The following article, IRONY: Twitter Censors Project Veritas Video About Twitter Censorship, was first published on Big League Politics.
Twitter censored a clip showing its executives testify before Congress uploaded by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe this morning in an action usually taken against videos violating copyright law, in spite of it being in the public domain.
The video featured Republican Sen. Ted Cruz questioning Twitter executives about undercover video recorded by Project Veritas. O’Keefe’s overlayed the undercover video alongside Cruz’s questioning and the executive’s response.

“It was a public testimony, watched by thousands.”
O’Keefe rhetorically wondered on what grounds Twitter would take down such a video.
For those curious, the video is still on YouTube! https://t.co/ip7BchEeiV

In the Congressional hearing, the Twitter executive maintained that the worker’s statement was untrue.
The censored video is still available on YouTube.

Last month, O’Keefe and Jones shared an exchange during CPAC, in which Jones claimed he was taken out of context in the original video.
