    Twitter Declares ‘Election Results Might Be Delayed’

    Twitter Declares ‘Election Results Might Be Delayed’

    Twitter declared on Wednesday that due to the rise in mail-in voting, there might be a delay in the announcement of election results.


    “With the increase in voting by mail, there might be a delay in the announcement of election results,” Twitter wrote in an announcement. “This means you could encounter unconfirmed claims that a candidate has won their race.”

    Twitter also mentioned news outlets have “historically” projected the winners on election night, but official vote tallies could vary from state to state.
    Zach Cohen, a national security reporter at CNN, noted that the announcement arises as “top election security officials” have urged voters to remain calm as it appears likely that the election results will be delayed.


    Twitter’s mail-in voting announcement follows as the Senate Commerce Committee held a hearing on Section 230 on Wednesday.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for censorship the New York Post’s story about the Biden family’s alleged corruption. Cruz said:

    Two weeks ago, Twitter made the unilateral decision to censor the New York Post, a series of two blockbuster articles, both alleging evidence of corruption against Joe Biden, the first concerning Ukraine, the second concerning Communist China.”

    Twitter made the decision, number one to prevent users – any user – from sharing those stories. And, number two, you went even further, and blocked the New York Post from sharing on Twitter its own reporting. Why did Twitter make the decision to censor the New York Post?


    You can censor the New York Post, you can censor Politico, presumably you can censor the New York Times or any other media outlet. Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you, and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear, and why do you persist in behaving like a Democratic super-PAC, silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?



    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Dorsey were also unable to name a single leftist they have censored.

    Ted Cruz Blasts Twitter as ‘Democrat Super PAC:’ ‘Who The Hell Elected You?’

    October 28, 2020

    U.S. Senate Commerce Committee


    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tore into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey today over his platform’s censorship of the New York Post’s story about the Biden family’s alleged corruption, accusing him of behaving like a “Democratic super-PAC, silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs.”

    Dorsey appeared before Senate Commerce Committee alongside Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, the law that allows big tech platforms to censor users with limited legal repercussions.

    After briefly addressing the other two CEOs, including a shot at Google over its “willingness to manipulate search outcomes to influence and change election results,” Sen. Cruz shifted focus to Dorsey.

    “Of the three players before us, I think Twitter’s conduct has, by far, been the most egregious,” said Cruz.

    In a tense exchange with the Senator, Dorsey denied Twitter’s ability to influence elections:

    CRUZ: “Mr Dorsey, does Twitter have the ability to influence elections”

    DORSEY: “No”
    CRUZ: “You don’t believe Twitter has any ability to influence elections?”
    DORSEY: “No. We are one part of an [inaudible] spectrum of communication channels that people have.”
    CRUZ: “So you’re testifying to this committee, right now, that Twitter, when it silences people, when it censors people, when it blocks political speech, that has no impact on elections?”
    DORSEY: “People have choice, of other communications channels, which –”
    CRUZ: “Not if they don’t hear information. If you don’t think you have the power to influence elections, why do you block anything?”
    DORSEY: “We have policies that are focused on making sure that more voices on the platform are possible. We see a lot of abuse and harassment that ends up silencing people and having them leave from the platform.”
    CRUZ: “I find your opening answers absurd on their face.”


    Cruz then went on to talk about Twitter’s censorship of the New York Post.

    “Two weeks ago, Twitter and to a lesser extent Facebook, crossed a threshold which is fundamental in our country,” said Cruz. “Two weeks ago, Twitter made the unilateral decision to censor the New York Post, a series of two blockbuster articles, both alleging evidence of corruption against Joe Biden, the first concerning Ukraine, the second concerning Communist China.”

    “Twitter made the decision, number one to prevent users – any user – from sharing those stories. And, number two, you went even further, and blocked the New York Post from sharing on Twitter its own reporting. Why did Twitter make the decision to censor the New York Post?”

    Dorsey responded by referencing Twitter’s “hacked materials” policy, introduced in 2018. However, Dorsey admitted that Twitter didn’t know that the materials in the Post’s story were hacked, merely that it was “unclear.”

    “So in your view, if it’s unclear the source of a document – and in this instance, the New York Post documented what it said the source was – it said it was a laptop owned by Hunter Biden that had been turned in to a repair store. So they weren’t hiding what they claimed to be the source. Is it your position that Twitter, when you can’t tell the source, blocks press stories?”

    Dorsey quickly responded that his team made a “fast decision” and that the policy of blocking links to the story was “incorrect” and has now been changed.

    “Today, right now, the New York Post is still blocked from tweeting, two weeks later,” retorted Cruz.

    “Yes, they have to log into their account … delete the original tweet, which fell under our original enforcement actions, and they can tweet the exact same material, the exact same article, and it would go through.”

    The answer did not satisfy Cruz, who went on to highlight Twitter’s failure to enforce the same policy against the New York Times.

    CRUZ: “So, Mr. Dorsey … You have the power to force a media outlet – let’s be clear, the New York Post isn’t just some random guy tweeting, the New York Post has the fourth-highest circulation of any newspaper in America, the New York Post is over two hundred years old, the New York Post was founded by Alexander Hamilton, and your position is that you can sit in Silicon Valley and demand of the media, that you can tell them what stories they can publish and you can tell the American people what stories they can hear, is that right?”

    “Let me ask you something. You claim it was because of a ‘hacked materials’ policy … Did Twitter block the distribution of the New York Times’ story a few weeks ago that purported to be based on copies of President Trump’s tax returns.”
    DORSEY: “We didn’t find that a violation of our terms of service and this policy, because it was reporting about the material, not distributing the material.”
    CRUZ: “That’s actually not true. They posted what they purported to be original source materials, and federal law, federal statute makes it a crime, a federal felony, to distribute someone’s tax returns against their knowledge, so that material was based on something that was distributed in violation of federal law, and yet Twitter gleefully allowed people to circulate that. But when the article was critical of Joe Biden, Twitter engaged in rampant censorship and silencing.”
    DORSEY: “And, again, we recognize errors in that policy. We changed it within 24 hours.”
    CRUZ: “But you’re still blocking the New York Post. You haven’t changed it.”
    DORSEY: “We have changed it. They can log into their account, delete the original tweet, and..”
    CRUZ: “You can censor the New York Post, you can censor Politico, presumably you can censor the New York Times or any other media outlet. Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you, and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear, and why do you persist in behaving like a Democratic super-PAC, silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?”


    Breitbart News will continue to report on the Big Tech Masters of the Universe and their censorship.

    We should have our National Guard taking over at the voting places and do the ballot counting.

    Too much cheating!

    Pass Voter ID with Photo, signature matching, and extend voting in-person to 2 or 3 days.

    Give us a print out of our vote with Tracking Number that we can enter on our counties website and log-in and ensure our vote was caste correctly. If not, take your print out to the Voter Registration Office and have it corrected there. We can track packages all over the world, we can track our vote.

    No more Motor Voter enrollment. Get that out of the hands of DMV due to drivers licenses issued to illegal aliens and MORE cheating. Those drivers licenses need to be deemed Null & Void, and those people need to be deported.
