Whistleblower organization WikiLeaks delivered a clear message to social media giant Facebook on Friday, demanding the tech company stop censoring their content. The activist group posted a message to their Twitter account, saying “stop censoring our Hillary Clinton email release,” with a saved screenshot of a Facebook error message on the attempted post.
Dear @Facebook: stop censoring our Hillary Clinton email release. No, really. Stop it. There is no technical excuse.
The message was in reference to a court-ordered release of the former Secretary of State’s emails which were managed on a private server, likely in violation of national security policies and federal law. The growing email scandal has revealed confirmation of multiple educated theories including that she knew Libyan opposition rebels were conducting an ethnic cleansing campaign and that the reasons for the war were tied to stopping Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s planned gold currency for African nations. WikiLeaks had been advertising their coverage; and on Wednesday, the group opened a searchable database for more than 30,000 email records.
