As I write this, the socials are actively going after Donald trump. Facebook and Twitter have banned him. Apple and Google are attacking Parler by removing them from their App Store. I’m trying to deactivate my Facebook account but can’t because doing so would kills bunch of groups I manage. I may just let the account go dormant and use a burner account to administrate the groups otherwise.
I think we’re in for a bumpy ride the next couple years. If the socials aren’t checked, they are going to dominate all of the media landscape and can effectively suppress content they don’t like.
Going further. By removing dissenting voices from the platform they are creating an echo chamber which has never been good for anyone in history.
