FEC Complaint Filed Over Twitter Shadow-Ban

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Twitter in response to the apparent “Shadow-Banning” of his account.  A representative from Twitter told Breitbart News, As we have said before, we do not shadowban. We are aware that some accounts are not automatically populated in our search box, and [are] shipping a change to address this,” said Twitter. “The profiles, Tweets, and discussions about these accounts do appear when you search for them.”

Screenshots of Congressman Gaetz’s Twitter account surfaced this week showing the extent of the problem with his account.

“The evidence is piling up that I am being treated differently on Twitter than people on the political Left”

Gaetz told the Daily Caller “The evidence is piling up that I am being treated differently on Twitter than people on the political Left and I don’t like that because I enjoy the Twitter platform, I enjoy the engagement, I enjoy the candor. I would think that having won my election with 69 percent of the vote to serve in the Congress that the marketplace of ideas could accommodate my views.”

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.

Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
