Unplanned was the breakout movie of the weekend. In just days, Unplanned has taken in an estimated $6,110,000, and has risen to the number 5 movie at the box office. Even with such a high level of success on its debut weekend, Unplanned had to deal with unforeseen bumps in the road on Saturday due to Twitter (2.1 – Lean Liberal).
Many news outlets including Fox News and The Daily Wire were reporting that the Unplanned twitter account was suspended for a brief period of time on Saturday, and suspiciously lost over 50,000 followers. Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra said this:
Late on Sunday, thousands of people noted that every time they tried to follow the movie’s account that their Twitter accounts automatically unfollowed the account moments later. The Daily Wire experienced the same problem when it tried to follow the account and did not experience the same problem when following multiple other accounts at the same time.
Ashley Bratcher, the actress who plays Abby Johnson, told Fox and Friends on Monday:
I think it’s incredibly suspicious given that we were suspended, then reinstated, then we lost followers, then we have people saying they can’t follow, then my own account was unfollowed from the movie. I couldn’t even follow my own movie.
2ndVote has recently highlighted how big tech companies such as Facebook (1 – Liberal) and Twitter (2.1 – Lean Liberal) are shadow banning conservative ideas on their platforms. This so called “error” by Twitter will do little to alleviate concerns as to the company’s censorship practices.
We recommend that all of our supporters go see this powerful movie, as well as reach out to Twitter and Facebook to tell them that you do not support them stifling conservative ideas on their site!Contact Facebook! Send Twitter an Email!
