Twitter allegedly censoring voter concerns over Michigan ballots

Political commentators on Twitter are drawing attention to an apparent crackdown on voter concerns over the Michigan ballots. 

Early Wednesday morning, Sean M. Davis, co-founder of the Federalist, tweeted an update on the state of the U.S Presidential race in Michigan -- which has recently seen a major swing from red- to blue-leaning in the earliest hours of the morning with the introduction of over 100,000 new ballots.

"So while everyone was asleep and after everyone went home, Democrats in Michigan magically found a trove of 138,339 votes, and all 138,339 of those "votes" magically went to Biden? That doesn't look suspicious at all." Davis wrote. 

But his tweet is now locked in time -- with Twitter not allowing users to share, like, or comment on the post, citing its "US 2020 Presidential Election security efforts." Twitter also placed the tweet under a warning which requites users to click into it in order to read the post.

David Rubin was quickly also alerted to similar censorship, with users being prevented from liking or sharing a post utilising a screenshot of the Michigan electoral map.

The map showed an additional 128,000 ballots being added to Joe Biden's total, with none of the incoming votes being given to Trump.

Matt Mackowiak of the Potomac Society was among those that questioned the bizarre returns, posting "an update gives Biden 100% of new votes -- 128k+."

No victor has been declared in Michigan as of 11:01 a.m ET, and it is rapidly becoming the decisive state for the candidates to be able to reach 270 electoral college votes.
