Tech giant Twitter very clearly “manipulated the algorithm” to push down any tweets related to Donald Trump’s CPAC speech, according to Sky News contributor Daisy Cousens.
Mr Trump spoke to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday (local time) in a much-anticipated appearance marking his first since President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
In the speech he hinted at a potential run for president in 2024, while also slamming President Biden and “weak” Republicans.
Ms Cousens said the president was extremely popular after the CPAC which was evident the “hundreds of thousands of people tweeting about it”.
Despite the large of traffic relating to the president, many of the Trump-related terms which were trending were quickly replaced with trends relating to the golden globes.
“The trends only had a couple of thousand tweets attached to them in a lot of cases,” Ms Cousens said.
“The actor Jeff Daniels was trending well above anything associated with Trump and he had 00 tweets attached to him.
“So it was very very clear that Twitter was manipulating the algorithm and manipulating the tweets – which they do – to push down anything related to Trump and to push up anything kind of commercial.”
Why are true Americans with conservative values still supporting TwitTurd. The best way to reduce their power to destroy America is to migrate their business from TwitTurd to one of their competitors that support 1st amendment rights like Parler and/or Gab. Every time I post anything on FaceCrook, I also post it on mewe and/or IDW and I almost always include a comment on FaceCrook encouraging people to migrate off FaceCrook by following this pattern.
if enough people will simply stop using twitter twitter will go away...really. funny thing about business dynamices in a free market - people either buy your product and you stay in business or people do NOT buy your product and your business fails.
Let it fail - let it fail.
Same with Facebook...if you don't like it stop using it. No one makes you use it and you (the general "you" ) obviously dislike it...stop using it
Everybody, of all political stripes knows twitter is biased. They don’t bother trying to hide it any more. I’ve never had a twitter account so don’t see the attraction anyway.
It’s my opinion that all conservative minded people should abandon twitter. If you maintain a profile you are giving them tacit support. Every tweet puts money in their war chest to use against you - in 2022 and 2024
Twitter is filled with twits.
When Trump was talking, twits tweeted about Trump.
It is no surprise that when the Golden Globes started up, twit chatter turned to the golden globes.
The algorithm is working fine: twits tweeting about stupid shit always takes center stage
