Twitter’s software was programmed to “find and hide” almost half of the tweets sent or shared during the Wikileaks reveal of John Podesta’s emails.
In other words, Twitter users were kept half-in-the-dark about the Democratic National Committee’s pro-Clinton bias, abhorrent racism, and dirty tactics against Bernie Sanders, a popular candidate in their own party.
Twitter attorney Sean Edgett admitted that while only 2% of the tweets were based in Russia, the company helped the Democrats try to prevent the spread of the news anyway.

Twitter’s systems hid 48 percent of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets using #PodestaEmails, Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett said in his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
“Approximately one quarter (25%) of [#PodestaEmails tweets] received internal tags from our automation detection systems that hid them from searches,” Edgett said.
He added that “our systems detected and hid just under half (48%) of the Tweets relating to variants of another notable hashtag, #DNCLeak, which concerned the disclosure of leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.”
Just two percent of the tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag came from “potentially Russian-linked accounts,” according to Edgett.
He explained that Twitter hid the tweets as “part of our general efforts at the time to fight automation and spam on our platform across all areas.”
Anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks published the DNC and Podesta emails, which were damaging to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, throughout the election.
Among other things, the leaked emails revealed party officials secretly aided Hillary Clinton during her primary battle against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and exposed ostensibly neutral journalists as pro-Clinton partisans.
Pro-Clinton Democrats have the unmitigated gall to suggest that Google, Facebook and other social media empires are biased against Hillary and toward Trump.
Just think about that!
