Statistically, 43% of Americans believe tech giants support liberal views over conservative, and 72% believe that social media platforms actively censor opposing political views to their own. Delving further, 85% of Republicans and right-leaning independents find that media platforms are purposefully censoring political viewpoints.
This bias is even clearer when viewing Twitter as an entity with a political spectrum.
In an analysis, Twitter is heavily skewed towards the left, with 67% of Twitter users being center-left or extreme left and only 33% of users being right-leaning (most of whom are extreme right-wing users).
Compared to other outlets like the New York Times, CNN, and Yahoo News, who have almost equal amounts left vs. right digesters, Twitter's user breakdown is extremely polarized and left-leaning.
Additionally, in a study reviewing Twitter suspensions of politically active public figures between 2015 and January of 2019, it was found that conservatives are four times as likely as liberals to "violate" Twitter's ambiguous terms of service.
When looking at this rate along with the user analysis, it is clear that even with so few right voices on the platform, conservatives are more likely to be censored on Twitter.
