Twitter Fails To Stop #KillKavanaugh Hashtag, While Censoring Conservatives
Twitter also allows terror groups like ISIS to have free reign on the platform.
Twitter has failed to demote the appalling #KillKavanaugh hashtag which began trending on the list of search and hashtag suggestions as the platform continues to censor conservatives.
The offensive Hashtag was spotted by Instapundit, a libertarian blog, just days after hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and sexual assault claims against him.
Twitter recently came under fire allow terror group like ISIS to have free reign on the platform.
RT reports: It remains a mystery whether the hashtag is metaphorical and is begging for the very nomination to be “killed” rather than Justice Kavanaugh himself.
Some second-tier US media, such as The Washington Times, printed stories discussing to “kill” Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing – in slightly the same way that legislation might be “killed.”
Twitter search algorithms created headlines earlier in July when it emerged that browsing for accounts of several prominent Republican lawmakers, such as GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel or representatives Mark Meadows (R-North Carolina), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), and Matt Gaetz (R-Florida), produced no effects in the drop-down menu.

Responding to VICE at the time, a Twitter spokesperson said the platform was “aware that some accounts are not automatically populating in our search box and shipping a change to address this.”
However, the spokesperson blamed the “behavior” of the accounts in question when confronted with the partisan tone of the search problem.
