It's good that AWS, Google, Apple, Twitter finally kicking the racists/facist networks & accounts off their platforms. But its way too late honestly. Now claiming that they are violating community standards that have been in place for years is just hypocrite. They've violated the rules for years and it seemed acceptable to them. Why now only?
@maxheadroom because we're approaching war, so the information warfare has begun.
@maxheadroom it's terrible that they are being kicked out, now they are not on the surface anymore y now it will be harder to get them since they are scattered around the Internet but way more beyond the surface.
@usermeme you got me at "peaceful protest in the Capitol". The people now getting finally kicked never tolerated other opinions, they flat out lie and support violence openly. The only thing that must not be tolerated is intolerance! Maybe do some read up.
@usermeme ah, so protests because an innocent man was murdered by the police is the same cause as protests against election results you don't like? (There is absolutely no evidence of a steal and it has been confirmed by official multiple times )
@maxheadroom Because they're cowards driven by the love of money and want to look good publicly when the risk is lowest for them to make a risky move. The community standards need to be equally enforced for all or not exist.
@ShortStory that's my gut feeling as well. Was also thinking if they apply the same standards now to People like Bolsonaro or Viktor Orban.
@maxheadroom what if i told you this is just a bunch of authoritarian fags fighting for the monopoly of information and absolutely no one actual cares about you or your safety, not the government, not twitter, not donald trump, none of them give a shit about you and they will lob as many theoretical bombs at each other until everyone one around them is dead inside.
@a7 then that's your good right to have that opinion. I acknowledge that's part of a capitalist system that doesn't care too much about users. But eventually I needs the users nevertheless. So I believe they care enough to not piss everyone off.
@maxheadroom They thought the president was 'newsworthy;' in other words, if they didn't let him have his say, they'd fall out of history and he'd be having his say somewhere else. This was realistic enough. The real mystery is why they let all the Pizzagate hobgoblins who supported the President accuse Democrats of pedophilia in ludicrous fairy tales for years, making life hell for people like Tamera Luzzatto (ludicrously accused for years, with no redress, of whoring her grandchildren out to a Democrate pedophile cabal -- all perpetrated on Twitter ) https://justpaste.it/18t8f
@weiterhaktaket yes, that's what I meant. Applying the rules just now is only opportunistic. :(
