Twitter Overreach
« on: June 26, 2020, 10:54:21 AM »
Recently, Twitter has been accused of overreach, censoring and tagging tweets they deem offensive, including many from Trump. Many conservatives have started accounts on another social media site, namely Parler.

This is what woke me up to the reality of it:

This is bad but the Trump censoring was far worse

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

No, the new one.

I've been saying this for weeks!!!!!! Finally someone else who remembers!
I was just looking for articles about this and many tech sites deleted them. Needed to look on archive sites.

Never heard of Twitter going under.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Inb4 scandals about racism/anti-Semitism/alt-right/conspiracy theorists/sovereign citizens on Parler...
Anyone lazy enough to think it's a good business idea probably lacks the requisite entrepreneurial drive to execute it?

Facebook is now copying Twitter as Unilever & Coca Cola vowed not to advertise on digital platforms that polarize the US. DJT's ban is looking closer than ever.

Twitter suspended the account of a pro-Israel blogger who calls out antisemitism, due to... antisemitism!

After numerous people contacted Twitter, the account was eventually instated.


He later got back his 33k followers, but the fact remains that Twitter is in on a rampage now.
