Social media platforms, for their part, have pushed back against the accusations against them. These networking sites maintain that they are not intentionally silencing the voices and content of conservative users. However, this has not convinced most conservatives.
There are many accounts of experienced censorship. Video demonetizations, shadowbanning, large drops of followers, bans, account lockouts, and more are some examples.

Those who subscribe to this theory furthermore believe that big tech companies know this and are using censorship to swing the odds in the Democrats’ favor.
