    Most likely algorithms. The overwhelming majority of social media posting and moderation is automated to save costs.

    Its far more likely that certain key words triggered the ban automatically, a living person reviewed the ban and overturned it.

    Which doesn't play well for the 'double standard' narrative.

    Correct.

    In fact, the ‘double standard narrative’ is nothing but a lie.

    Social media has every right to control and police its own landscape. It owns it. Clearly the "major" social media have a political agenda, and they're going to do everything they can to advance it.

    The Regressive Left doesn't care about freedom of expression or the open debate of ideas. They want to shut down and/or shout down and/or punish and/or intimidate opposing speech at every opportunity.

    That's because the Regressive Left are illiberal leftist authoritarians, not liberals. Liberals defend and enable speech. Particularly that with which they disagree. Real liberals aren't afraid of words.

    Are you suggesting that we need to speak more kindly of people of color because they are weaker and, therefore, need a helping hand more than whitey?

    Why hasn't the SPLC called the New York Times a racist publication for hiring Jeong?

    Sorry if you thought I suggested that.

    One of the old school journalism things is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Finley Peter Dunne - Wikiquote

    Meaning go after the big guy and help those down on their luck. I'll leave you to guess if Ladue or North St Louis is down on its luck so to say.

    Algorithms operate off of the peramiters programmed into them. Somebody has to create them. Somebody has done so to ignore hate speech on the left, but go after what not even hate speech, but talking points on the right. Talking points that the likes of Obama and Hillary were saying when they were just senators. It’s either a purposefully programmed algorithm, or a algorithm with heavy bias that doesn’t think anything the left says is hate speech. I’m fairly certain it’s not just a algorithm operating on its own, what I think is going on is a combination of algorithms flagging key words, as well as users flagging, and a team of gate keepers (very biased) who give the yes or no on whether or not it’s hate speech.

    Let’s also not forget that twitter basically said “yes we do shadowban, but we don’t call it that.” And that’s happening to mainstream commentators on the right, but to virtually no one on the left, outside of the few on the left who have been critical of Obama for things like the drone program, and that he isn’t socialist enough. That’s certainly not an algorithm.

    lol.

    That boosts the double standard narrative. The automated removal program only catches racist remarks if the term white is in them. You think that goes against the double standard narrative?

    Who says that the automated removal program only catches racist remarks if they use the term 'white' in them?

    I've never seen any major social media platform say this.
