Shadow Banning The New Iron Curtain

A new iron curtain is coming down on social media land
Not made of iron known only as shadow ban
Twitter’s algorithms filter out those on the right
Keep their thoughts and ideas and tweets hidden from sight
Under the guise of a hate speech label
Swept under the rug cleared from the ideas table
A person banned from social media and his or her ideas simply cease to exist
Hidden in the enveloping shadow banning mist
Free speech rules must be applied to those on both sides of the political spectrum
Favoring the right over the left or left over the right is a policy that should never beckon
If one point of view is banned history should teach
No one is left with the right of free speech
