House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy learned something about Twitter this week, and it had nothing to do with the supposed censorship of right-wing users.
The California Republican sent a tweet on Friday complaining that conservatives were being censored on Twitter. He ordered Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to rectify the issue immediately.
Little did McCarthy know at the time of the tweet that a few, simple clicks of a button on his account’s settings would have enabled him to read Laura Ingraham’s tweet. Many fellow Twitter users pointed out to McCarthy that he was unable to view Ingraham’s tweet because he had the “Hide Sensitive Content” setting turned on. So, no, a shadowy conspiracy to hide conservative content was responsible for the censorship.
