Minds.com has banned a tweet by Bill Ottman, the CEO of the company behind it. The advertisement was posted by Minds.com’s team, which is an open-source social network that allows for free speech. Minds CEO Bill Ottman claims that the advertisement was called “unprofessional”. “inappropriate,” adding, “this is what we expect from Twitter so it’s nothing new, it’s just a very funny and over-the-top case.”
This ad promotes the Minds Festival of Ideas. It is an annual conference that features a variety of political voices. The event takes place this Saturday at New York City’s Beacon Theater.
Minds CEO Bill Ottman told The Post Millennial that their ad on Twitter — a company that directly competes with the free speech platform — was rejected immediately.
“The rejection email came immediately after pressing the submit button on the promotion, which makes it feel like it wasn’t reviewed by a human,”Ottman.
“It was deemed ‘inappropriate’ instantly by an account restriction or maybe some AI/ML trigger. There’s nothing close to inappropriate in the post. And this is what we expect from Twitter so it’s nothing new, it’s just a very funny and over-the-top case.”
Minds Festival has shown that people from opposing points of view still care about having productive discussions and having a great time.
