Project Veritas

Twitter

Investigative reporting group Project Veritas banned from Twitter: Project Veritas's latest investigation covers Facebook Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen's refusal to comment on leaked statements he made about a Facebook program that “freezes” comments in places that algorithms think there “may be” hate speech. Twitter initially locked Project Veritas's account for authoring a tweet promoting the investigation. "Facebook VP of Integrity @guyro didn't look too happy to see us," the violating tweet said which also included a link to a video teaser Project Veritas produced for the investigation. Twitter said the tweet violated its rules against posting private information. "You may not publish or post other people's private information without their express authorization and permission," said Twitter in a notice sent to Project Veritas. Founder James O'Keefe first alerted his audience about the locked account on social networking platform Telegram. Shortly thereafter Twitter permanently suspended Project Veritas's account, telling a reporter the ban was due to repeated violations of the platform's private information policy. Before Project Veritas was banned TechWatch was able to look at its twitter feed which showed three tweets had been deleted. Three tweets were deleted from Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe's Twitter feed as well. O'Keefe's account was locked by Twitter (but remains unsuspended), which blocks his ability to tweet, retweet or "like" new posts.
