Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe is back a tit. This time he caught a Twitter software engineer on video admitting that they shadownban accounts. This went down on an undercover video, something James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have became famous for.
Twitter has long denied that they use the practice of shadownbans. Check out the video where Abhinav Vadrevu admitted to the practice of shadowbanning.
We caught a Twitter software engineer RED HANDED when he admitted that Twitter #ShadowBans to our undercover journalist. Twitter will never admit it: “it’s a lot of bad press if, like, people figure out that you’re like shadow banning them. It’s like, unethical in some way.” pic.twitter.com/MmBGKohWLj

President Trump did not waste any time when it comes to commenting on the situation. He took to Twitter to express his displeasure for the situation.
Twitter “SHADOW BANNING” prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints.

Ben Shapiro appeared on Fox News to discuss the issue. He gives an explanation of what shadowbanning is. He also gives his opinion on the situation. The accusations are that this happens to many people on the right, but rarely happens to those on the left. Check out the video.
