YouTube Bans MemoryHold

YouTube Banned Government US Election 2020

YouTube banned MemoryHold, a political / conspiracy theory channel, for “violations of YouTube’s policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.” The channel had about 23.5k subscribers and nearly a million total views across 328 videos. In a video update shortly after the ban, MemoryHold pointed out that it could be due to a recent video which talked about algorithmic censorship:

[…] it’s poetic because my video covered the very algorithms that I think are responsible for detecting the content in my videos and targeting it for deletion. The content of the video is so sensitive that I imagine that’s why they decided to just glass the entire channel […].

The appeal was quickly rejected, and his backup channel was eventually banned for the same reason as his main channel. MemoryHold was banned from Twitter on February 28, 2021 and from Instagram a few days later. His linktree page was removed on May 6, 2021.
