Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa is no stranger to social media. She has millions of followers all over each platform and rakes in $150K a month from her adoring fans on OnlyFans. But Amouranth has also recently become frustrated with Twitter for censoring tweets.
Amouranth took issue with the fact that Twitter will censor content for being inappropriate, explaining that certain creators were getting banned and suspended.
A social media user came forward to argue with Amouranth that Twitter wasn’t censoring anyone. But Amouranth wasn’t having it.
“Mansplain social media to me. It’s not like I understand it after all… You know, eight-figure empires just be happening on accident,” Amouranth retorted.
When some people further questioned her, Amouranth explained that requiring users to change their default settings in order to see automatically censored content “is a form of censorship.” To Amouranth, it was Twitter “favoring” certain types of content, noting that if she shares too much censored content then her account is “throttled.”
“Again, I do this for a living. I have studied this issue DEEPLY. I have also studied the impact of default settings/choices. Internet Explorer maintained monster market share for decades because defaults… Google pays Apple tens of billions a year because?” Amouranth continued.
Twitter is pretty well known for social media censorship. Elon Musk considered buying Twitter with the purpose of ending the censorship but the deal never went through. It’s no secret that social media is full of censorship, but everyone has their own opinion on the matter. Amouranth has now made hers pretty clear.
