For obvious reasons given my support for Brexit I’ve been monitoring the #Brexit hashtag, then with May’s total betrayal of Brexit I started tweeting and monitoing the hashtag #MayMustGo.
But something strange happened. Suddenly everyone seemed to be against Brexit – or at least I couldn’t see those who were for Brexit. Then the hashtag #MayMustGo changed from having a new hashtag every few seconds to having only 1-3 every hour. I didn’t believe people had stopped using the hashtag, and I was right. As I found this tweet from a climate sceptic:
EU’s fundamental principles prove ‘flexible’ when confronted with a tough negotiator.

And whilst they have clearly tweeted on the hashtag #MayMustGo – I simply cannot find their message on the list of tweets:
It is very clear that twitter are deliberately blocking the hashtag. It therefore seems almost certain that the reason the brexit hastag is now filled with pro-EU supporters (many of them clearly paid lobbyists) is because they’ve blocked brexit supporters from that hashtag.
Twitter are clearly taking money to push a particular political position.
