EASY STOP ALL THE BIAS BS OF THE NEWS OUT LETS! Stop letting news media post Don’t believe a word that comes out of a Democrats mouth then !! You know they’re lying!! Easy the internet needs to go dark Hope they start with ABC! I have a great idea quit watching CNN, MSNBC, and meet the press it’s pretty easy !!

Alittle late for USA ! You’ve had 3 years... one way is to ban fake news ABC Shutting down til December? That better include Trump.

When will twitter and the dems realize that most Americans don’t form their opinions from what is posted on social media. Some of us listen to the lies straight from the politicians mouth... They're referring to CNN, obviously TRANSLATION: Twitter is looking to label conservatives as purveyors of “misinformation” so they can shut down their accounts.

They can start with CNN MSNBC RepAdamSchiff SpeakerPelosi They could ban known misinformation accounts. Here’s one: realDonaldTrump If they stop miss information mainstream media like ABC will have to be silent. Censure the mainstream media because 90% of what they report is misinformation, biased or not the full story.

who makes the judgement? Twitter? liberal media? or government? I love Twitter!

Who wants to tell them we’re already In the 2020 election? Then maybe they can start by suspending Donnie’s account🤔🤔 😂, y’all nervous as hell. It's not just foreigners interfering in our elections. It's not Putin actively sabotaging candidates. I have a solution: delete Twitter Who decides what’s “misinformation” and what isn’t? Is it based on fact or human interaction that can be bias? What’s next, first amendment restrictions?

Better shut down then because Twitter is nothing but 98% crap Start by looking into any ip address with hundreds of twitter handles. Just a thought. Who Determines What Misinformation Is Censorship Have to locate dumb people who write dumb stuff. It's a start.

Republican Susan Collins' Democratic challenger holds slim lead in 2020 Maine Senate race, new poll showsSara Gideon, speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, has a 1-point lead over the senator. Pour in the money. 👍🏽 Polls be lyin’

just remove every thing a Democrat says , see easy Manipulative narratives & election interference from mainstream media will be next. The blogosphere-tabloid hot garbage people call journalism needs to be fixed. Sensationalized clickbait needs to be purged from professional journalism. Foreign attacks don't work=legit journalism

How? Are they cutting off all the media? Twitter AI rejecting conservative censorship, Twitter heads in meltdown. Even the machines know the left is batshit crazy. More restrictive language by Republicans and less restrictive language by Democrats. Facebook is like f*ck it, we're going to pander to our base, the lowest common denominator, pissed off white males, the largest peddlers of misinformation and there's nothing their users can do about it. Kudos to Twitter for at least trying to act as if they trying to stop it!

Really then get rid of lol they are a total joke Trumps account is the number one offender. How about addressing all of Trump's fake followers?
