Platform shaping users’ opinions, choosing what they’re allowed to ‘like.’
A message shared by the managing director of Thiel Capital, Eric Weinstein, shows Twitter is blocking users from interacting with tweets deemed “misleading.”
In a screenshot shared by Weinstein, a message from Twitter says they’re limiting interaction with the post he tried to like.
“We try to prevent a Tweet like this that otherwise breaks the Twitter Rules from reaching more people, so we’ve disabled most of the ways to engage with it. If you want to talk about it, you can still Retweet with comment,” the message states.
“Just verified that this is real,” Weinstein captions the tweet, going to say he attempted to like the forbidden tweet to test if he’d get the message.
