Devin Nunes warns: Drudge Report ‘censored by Twitter’

On Sunday, Rep. Devin Nunes warned that the popular Drudge Report is being censored by Twitter, the American Mirror and others reported.  The tweet was issued after Breitbart’s John Nolte noticed that a number of Drudge’s tweets were being hidden from view.

“Look at how Twitter censors @DRUDGE. 90% of tweets are blocked,” Nolte said.

“Twitter wasn’t just warning readers and letting them click through. The tweets were simply ‘not available’ to be read,” Kyle Olson said.

“I’ve noticed this also,” Nunes said. “Seems like being censored by Twitter. PLEASE RETWEET if you’ve seen this happen in your feed!”

Others responded:


Breitbart’s Allum Bokhari said Twitter seems to be blocking a tweet that features President Trump’s 2020 campaign slogan, “Keep America Great.”


Bokhari adds:

President Trump revealed his new slogan, “Keep America Great,” at a recent rally in Pennsylvania.

We recently reported on Twitter filtering tweets from President Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr. The filter appears to be triggered whenever anyone (including the President of the United States) retweets the Drudge Report. Users navigating to the oficial account of the Drudge Report, will find that all tweets from the account that contain URLs are hidden behind the same “sensitive content” warning message. When the President – or anyone else – retweets the account, their tweets are hidden too.

Twitter has now placed itself in a position where it is hiding tweets from the President if they contain links to one of the web’s top conservative news sites, in addition to hiding tweets from the Drudge Report that quote the President’s 2020 campaign slogan.

Those who wish to see all tweets from President Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and the Drudge Report will have to manually ensure their security settings permit it.

Bokhari explained: “This can be done by unchecking the box marked ‘hide sensitive content’ in your safety settings.
