I really do NOT trust Twitter. Why? Well because before I start using any tool I do a research about its behaviors, challenges, strengths. After using Twitter for years, the following is a summary of my findings about why I really do NOT trust Twitter.

The bad • Shadow ban. Which is very unethical. If you're not familiar with "shadow ban" it means Twitter ban you, but you do not know you were banned, because you keep posting. But nobody sees your content. Abhinav Vadrevu, former software engineer at Twitter was caught on video saying this at https://youtu.be/64gTjdUrDFQ?t=25s

• Down rank. If you're not familiar with "down rank" it means Twitter try to get you to not show up in the search results. Olind Hassan, Policy Manager at Twitter was caught on video saying this https://youtu.be/64gTjdUrDFQ?t=1m22s

• Twitter present itself as politically neutral. But they do NOT behave like that. Instead many Twitter staff actively do political targetting, bias, promote one political agenda, and censorship of your content if they disagree with it. Source at https://youtu.be/64gTjdUrDFQ

• They easily cave in on the U.S. government. Which frequently and repeatedly asks Twitter to censor user’s content. Pranay Singh, Direct Messaging Engineer at Twitter was caught on video saying this https://youtu.be/64gTjdUrDFQ?t=6m23s Alternative source at https://www.projectveritas.com/2018/01/11/undercover-video-twitter-engineers-to-ban-a-way-of-talking-through-shadow-banning-algorithms-to-censor-opposing-political-opinions/

• Potentially not secure. Because the code is not available publicly. So it can not be review by the public. In other words, there is a risk of abuse.

• It is own by a for-profit corporation. It is not owned by a not-for-profit community. Usually a corporation first priority is to hoard money. Not serve you and protect your privacy.

The good

• None I could think of

Notes

• If you need freedom of speech, openness, diversity, you might be interested to consider alternatives. Such as https://Minds.com or https://DiasporaFoundation.org

@tihedomecu They Are Really Maniac, They Even Shadow Ban You Because You Expose Muslim Conditions On Sri Langka? Does That Thing Even Have Problem With Twitter Restrictions, I Better Tell My Friends To Kick Twitter As Hard As They Can

Once the account is created with an email address, they want me to check my phone number. When you have the ideas of Joe Biden it's okay but when you want to follow trump or bolsonaro, you don't want to be identified and so don't follow them. It's a mafia system

It helps me keep up to date on trends and things going on in the world, while also opening up my eyes to multiple points of view which social media doesn't always do
