The Daily Wire Makes A HUGE Move! Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, Brett Cooper & More Move To Twitter

According to DailyWire:

One month after Daily Wire co-CEO Jeremy Boreing revealed a cancelation blitz against podcast hosts Matt Walsh, Michael Knowles, and Brett Cooper, the conservative media company announced Tuesday that all DailyWire+ shows will be streamed on Twitter.

Beginning Tuesday, May 30, all of The Daily Wire’s top-ranked shows will stream for free on Twitter, the largest social media platform that refuses to allow leftist censors to gatekeep content based on politics. 

“At this moment, Twitter is the largest free speech platform in the world,” said Boreing. “The overwhelming amount of positive feedback from our advertisers and audience after putting ‘The Matt Walsh Show’ on Twitter signals to us there is tremendous opportunity, which is why we’ve decided to distribute the rest of our shows on Twitter. 

Boreing revealed in April that tech giants YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok had targeted Daily Wire hosts for “capricious” fact-checks, demonetizations, and bans. As a result of the censorship, The Daily Wire announced that “The Matt Walsh Show” would begin streaming on Twitter. The move was a success. In less than a month on Twitter, “The Matt Walsh Show” had 7.4 million video views, 24 million impressions, and the show’s account gained 140,000 followers. 
While Boreing blasted leftist media companies like YouTube and Meta, he praised Elon Musk’s Twitter for its dedication to free speech. 
“Tech giants like @YouTube, @Facebook, @TikTok_US, and — until @ElonMusk wrote a check — @Twitter, flagging, banning, throttling, shadow banning, and demonetizing us is a constant occurrence,” Boreing tweeted
All nine shows offered on DailyWire+ — including “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the “Candace Owens Podcast,” and “The Dr. Jordan Peterson Podcast” — will stream on Twitter, and The Daily Wire co-founder hinted that even more Daily Wire content could come to the bird platform.
