    Twitter is tagging the phrase ‘illegal alien’ as 'hateful content'

    Center for Immigration Studies says Twitter is tagging the phrase ‘illegal alien’ as ‘hateful content’

    Posted at 7:14 pm on September 11, 2018 by Brett T.

    Back in 2013, the Associated Press Style Guide proudly announced that it was no longer sanctioning the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person: “Except in direct quotations, do not use the terms illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented.”

    And as far back as 2016, when she was running for Senate, Kamala Harris declared the term “illegal alien” offensive and that “we must stop treating undocumented workers as criminals in this country” — a pretty good sign of where her priorities stand when it comes to illegal immigrants vs. U.S. citizens.


    Now the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies is complaining that Twitter is not allowing it to promote any tweets which include the hate speech, “illegal alien.”

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Political correctness has been enacted to keep people from talking. Scary how this has been allowed in our country.

    That should be legally actionable as it is a legitimate legal term they are banning. No question they are promoting bias.

    Corporate censorship - Wikipedia
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_censorship

    Corporate censorship is censorship by corporations, the sanctioning of speech by spokespersons, employees, and business associates by threat of monetary loss, loss of employment, or loss of access to the marketplace.

    The
    constitutional and other legal protections that prohibit or limit government censorship of the Internet in some countries do not generally apply to private corporations.

    Corporations may voluntarily choose to limit the content they make available or allow others to make available on the Internet.[16]

    Or corporations may be encouraged by government pressure or required by law or
    court order to remove or limit Internet access to content that is judged to be obscene (including child pornography), harmful to children, defamatory, pose a threat to national security, promote illegal activities such as gambling, prostitution, theft of intellectual property, hate speech, and inciting violence...
