Early Wednesday morning, Project Veritas revealed Twitter is willing to hand over President Trump’s private messages to the Justice Department without a search warrant.

O’Keefe’s 2nd undercover video shows Twitter employees talking about how they target pro-Trump accounts by banning them or hiding their content.

O’Keefe released a video Wednesday afternoon warning about the next video release exposing Twitter.

“Tomorrow we have multiple employees at Twitter talking specifically how they censor people for their ideas and some of the engineering involved,” O’Keefe said.

Via Project Veritas:

Steven Pierre, Twitter engineer explains “shadow banning,” says “it’s going to ban a way of talking”

Former Twitter software engineer Abhinav Vadrevu on shadow banning: “they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it”

Former Twitter Content Review Agent Mo Norai explains banning process: “if it was a pro-Trump thing and I’m anti-Trump… I banned his whole account… it’s at your discretion”

When asked if banning process was an unwritten rule, Norai adds “Very. A lot of unwritten rules… It was never written it was more said”

Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety explains, “we’re trying to ‘down rank’… shitty people to not show up,” “we’re working [that] on right now”

“Shadow banning” to be used to stealthily target political views- former Twitter engineer says, “that’s a thing”

Censorship of certain political viewpoints to be automated via “machine learning” according to Twitter software engineer

Parnay Singh, Twitter Direct Messaging Engineer, on machine learning algorithms, “you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck…” “the majority of it are for Republicans”
