Andrea Ucini / How Twitter Killed the First Amendment

View Portfolio

Andrea Ucini laments the death of the first amendment by Twitter in his telling social issues illustration of a caged Twitter mascot in front of a wallpaper pattern of Twitter’s blue birds.

Ucini notes that you need not be a media historian to notice that we live in a golden age of press harassment, domestic propaganda and coercive efforts to control political debate.

With the White House repeatedly seeking to discredit the press, threatening to strip broadcasters of their licenses and calling for the firing of journalists and football players for speaking their minds, most can see our first amendment rights are in jeopardy.

As a foreign government allegedly hacked American elections, and journalists and public speakers are attacked by vicious, online troll armies with the aim of silencing opponents, Ucini highlights Twitter’s role in our loss of free speech.
