Previously, the New York Post published material on the censorship mechanisms on Twitter (blocked in the Russian Federation – editor’s note) in recent years. According to the article, agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other law enforcement agencies in the United States regularly sought to block accounts on this social network for political reasons. The secret services treated it almost like a subsidiary. This influence was facilitated by the fact that Twitter’s leadership was “embedded through and through” by former FBI employees.
“Recent revelations of what was happening on Twitter confirmed only what many knew before. Those who accused Twitter of censorship and arbitrary bans were accused in the United States of ‘conspiracy theory’. I was against Trump, freedom of expression, freedom of opinion, against traditional values,” Pushkov wrote on his Telegram channel.
The senator drew attention to the fact that over time all “conspiracy theories” are confirmed in the US – “from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to the fictitious reasons for the aggression in Iraq.”
“The Twitter situation simply confirms the rule,” he concluded.
