Last month, Twitter appointed a new CEO after Jack Dorsey announced his resignation from the social media giant. Twitter is likely to take an even harsher stance on censorship in the future with the appointment of a far left CEO after Jack Dorsey stepped down last month. Twitter Chief Tech Officer Parag Agrawal, the new CEO of Twitter, said in an interview that he does not see protection of free speech as a priority at Twitter.
“Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation. The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.” He said during an interview.
Yesterday, Twitter permanently suspended Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine after he tweeted a video that highlighted flaws in Pfizer’s clinical vaccine trials and potential negative side effects of the vaccine.

“In an eerie turn of events, microblogging site Twitter suspended Dr Robert Malone the inventor of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for posting a video that explained harms feared from the virus vaccine Pfizer. Slamming the social media website over its actions, Indian lawyer and activist Prashant Bhushan described the situation as ‘Just Vax propaganda’. Speaking in Spanish, Dr Robert Malone, from another Twitter page explained why his account was permanently blocked.”
