Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California is seriously weighing legal action against Twitter for the now proven censoring of conservatives through “shadow banning,” a secretive process that hides contents or accounts using special algorithms that make the content or accounts harder to find or view. During an interview with Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Nunes reported he has even been a victim of the practice that appears to be biased toward shadow banning conservatives, particularly Republican members of the House Freedom Caucus. None of this comes as any surprise. Look for lefties to begin harping about the First Amendment, in which the Constitution is only something they like when it protects their lack of patriotism.

Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California said on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that he’s looking to possibly take legal action against Twitter after reports surfaced indicating the company is censoring conservatives.
“I don’t know what Twitter is up to. It sure looks to me like they are censoring people and they ought to stop it. And we’re looking at any legal remedies that we can go through,” Nunes said Sunday.
Nunes, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence chairman, added that he was receiving complaints that people were unable to find him on Twitter — suggesting he had been shadow banned.
Shadow banning is hiding content or accounts without outright deleting them through the use of special algorithms that make the content or accounts effectively harder to search for.
“I had no idea what shadow banning even was. For several months, people have been contacting me saying that, ‘Hey I tried to find you on Twitter, I couldn’t find your account. Why is that?’” Nunes said.
