Social media giant, Twitter, continues with its selective censorship and has taken down anti-LGBTQ + Tweet by Member of Parliament for Ningo – Prampram, Sam George. Despite the fact that there is still extensive porn, offensive music, and much more terrifying and bizarre publications, instead, one is not allowed to publicize their opinion against the status quo.
The deletion comes following Sam George’s post on Twitter, expressing his joy over the support he received on the platform following the release of the draft of the LGBTQ+ Bill. As well as his recent twitter row with UK politician Seb Dance.
“I have been overwhelmed by the massive support even here on a very ‘liberal’ platform like Twitter for our Bill on the LGBTQI+ menace. Homosexuality is NOT a human right. It is a sexual preference. Preferences are not absolute or unregulated. We SHALL pass this Bill through,” he tweeted on July 23, 2021.
Twitter, an all-inclusive platform, and an important platform for the LGBTQ + community received a report from a user who wanted Sam George’s tweet removed.
Sam George shared the email he had received from Twitter, stating;
“So they want us to accept their perversion but cannot accept our opinion of their perversion.”
He, however, shared that Twitter was not going to take down the post as it had not violated any of their community rules.
“Thankfully the folks at Twitter apply some common sense and logic,” he added.
Although Twitter’s email indicated that the post will not be removed, checks on Sam Goerge’s Twitter page indicate that the Tweet has indeed been removed.
But the Ghanaian MP is not the only one in turmoil with social media’s censorship of political views. Late last year the whole US election was turned upside down with the help of social media platforms like twitter and facebook that has led to a lawsuit against them by President Trump.
Sam George and 7 other members of parliament are getting ready to lay before parliament a 36-page draft of the LGBTQ+ Bill which seeks to criminalize LGBTQ+ identification and advocacy in Ghana.
