Demand that social media companies end censorship of alternative voices online

Social media has been silencing alternative voices online with algorithms that filter their content and users indiscriminately. The latest form of censorship was Twitter automatically including users in a site-wide "Quality Filter Discrimination" shadowban which prevents anyone not already following them from viewing their tweets or denies people from viewing certain posts altogether with a "sensitive content" filter. In many cases, there is nothing sensitive about the content Twitter is targetting, going so far as censoring simple mainstream stories posted by journalists it included on the shadowban. Google and Facebook have used similar algorithms in the past to target alternative voices online on an arbitrary basis, without any chance to make an appeal. We demand that Twitter, Facebook, and Google put an end to this form of censorship through continued congressional inquiries and a move towards a digital online rights act to secure free speech online.
