Visibility Filtering 101

CJ Hopkins: “So, I finally heard from someone at Twitter about why they have been censoring my tweets with fake “age-restricted adult content” labels and damaging my income and reputation as an author by maliciously deceiving people into thinking I’m some kind of slimy pornographer. So I’m banging out a quick newsletter to fill you in, because I know you’re just dying to hear all the details. OK, seriously, before you decide that I am about to whine about Twitter for several hundred words, and then dejectedly click away from this newsletter, please stop for just a moment, and consider that what I am about to describe is not just a personal gripe about Twitter that I want to bore everyone to death with, but is basically the template (or one of the templates) for censorship in our “New Normal” world.”
