Twitter Shares Bleed $5,000,000,000 in Market Worth After Trump Ban
Wake up or go broke? Orwell’s platform, Twitter, has now seen the effects of this principle on the draconian anti-free speech measures it has been taking recently.
Yahoo! News reported that Twitter stocks were bombed more than 10% on Monday following the decision to ban President Donald Trump from his website following the Jan. 6 riot in Capitol Hill. Specifically, Liberal Outlet noted that “shortly after the market opened on Monday, the stock fell 12.3% to only hit $ 45.17 per share. “Business Insider Covered The Real Kicker: Twitter’s share price loss erased a mind-boggling”$ 5 billion from its market cap. “Ouch. [Emphasis added.]
“After carefully examining the latest tweets from the @ realDonaldTrump account and the context around them, we have permanently banned the account due to the risk of further incitement to violence,” announced Twitter on January 8th. On his blog attempting to explain his actions, Twitter pointed to two Trump tweets as the basis for his suspension:
On January 8, 2021, President Donald J. Trump tweeted: “The 75,000,000 great American patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKING AMERICA BIG AGAIN, will have a HUGE VOTE in the future. You will not be disregarded or treated unfairly in any way, in any form or in any way! ‘Shortly afterwards, the president tweeted, “For anyone who asked, I will not go to the inauguration on January 20th.”
Twitter has decided to add its own meaning to the tweets. The platform claimed: “[T]These two tweets need to be read in the context of wider events in the country and the way in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by various listeners, including incitement to violence, as well as the pattern of behavior found in this report in recent weeks . “
India Today noted that following the Trump ban, Twitter ran a campaign against all accounts Trump used to reach his millions of followers:
Hours after Twitter Inc permanently banned Donald Trump’s account, citing the risk of further incitement to violence following the violence at the US Capitol on Wednesday, the US president vowed he and his support base would not be silenced. Donald Trump, who was banned from Twitter, tweeted about Team Trump’s account, which he said was also banned.
Twitter’s openly left-wing activism was shown around the world in the months before and after the elections. Recent research showed that the platform had censored Trump and his campaign a total of 625 times since May 31, 2018. In contrast, President-elect Joe Biden and his campaign were not censored at all over the same period.
A recent MRC poll of 1,000 actual voters showing the impact of Big Media and Big Tech censorship on negative Biden stories found that “36 percent of Biden voters were NOT aware of the evidence Joe Biden was providing associate his son Hunter with corrupt financial dealings with China. “Also:” Thirteen percent of those voters (or 4.6 percent of Biden’s total vote) say that if they had known these facts, they would not have voted for the former vice president. ” The shift “away from Biden would have meant that President Trump would have won the election with 289 votes.”
