Tim Pool Twitter Bias
On 5 March 2019, on the Joe Rogan podcast, Tim Pool and Joe Rogan unleashed a torrent of research and specific proof that seemed to confirm that Twitter is hypercritical, has a bias against conservative users, and operates with ideological blinders on.
Guests on the podcast were independent journalist Pool, Twitter boss, Jack Dorsey, and Head of Trust and Safety, Vijaya Gadde. Joe Reagan suggested to Dorsey and Gadde that by choosing to forbid linguistic acts such as “deadnaming” and misgendering” Twitter has, in effect, created a protected class.
Reagan also pointed out that the gender debate is a legitimate debate within the liberal and progressive communities and that by favoring the ideology of trans people over radical feminists, Twitter was not operating in good faith.
Pool on his side invoked the Ray Bradbury novel Fahrenheit 451, suggesting that Twitter’s terms of service, which skew toward censorship will lead to totalitarianism.
