(TheRedWire.com) – Some are beginning to wonder if Twitter’s penchant for power is driving its censorship efforts. Just two years ago, Milo and the infamous founder of Infowars, Alex Jones, were banned from the platform. Then it was former President Donald Trump over his allegations that Democrats rigged the 2020 election, among other things. Days later, they went after Trump supporters and began banning anyone who agreed with the former president. Now, they’ve gone international in their censorship efforts, and there doesn’t appear to be any desire to stop the speech suppression by the massive Big Tech company.

On Tuesday, February 23, Twitter said it banned 373 accounts with ties to Russia, Armenia, and Iran for various violations of its policies. A hundred of the removed accounts were from Russia. Twitter alleges that the Russian accounts pushed false narratives that undermined NATO and attacked the United States and the European Union.
Twitter’s censorship actions could come with international consequences. It’s an intoxicating power that isn’t likely to end, and in fact, could expand even further globally.
