Twitter Throttling Topics They Don’t Like?

Yet another example of strange behavior with the traffic from Twitter to go along with the disconnecting from conversations and the strange disappearance of pro-Trump tweets.

I recently tweeted a link to my blog post that is unflattering to the proponents of climate science. I have 138,000 Twitter followers. My traffic from Twitter to my blog in a recent minute was only 14 people, while overall traffic from other sources was its usual robust self. For non-controversial topics, my Twitter-driven traffic for a tweet to my blog would be 200-300 per minute in the half-hour after a tweet. On this topic, it hovered between 10-14.
