don’t use Twitter (though I do follow some of it on the ‘Twitchy.com’ site).

    Keep up the good work.

  5. Tom B. says:

    Just followed you on Parler. Don’t use Twitter, though I do follow it some on twitchy.com

  6. David Scott says:

    Why doesn’t a rich conservative start an alternative to Twitter?

  7. stephan says:

    Twitter should be history

    Unusual activity mean Obozo appointed judge has been smacked down by a higher court and they don’t want that getting out. It might make some actually read what illegal activity Sullivan has been trying on and make them think that perhaps Obama really is the root cause of this trouble.
