Twitter is taking censorship back to a new level. A message shared by Thiel Capital CEO Eric Weinstein shows that Twitter prevents users from reacting to tweets that are considered “misleading.”
In a screenshot shared by Weinstein, a message from Twitter says they’re limiting interaction with the post he tried to like.
“We try to prevent a Tweet like this that otherwise breaks the Twitter Rules from reaching more people, so we’ve disabled most of the ways to engage with it. If you want to talk about it, you can still Retweet with comment,” the message states.
“I guess I don’t usually go out of my way to Like tweets that Twitter dislikes. But I did just that here on purpose as some people had been complaining, and saw this type of message for the first time,” Weinstein added.
