As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CIS.ORG:

The Center for Immigration Studies has begun documenting instances of Twitter blocking the paid promotion of tweets from our official Twitter account. Following the identification of such an ad block, the Center contacts Twitter, asking for the reason for the action so that we can ensure our future tweets are compliant. Every time we have sent such an inquiry, we have received a standard email saying the tweet contains “hateful content” without further explanation. If the Center follows up and/or receives media attention, the ad is accepted and Twitter claims it made a mistake.

The Center asks that social media outlets including Twitter elaborate on their censorship policies to clear up confusion. As Rep. Bob Goodlatte said during a July 2018 hearing on social media filtering practices, social media platforms need to “do a better job explaining how they make decisions to filter content and the rationale for why they do so.”

The article goes on to state the following:
