"But there's something called an algorithm. It's a weird, mathematical formula. I don't fully understand how it works," he said. "It's through that algorithm where [sic] not to ban you from Twitter but to shadow ban you from Twitter."
Farage then recalled a recent experience where his friend spoke with a "Senior Twitter executive in the UK," and his name came up.
"The Twitter executive used the 'c -word' ... so much for a platform for free speech. The whole culture of the organisation has been towards censorship, towards cancel culture, so frankly, Elon has really really got to drain the Twitter swamp.
Farage concluded: "But if anyone can do it, it's this guy."
For years I would gain 30,000 new Twitter followers per month and most tweets would get 5,000+ retweets.\n\nNow I've had zero growth for 18 months & engagement is at an all-time low. It's the same for thousands of others.\n\nTwitter's algorithm now needs to change \u2014 and change fast!pic.twitter.com/4w9rUALs2X
I see we\u2019re at the stage in humanity\u2019s decline where we\u2019re blaming our personal failures and character flaws on algorithms.https://twitter.com/nigel_farage/status/1518980974587138048\u00a0\u2026
Bizarrely, he has just enough insight to see that a possible explanation is that he has nothing new or interesting to say, yet not quite enough to realise that it's the most probable explanation.https://twitter.com/Nigel_Farage/status/1518980974587138048\u00a0\u2026
