Twitter conducted one of the largest platform audits ever (randomized trial on 58 million users) to assess "political bias" of their algorithm. In 6 of 7 countries, "the mainstream political right enjoys higher algorithmic amplification than the mainstream political left."
Consistent with this overall trend, the second set of findings studying the US media landscape revealed that algorithmic amplification favors right-leaning news sources.
In other words, rightwing whining about biased Twitter "censorship" is completely out of step with reality.
