With conservatives warning of Big Tech firms like Twitter, Facebook and others cracking down their free speech, investigative journalist Sara Carter spoke to Fox News Digital at CPAC about the divide and why it is so important that Congress act to preserve the First Amendment.

Big Tech has allowed Russia to launch a viral campaign in the midst of the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine.Carter added that actual criminal conduct is rightly restricted and should continue to be.

“It’s crazy. But that’s why CPAC-2022’s [theme] is ‘Awake Not Woke’, because people are starting to wake up and realize that these behemoth social media giants like Twitter, like Facebook” are censoring otherwise free speech, she said.

Carter noted that there has been a rise in alternative social media platforms of late – which include Rumble, Parler, and Donald Trump’s Truth Social – and that such competition is a good thing.

“I’m not saying we should censor Facebook. I’m not saying we should shut down Twitter. I’m saying that they need to do a better job at giving people a voice, and we’re not dumb. We can see what the truth is. We don’t need people babysitting us on the truth,” she said.

Audit Finds Half of President Biden’s Twitter Followers are Fake Bots

President Joe Biden has an impressive 22.2 million followers on Twitter; but apparently half of them are bots. According to an audit tool from software company SparkToro, “49.3 percent of account’s following the official @POTUS Twitter account are ‘fake followers” reports Newsweek.

SparkToro defines “fake” as “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets (either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter.”

Analysis was conducted based on factors such as location issues, default profile images and new users. The information is of particular importance as Elon Musk has expressed his concern at the overwhelming number of fake accounts on the giant platform. Specifically, he claimed 20 percent of Twitter accounts were “fake/spam accounts” and that the figure is “4 times what Twitter claims” or even higher.

“Musk said early on Tuesday that his $44-billion deal to purchase the social media company could not go ahead until issues with fake accounts were resolved and appeared to criticize Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal” adds Newsweek.

The accusation put the acquisition in jeopardy, with the two men exchanging a series of tweets about the fake accounts issue on Monday.

The back-and-forth comes after Musk tweeted Friday that the deal to buy Twitter was placed on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts represent less than 5% of users.

“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk wrote. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

“We suspend over half a million spam accounts every day, usually before any of you even see them on Twitter. We also lock millions of accounts each week that we suspect may be spam, if they can’t pass human verification challenges (captchas, phone verification, etc),” Agrawal wrote.

SparkToro’s tool also found that of Musk’s 93.3 million followers, 70.2 percent of those accounts are fake.
