Barnhardt Podcast #043: Shadow Ban the Pig Wrestlers!

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the recent revelations that Twitter actively engages in shadow-banning of conservative and “redneck” content, both through machine learning and manual intervention, as well as Twitter employees reading the “private” messages and content of users of the service. Additionally we question whether these social media platforms are even needed for conservative writers or if they are counter-productive sources of interruptions where the trolls and “pig wrestlers” love nothing more than to mix it up and get people annoyed. We also talked about social media as a vector for precipitating a Black Swan event — hacking the right twitter account and posting fake news could cause more real-world effect than an accidental ballistic missile warning!
