“The irony!” wrote Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.

Twitter censored a clip showing its executives testify before Congress uploaded by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe this morning in an action usually taken against videos violating copyright law, in spite of it being in the public domain.
The video featured Republican Sen. Ted Cruz questioning Twitter executives about undercover video recorded by Project Veritas. O’Keefe’s overlayed the undercover video alongside Cruz’s questioning and the executive’s response.
“The irony,” wrote O’Keefe, “Somehow a video of Twitter exec testifying that they don’t shadow ban in a Senate hearing was DELETED from our post.”
“It was a public testimony, watched by thousands.”

O’Keefe rhetorically wondered on what grounds Twitter would take down such a video.
For those curious, the video is still on YouTube! https://t.co/ip7BchEeiV

In the undercover video, a man identified as a Twitter employee discussed how the platform censors conservative users, telling the reporter “You look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck,” the employee explained. “The majority of the [machine learning algorithms] are for Republicans.”
In the Congressional hearing, the Twitter executive maintained that the employee’s statement was untrue.
The censored video is still available on YouTube.

Project Veritas has a long track record of having its undercover videos proven accurate. Nearly two years ago, one of its reporters had a candid conversation with CNN reporter Van Jones in which he described Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion as a “nothing burger,” which was ultimately proven true this year when the investigation concluded with no indictments or accusations of wrongdoing.
Last month, O’Keefe and Jones shared an exchange during CPAC, in which Jones claimed he was taken out of context in the original video.
