Since November 8th, Fox News has been completely silent on Twitter. Though it has not acknowledged it publicly, it is believed that Fox is conducting a “Twitter strike” in protest of Twitter not removing Tucker Carlson’s personal information posted maliciously by left-wing “doxxers”. The Washington Examiner reports:
Fox News hasn’t tweeted since Nov. 8 — a whole month — leaving 18.3 million followers in the dark over why.
Along with their associated Twitter accounts like Fox News Poll, Fox News Politics, and Fox Business, the company seems to have put a Twitter boycott in place, but haven’t released any explanation as to why or put out any demands for change that would lead to their return.
The accounts have remained silent despite big world events such as the death of former President George H. W. Bush and the G-20 summit.
Fox News’ refusal to use the social media platform coincides with the doxing of host Tucker Carlson’s address on it and a large group of Antifa protesters showing up at Carlson’s home in early November. This is the suspected reason for the conservative-leaning cable news network choosing to avoid Twitter, but they continue to not confirm for certain.
Twitter’s continuous attack on conservatives has not gone unnoticed, and this could be another piece of evidence in the case that many on the left and right are building to turn social media websites into “public utilities”.
Social media sucks. The dumb shits believe what is on their sites. Plus they are totally biased!
I think Fox is doing the right thing, should ignore Facebook etc. they are so left leaning, and do their best to stop conservative viewpoints etc. in my opinion they have too much power.
Twitter has proven itself a left-wing tool. Twitter, Google, Facebook, etc. have become excessively politically biased and should be forced to conform to open communication requirements. They have become effectively a most significant platform of communication and should be regulated like public utilities.
