ColdFusion has an interesting video this morning on the founding of #Twitter. To summarize - low moral values from its inception.
The video unfortunately does not cover their evolution into "censor of public thought". #Twitter, like #Facebook, #Youtube, and #Google in general now #censor and shape public discourse at such a level that they are second only to China. Most people do not realize this or the serious public harm they cause.
Video on Google censorship includes use of "f-word".
Here is a piece that looks at #YouTube. As a viewer, you may not be aware just how heavy-handed they have become. If you must view YouTube, know that you are receiving a relentlessly curated, one-sided, heavily slanted content stream.
[Warning: some unfortunate use of the "f-word".]
Unlike those platforms that now heavily censor content contrary to leftist political positions (e.g. pro-life, traditional marriage, etc.) -- ThinkSpot will allow free speech / free thought. Content moderation will be in the hands of each user, not decided for them against their wishes.
I hope all efforts like this succeed. Google, Facebook and Twitter (among others) are now aggressively suppressing speech contrary to their politics. We have finally reached 1984 but the "Ministry of Truth" is ran (for the most part) outside of government.
Previously I used Google Chrome and their search engine. Now I use Vivaldi and Duck Duck Go. One small example of why you should distrust them is the infamous Gillette white male bashing virtue signaling ad. Google has a hidden hand in this, to wit (despite the inappropriate thumbnail below, there is no cursing in the piece):
#twitter, #facebook, #youtube seem so disingenuous to me. They use filters, #shadowban and account deletions we did not ask for to "protect us". We need their protection apparently because we are too dumb when left on our own. Notice how they do NOT give us any option to opt-out of their heavy-handed censorship programs.
If they respected us, they would make their cultural censoring an option that people could opt-in to (if actually wanted). That would provide transparency and honesty.
#twitter and #facebook are on a tear, #shadowban and outright removal of voices they disagree with. PRAGER U is the latest victim. This classy organization produces high-quality videos on topics very compatible with faithful Christian and Jewish perspectives. Always well reasoned and respectful. They are now suffering a classless shadowban on Facebook (NONE of their 3 MILLION followers saw Prager's last 9 posts).
