Reddit Blocks Rumble Links in Private Messages

Reddit Restricted Policy Decisions

Reclaim The Net investigated and confirmed claims made by users that Reddit was blocking links to, an alternative video-hosting platform, in private messages on the platform. Didi Rankovic for Reclaim The Net reported:

Reddit users have been reporting to Reclaim The Net that the social media site is censoring alternative video platform Rumble in private messages.

Screenshots shared show that the platform is informing users that their messages containing links to Rumble are blocked by domain filters.

Reclaim The Net was able to independently confirm this, also seeing that, on Desktop, any private messages that contained a link to a Rumble simply failed to turn up in the recipient’s inbox.

About six months prior, Reddit blocked anyone from posting a link to BitChute, another alternative video-hosting platform.
