No, Twitter isn’t removing Likes from conservative Tweets, it's having issues globally right now
Some immediately thought that what they’re seeing is just Twitter’s next move to subdue the voices of conservatives on the platform, a group with which the social network has been at odds for a while.
Hey Twitter! This Tweet had THOUSANDS of "likes" an hour ago - suddenly it's down to 99. Twitter management is removing "likes" from conservatives now? pic.twitter.com/5W5mYp368Q— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 12, 2019
My notifications show that 23 people like the post just above this, and yet, twitter is only showing 10. This is how disinformation works. #TwitterIsHitler are so desperate they have to suppress likes. pic.twitter.com/HOHz0R6RJA— MSM is FakeNews!! (@StopMSMLies) February 13, 2019
