    Twitter Monitoring “Off Platform” Behavior To BAN People Who Haven’t Violated Anything on Twit

    Twitter monitoring “off platform” behavior to BAN people who haven’t violated anything on Twitter

    (Natural News) It might have sounded promising when Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the social media platform would not be banning Alex Jones as YouTube, Apple, Spotify and Facebook did because he has not technically violated any of their rules.

    However, something much worse could be in the works as reports have emerged that the company is planning to change its speech policies and considering punishing users for “off-platform behavior.” In other words, Twitter will be monitoring the things that users do and say outside of the site and punishing them accordingly.

    Speaking to Sean Hannity on his radio show on Wednesday, Dorsey said: “We look at off-platform behavior as well. At things that aren’t just happening on Twitter, but happening on other platforms or in the real world.”

    In fact, this approach isn’t new; it’s something Twitter has been doing since last December. At that time, it was announced that verified users whose offline behavior wasn’t consistent with their rules would lose their verification badges. To illustrate this, the Verge explained how a verified Twitter user who posted nothing but kitten pictures on the platform but was organizing Nazi rallies for a living would lose their verification badge – but they’d still be allowed to tweet. It’s not clear how they are keeping tabs on people’s real-world activity, but the notion is more than a little unsettling to many people.

    It was also announced at the same time that the platform would be monitoring user names, profile bios, and display names for hate speech.

    Dorsey added that when dealing with reports of hate speech, they consider not only the relevant past activities of a user on Twitter but also the conversation’s “cultural context.” He also pointed out that users can deal with offensive posts by simply opting not to follow those whose views they find upsetting.

    Change of heart due to backlash?

    Dorsey had appeared levelheaded in his initial response to the Jones drama, tweeting: “If we succumb and simply react to outside pressure, rather than straightforward principles we enforce (and evolve) impartially regardless of political viewpoints, we become a service that’s constructed by our personal views that can swing in any direction. That’s not us.”

    Impartiality doesn’t seem to carry much weight among Twitter’s employee base, however. Twitter engineer Marina Zhao responded: “There is no honor in resisting ‘outside pressure’, just to pat ourselves on the back for being ‘impartial.’”

    Another engineer, Mike Cvet, said that consistently enforcing policies, whether you agree with them or not, is “a good thing” but he feels those policies need to be revised.

    Dorsey now appears to be responding to the segment of employees who have expressed unhappiness that Twitter isn’t getting on board the censorship train of its contemporaries. To Cvet’s tweet outlining this view, Dorsey replied that he wasn’t happy with where their policies are either and that work was being done to “evolve” them – presumably to make it easier to ban users on the grounds of policy violation.

    ...
    The difference between Free Speech and Hate Speech is subjective.

    With the ridiculous things that are said every day, this is racist, that is hate speech, how long will it be before normal behavior is completely demonized? Paying your bills on time will probably soon be considered Racist. Paying for something will also be Racist. It gets much worse when you factor in things that you dont do as being racist. If you dont hate Trump enough, is that also Racist? If you dont march and decry violence against the right, is that also Racist?

    I usually say "eating bacon" can be subjectively interpreted as "bad" and used as an excuse to jack up your insurance premiums. What happens if "not eating bacon" is equally dangerous? Damned if you do, damned if you dont.

    “It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished.

    But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, ‘whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection,’ and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of security whatsoever.”


    - John Adams

    The point here being that everything you say or do, and extended to everything you dont say and dont do, is going to be used against you. The REAL goal here is to shut down Free Speech. What you say is going to be equally as damaging as what you dont say. And both sides will be highly vulnerable. By demonizing both sides, making every statement so divisive, the Hegalian Dialectic comes into play and the ONLY solution is to fully eliminate Free Speech entirely, which only serves those in power. Whether you do good or whether you do evil is quickly becoming immaterial, and innocence itself offers no protection. The idea is taking hold, at least to the MSM.

    The current excuse is Hate Speech. That wont last long. Hate Speech can and does promote violence, and none want the consequences of violence against them.

    Revolution comes in Three Stages: Communication, Public Disobedience, and Violence. I think violence is the goal of those in power. They seem to be encouraging only those who actually engage in Hate Speech and promote violence to make it happen, so they have a bigger excuse to flat out prohibit Free Speech. Two sides to this. They think if they shut down Communication, where we talk about existing problems, while simultaneously promoting violence against certain groups, they can control Revolutions.

    During the American Revolution against the crown, only about 1% of the population took part. The rest of the people were Looky-Loos. Most people wont engage in a Revolution. But what happens when that 1%, the Critical Mass, what happens when they overthrow the Govt and try to replace it with a Communist / Fascist / Socialist Regime? Is it possible the US can be overthrown from within by gullible citizens who are taught to hate their own freedoms?

    If people overthrew a govt to have Freedom, is it possible the people would overthrow the govt to have Socialism?

    Yup. Just like the total invasion of privacy has led to no more convictions of criminals. The only people they are going after are those who pose a threat to the Status Quo.
