Twitter Mocked for Condemnation of Internet Censorship… In Uganda

Not the Babylon Bee.

Twitter is condemning internet censorship. No, not in the United States or Europe. Twitter is condemning  internet service providers blocking social media apps in Uganda in the runup  to their election. Tucker Carlson had a field day with this on Tuesday night.

Twitter’s Jack Dorsey appeared to be in a daze during his recent testimony to  the Senate but that stupor must be affecting the rest of Twitter to the extent that they lack all sense of self-awareness with their condemnation of internet censorship over the Uganda elections. This condemnation by Twitter comes on the heels of that social media outlet banning the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop in the weeks before the November election in the USA. It is even more absurd since it also comes less than a week after Twitter’s competitor, Parler, was shut down by the social media monopolies when Google and Apple blocked access to the Parler app and Amazon shut down its server followed by Jack Dorsey openly gloating about it.

Here is Twitter issuing perhaps the most clueless tweet of all time about internet censorship in Uganda.

 

 

You will probably burst out laughing particularly when the image of Hunter Biden’s laptop pops up in your mind when reading Twitter pontificate that “Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.”

 

 

Of course, the over the top hypocritical tweet lacking any sense of self-irony was like an incredibly slow pitch over the plate of public discourse just begging to be hit out of the ballpark with mockery. Here are but a few examples:

 

 

Exit question: Will Twitter place warning labels on tweets challenging the integrity of the Ugandan elections or is that reserved only for U.S. elections?
