An investigation by the leftist site Gizmodo found not all conservatives are being equally censored by Twitter.
“In what appears to be new ranking behavior, Gizmodo has identified several prominent far-right accounts now buried by Twitter’s search feature,” the site claimed. “As an unintended side effect of demoting divisive figures, many of the dropdown results now show fake accounts.”
Some examples of accounts which have been censored include author and journalist Mike Cernovich, author and YouTuber Stefan Molyneux, InfoWars Editor-at-Large Paul Joseph Watson, Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft, and commentator Laura Loomer.
The demotion censorship makes it so that these accounts are not recommended when users search for them, with Twitter’s algorithm preferring to recommend fake impersonation accounts than the real users.
Not all "conservatives" are affected by Twitter's new search result censorship, with Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, the National Review’s David French, the Resurgent’s Erick Erickson, and Glenn Beck remaining unaffected…https://t.co/IAZv2EpEhY

The accounts could only be found after a user hit enter, but were not recommended in the search bar.
Breitbart News also discovered other examples of censored users, which included author and commentator Lauren Southern, OAN correspondent Jack Posobiec, Dilbert creator Scott Adams, lawyer and commentator Will Chamberlain, Gateway Pundit reporters Lucian Wintrich and Cassandra Fairbanks, Daily Caller contributor Scott Greer, Daily Caller reporter Peter J. Hasson, Daily Caller and Rebel Media journalist Rob Shimshock,
Several employees of Breitbart News, including this author, Breitbart Tech senior reporter Allum Bokhari, and Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House were also censored.
Not all conservatives were affected by the censorship, however, with Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, the National Review’s David French, the Resurgent’s Erick Erickson, and Glenn Beck remaining unaffected.
Those are all NeverTrump cucks who pose zero threat to the establishment, in case you haven’t heard of them.
As I reported on Saturday, Twitter’s mass censorship has turned the site’s search pages (which show up when you click any trending topic) into a leftist echo chamber.
After Virginia Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart was trending on Saturday as a result of his debate with Democrat Senator Tim Kaine, users had to scroll down through around one hundred negative and defamatory comments accusing him of being a racist, Nazi, white supremacist and so on before finding one single person praising his debate performance.
Google and YouTube have both similarly censored all their search results to only show establishment news sites for every topic which is in any way news related.
This is censorship on a level never before seen and it’s all being done to help the Democrats win the midterms and defeat the populist movement behind Donald Trump. This is the very definition of “election interference” and it’s being cheered by the leftist establishment.
