1/ Draft of a Congressional bill titled "Keep Big Tech Out of Finance" Act is significant.
Note out this announced is right on the heals of Trump tweeting his feelings about #Bitcoin and #Cryptocurrency in general and specifically called out #Facebook #Libra...
2/ FB jumping in the financial industry with their 2billion userbase to tap into *is* a wakeup call. They laughed at #Bitcoin because it was small, but with FB they see a threat.

I'm no fan of #ZuckBucks but I think the #Crypto industry needs to get on #TeamFB with this bill.
3/ This knee jerk reaction to #BigBanks not liking their domain being disrupted by #BigTech, so they're getting Congress involved. It's clearly an overreach in govt trying to coddle #BigBanks, a relationship that needs to seperated more through disruptive tech, not less.

Here’s our sorry excuse of a president—the President of the United States of America—on Russian state TV calling Vladimir Putin “a great guy.” He’s a dictator who rules w/impunity, oversees terror campaigns against LGBTQ+ ppl, & attacked our democracy.
It comes just a day after the son of our president — accidentally gave away the game, when he posted this vile tweet about Senator @KamalaHarris during the Democratic Debate. He then deleted it, but not before observant watchdogs figured out it was an aggressive bot campaign—
.@RVAwonk did yeomans work uncovering just how quickly the message @DonaldJTrumpJr shared ab @KamalaHarris had spread. It spread through a network of fake @Twitter accounts. The same vile, hateful msg.

Tech Insider Blows Whistle on How Pinterest Listed Top Pro-Life Site as Porn, "Bible" Terms Censored - Project Veritas Insider names employees who are using censoring 'techniques' they perform to shut down/block Free Speech.
2/ Wow. That didn't take long.
UPDATE on the above post:
If you watched the InsiderVideo release by ProjectVeritas earlier today you'll know that "Live Action", a pro-life group, was labeled as 'porn' on the Pinterest platform so searches would be flagged & not found.

3/ Since airing the video, Pinterest, instead of doing the RIGHT thing which would be to correct the issue & remove the label 'porn' so it could again be searchable, the platform decided to double down & Permanently BAN Live Action altogether.

Thread: Recently I was asked to appear on a conservative TV news show for their "capitalism vs. socialism" week. After explaining the basic premise of my argument, I was rescheduled & then canceled.

Here's why #capitalism vs. #socialism is an entirely wrong debate & dichotomy:
First off, no one agrees on (or even seems to understand) definitions of both systems. To quote @MikeBloomberg recently: "Anyone who believes that unfettered capitalism works hasn't read history."
I would add that anyone who believes socialism works also hasn't read history.
I'll spend more time debunking free-market capitalism as a reality (regardless of whether you actually agree with it or not), as that seems to warrant more explanation.

KEY POINT: No country in the world exercises totally unfettered, free market capitalism. Let me explain why:

THREAD. A lot of legal discussion about Big Tech derives from section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The misapplication of section 230 by the federal courts opened the door to the algorithmic manipulation, economic exclusion, and social media censorship we now see. 1/
Section 230 legally immunizes any "provider of an interactive computer service" when it "restricts access" as long as the provider acted "in good faith" against content it considers "obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable" 2/
This immunity allowed internet platforms to feel comfortable excluding content it considered outside the bounds of First Amendment speech even if it wasn't, but of the kind of speech often outside the bounds of First Amendment protection: obscenity & imminent lawless action. 3/

Here’s my full remarks to Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Nick Clegg and Facebook Shareholders.
They cut my mic after the chair addressed me directly (something that they did not do with the prior dozens of speakers) I replied “It’s time to take responsibility and break up Facebook.”
I’m also really proud that I was able to speak uninterrupted for a full 6 minutes although my allotted time was 3 mins. They didn’t stop other speakers from going over their allotted time however Zuckerberg and Sandberg were both visibly distressed that I called them out by name.

@TwitterSupport another week & @twitter has taken away thousands of followers from me. You’ve tampered with my followings numbers as well making it look like I’m not following anyone, thereby cascading the amount of unfollows to come.
@potus @mattgaetz @WhiteHouse @parscale
@Twitter is it in your T&S, that you are able to break your own software because I am not part of the hive mind left wing? Is this why you make up & associate me with inferred interests of people and objects I don’t know nor care to? Is this why you take away followers every day?
This tweet has had quite a lot of engagement and yet there are only 5 followers as a result of almost 12,000 engagements. This is just more evidence. Perhaps you’ve realized the gigantic #AntiTrust & worse lawsuits that coming at #BigTech for their crimes.

I'm no lawyer or poly sci, but logically the govt shouldn't allow companies to harm its citizens nor violate their constitutional rights. If #Facebook and friends had formidable alternative competitors this wouldn't be such a big deal; but they don't, nor will they ever. #BigTech
Their power is so absolute and concentrated, it will be literally impossible for any other company to start up and surpass them. This is akin to a mom-and-pop shop trying to take out Walmart; it's not going to happen and they know it.
Going to Gab or other sites does not solve the problem. It removes and quarantines you from engaging in larger public discourse . Such sites are basically echo-chambers. There you will find victims of political discrimination like yourself and you will be preaching to the choir.

Jack isn’t going to change, his shareholders are thrilled that his numbers are up. He made a point of cleaning out “millions of trolls,” & his stock price “skyrocketed. As the Golden Boy, only Trump can get him to acknowledge his misuse of a PUBLIC PLATFORM, & exact a fine.
2/ But this is not limited to Twitter; FaceBook, Amazon & Google run the world as they see it. The FCC needs to excercise the teeth it has by retracting licenses or fining these agencies. These are PUBLIC PLATFORMS they use FOR FREE, then place limitations on according
3/ to their politics. #BigTech is not recently runaway. This horse left the barn over a decade ago, but because it’s favorable to #Democrats they look the other way. And the Conservative response? Our dinosaurs in #Congress don’t understand tech.

Liebe Grünen, bei dem Streit um die #Urheberrechtsreform, #Uploadfilter und #LinkTax geht es nicht um ein paar Youtube-Kanäle von Teenies.
Es geht um die Zukunft des digitalen Binnenmarkts in der EU.


@Die_Gruenen @GreensEP @europeangreens…
Die Digitalbranche ist nicht nur ein sprudelnder Quell von Steuereinnahmen, sondern für einen immer größeren Teil der jüngeren Generationen die einzige Möglichkeit, einen sicheren Job zu finden.

Die #Urheberrechtsreform führt in der jetzigen Form dazu, daß die Digitalbranche in der EU nicht nur jegliche Rechtssicherheit verliert, sondern durch den Zwang zu #Uploadfilter sämtliche Daten durch #BigTech Konzerne in den USA filtern lassen muss.

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.
