Instagram Announces Policing of Private Direct Messages, Law Enforcement Team-Up in Latest ‘Hate Speech’ Crackdown
The Daily Wire reported:
Instagram announced last week that they will begin policing private messages in their latest crackdown on so-called “hate speech.”
Citing “targeted footballers in the UK,” the platform announced Wednesday that they will be taking “more steps” “to help prevent” abuse and hate speech in direct messages:
“So today we’re announcing some new measures, including removing the accounts of people who send abusive messages, and developing new controls to help reduce the abuse people see in their DMs.”

Facebook reportedly keeps a list of “hate agents” that it advises its staff to watch for potential termination. Black conservative and prominent activist, Candace Owens, is shown on the list. Worse more, she’s shown on an additional list that gives “extra credit” to employees who find creative ways to censor her.
According to a Facebook employee source that spoke to Breitbart News, the “hate agents” list was disseminated through an internal Facebook employee channel. Brian Amerige, a former Facebook engineer, resigned over the list citing Facebook’s political intolerance as his reason. The source claims the “hate agents” list is populated with numerous conservative minded figures.
