Late Sunday night, Twitter made a huge error in judgment by allowing its leftism to interfere with its business practices by once again taking aim at the hugely popular pro-life film “Unplanned,” which opened in theaters this past weekend.
Tons of folks on the social media platform claimed they were not able to follow the movie’s social media account. This comes right after the account was banned by Twitter on Saturday, spurring massive outrage. The company never did clarify the reason for the ban.
But is one really needed? It’s a pro-life film. Enough said.
Late on Sunday, thousands of people noted that every time they tried to follow the movie’s account that their Twitter accounts automatically unfollowed the account moments later. The Daily Wire experienced the same problem when it tried to follow the account and did not experience the same problem when following multiple other accounts at the same time.take our poll - story continues below
Actress Patricia Heaton tweeted: “Hey @jack – why aren’t you letting me follow @UnplannedMovie ? I’ve tried eight times to support my friend @AbbyJohnson and @Twitter won’t let me. Others are having the same issue. Please correct this. Thank you.”

Twitter is censoring @unplannedmovie and also interfering with the rights on this platform of over 100,000 other Twitter account holders to learn about the film. Who will hold Twitter accountable? https://t.co/8RLsKctgQ7

Kept reading the tweets about people following @UnplannedMovie – then immediately checking and seeing they are no longer following. Tried for myself, same experience multiple times. What’s the explanation? @jack

Okay… separate issue, and I’m sorry but… why wouldn’t @UnplannedMovie be listed in trending with 20k+ tweets in the last hour? I’m asking sincerely, other topics that are “trending” have much less pic.twitter.com/2hB3TDXf7e

It’s sad the great lengths the left will go in order to try silencing the voices of their opposition, even going so far as to use social media as a weapon to put a gag in their proverbial mouths.
Places like Facebook and Twitter are no longer just social media platforms. They are more or less publishers of information, the main source people use to get information. Thus, it’s critical they not be biased, allowing folks from all sides of an issue to have a voice.
Unfortunately, the left is afraid of having their ideas and beliefs challenged and told to produce facts backing up their claims. To do so would prove impossible, leading the to complete destruction of their worldview.
