Republicans renew complaints Twitter stifles president, conservatives

TWTR

FILE PHOTO: The Twitter logo is displayed on a screen on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York City, U.S., September 28, 2016. (Reuters) - Two U.S. Republican lawmakers accused Twitter on Wednesday of being biased against conservatives and demanded information about the social media platform's reactions to two tweets by President Donald Trump. "Twitter’s discrimination against conservative voices is extremely alarming. These actions give rise to concerns that the company is systematically engaged in the disparate treatment of political speech and is deceiving users of the platform by not uniformly applying its terms of service," they wrote. They also objected to Twitter's treatment of a Trump tweet saying he would use "serious force" to keep protesters from creating an autonomous zone in Washington, D.C. Twitter said the tweet violated a policy against abusive behavior but did not take it down.

How Twitter is shifting the power balance from companies to their employees

TWTR FB

The conflict began with an investigation into the travel company Away in The Verge for which I served as an early editor; that story was written by Zoe Schiffer, my partner in bringing this newsletter to you every week; and the most recent controversy started after my friend Taylor Lorenz called attention to some comments that Korey, Away’s CEO and the subject of the original investigation, had made on Instagram. From a distance, it seemed like little more than the latest salvo in a conflict between journalists and Silicon Valley that has escalatedsignificantly this year. But what if you take the whole discussion of “tech versus journalism” and reframe it as “managers versus employees”? This trend has only accelerated since the Black Lives Matters protests swept the nation last month — which, among other things, led to the first-ever virtual Facebook walkout a few weeks later. Until recently it was relatively unusual for employees to contact journalists directly with complaints about their workplaces — much less broadcast them on Twitter with no warning. But the Google walkout — which took place as much on Twitter as it did outside the company’s offices — showed workers that their stories would find a sympathetic audience on social networks. These recent pieces really do feel like hits, and the managerial class has no obvious way to hit back in a way that won’t harm its own reputation. And so it shouldn’t be surprising, when a prominent reporter like Lorenz calls attention to posts like Korey’s, the managerial class rises to Korey’s defense. When CEOs can be held accountable not just for their working conditions but for social media defenses of their work, that represents a threat to the entire managerial tribe. And that explains how venture capitalists, who have millions of dollars at their disposal and could comfortably retire without ever participating in a single Twitter fight, have nonetheless come to see themselves as the underdogs in this situation.

Redcar MP Jacob Young was attempting to highlight the fact that hairdressers and other businesses were open after lockdown restrictions were lifted on Saturday. Twitter users along with local politicians were quick to criticise Mr Young - pointing out the area had suffered under Tory austerity measures, which have seen an estimated 60p in the pound cut from council budgets with thousands of job cuts on Teesside, a big reduction in police officers and firefighters, and huge welfare reforms. He added: “My constituency is full of amazing people and I’m proud to be an MP here for a party that is investing in our area and supporting working people across Teesside.”. But one Twitter user, David Wimble, said Mr Young’s tweet "had made my blood boil" while Samuel Hall contacted Teesside Live to highlight cuts to funding for "vital services" on Teesside under the current Government.

Parler: Everything you need to know about the Twitter alternative for conservatives

TWTR FB +1 more TWTR FB DTRUMP

Two days after the Journal article was published, Parler surpassed Twitter and Reddit to become the top-ranked iPhone app in the news category, according to CNBC, which cited app analytics company App Annie. Parler CEO John Matze told CNBC that the company grew its users from 1 million to 1.5 million in roughly a week. As of Thursday afternoon, Parler was ranked second behind Twitter in Apple's top charts for news. It also doesn't brand itself as a social network for conservatives. But the network boasts a who's who of conservative voices. Former US Rep. Ron Paul from Texas; Trump's campaign; Loomer; and Republican US Rep. Devin Nunes from California are on the app. So are conservative commentator Candace Owens and far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who was banned from both Facebook and Twitter. Last year, Nunes sued Twitter and three Twitter users, including one satirically posing as Nunes' cow, over defamation allegations, but a judge dismissed the social network from the lawsuit. How is Parler different from Twitter and Facebook?

Facebook Ad Boycott: Unilever to stop US ads on Facebook, Twitter for rest of year, IT News, ET CIO

TWTR FB +2 more TWTR FB ULVR UNA

Unilever said on Friday it will stop advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in the United States for the rest of the year, citing "divisiveness and hate speech during this polarized election period in the U.S." The consumer goods company, which owns brands like Dove Soap and Lipton tea, joins a growing advertising boycott against Facebook as part of the "Stop Hate for Profit" campaign started by U.S. civil rights groups after the death of George Floyd. "Continuing to advertise on these platforms at this time would not add value to people and society. We will be monitoring ongoing and will revisit our current position if necessary," Unilever said in a statement. "We have developed policies and platform capabilities designed to protect and serve the public conversation, and as always, are committed to amplifying voices from under-represented communities and marginalized groups," said Sarah Personette, vice president for Twitter's Global Client Solutions. In a statement, a Facebook spokeswoman pointed to its civil rights audit and investments in Artificial Intelligence that allow it to find and take action on hate speech.

The company first attached its public interest notice to one of Trump's tweets last month, when he used the phrase "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" to threaten deadly force against protesters in Minneapolis.
