    They think it is being used to send signals to people who are then using it to plan additional "demonstrations" er, ah, I mean riots !

    The two last tweets from Trump, rather benign, were used by Twitter as "justification" to ban Trump permanently.

    Twitter is a foul and corrupt part of this wicked world's machinery.

    They offer a free megaphone to whoever wants it and are therefore corrupt?
    They’re foul for maybe feeling they have some responsibility for the use of said megaphone?

    Can you explain further?

    NO, or only within certain boundaries, if they enjoy any kind of special protection given to them by the public (or their representatives).
    Such as Section 230....

    So they should a) not be able to self-govern or b) be directly and personally responsible for any felonies their users commit online?

    Has common sense left the building?

    I think I have already answered your question above, in plain English.

    Second verse. Twitter's biggest alternative, Parlor, has been pulled from the both the Google and Apple app stores. They were told to implement content moderation on par with Twitter and Facebook to be even considered for return. We all know that is a pretense. I expect them to get booted from their hosting platform within a week, also under some pretense. This is just the beginning.

    I have several acquaintances who use FB, and Instagram quite a bit. Many of them were very vocal a few months ago about moving to Mewe or Parler or whatever site they'd be using. They made sure to let everyone know about their new ID on those sites. Here we are months later. Those accounts sit unused while they are just as active as ever on FB and IG. I wasn't sure when this mass migration by conservatives to Mewe and Parler was supposed to occur.

    We did get a new year starting last week. Shame the calendar went backwards 37 years so we will soon be raising animals on the farm.

    Time to reread those and pass them around the family and neighborhood. Quickly find out who your friends really are.

    MeWe had some problems over the last 24-48 hours due to the massive migrations. Their address book import function ground to a halt (it's now disabled that feature pending scalability fixes). Those accounts were social media bug-out shelters. Now people are moving in mass. I expect MeWe to get banned from the app stores within a week. Allowing this to happen is how the new administration pays back big tech for all its support.

    I do not believe they truly think that. I think they are wanting to create/help create a narrative where anyone who is America First minded/conservative, needs to be viewed with contempt. Ask Josh Hawley.Simon & Schuster Cancels Book Deal With Josh Hawley (mediaite.com)

    Google is dropping Parlor from their app store. The big boys are making a statement.

    is it Parlor or Parler?
    In any case as of this morning they are both available on the App Store.
