Twitter Promotes Liberal News Stories

On the front-page of Twitter’s prominent “moments” section, the social-media giant Sunday promoted anti-white resentment, pro-transgender politics, and downplayed Hillary Clinton’s fainting incident.

The headline Twitter ran about Clinton’s fainting doesn’t at all describe her going limp and being helped into a van by handlers. Instead the story the headline describes is an “uproar” after Hillary left the 9/11 memorial early.

Twitter also twice promoted an anecdotal essay by Solange Knowles — Beyonce’s sister — that said she got “heckled” by white concert attendees for not sitting down. The story goes on to describe how Knowles says she often doesn’t feel as if belongs in America.

Twitter’s post embedded one tweet that said, “Every white person should read this beautiful, powerful essay.”

Twitter also thought the death of a minor actor — who happened to be transgender — deserved front page coverage.
