Twitter is allowing the Chinese government to cover up an ongoing genocide, spinning the destruction of lives and culture as a progressive victory for gender equality.
Even worse, Twitter’s refusal to remove the post comes only one day after the company silenced President Donald Trump as he was calling for peace during a chaotic invasion of the U.S. Capitol.
The social media giant’s hypocrisy was on full display after an account for China’s United States embassy linked to an article Thursday downplaying the ongoing Uighur genocide.
Study shows that in the process of eradicating extremism, the minds of Uygur women in Xinjiang were emancipated and gender equality and reproductive health were promoted, making them no longer baby-making machines. They are more confident and independent. https://t.co/lykDhByEiL
