Government needs to stay out of social media, and new platforms need to step up and compete when the likes of Twitter decides to go the direction they are going.
Plenty of people have tried. Big Tech either buys them out or blacklists them from the internet. It's a monopoly.

So it's either a government solution, vigilantism, or we allow communists to control the flow of information forever, turning ordinary people into obedient sheep with no ability to think for themselves.

I'd rather see ALL social media shut down than continue on being controlled by the far left.

The Chinese Communist Party continues to blame the US Military for Coronavirus and Twitter has done nothing.
Exactly. If this wasn’t simply a political hit in Trump, and Twitter truly wanted to offer the truth, there are lots of options for them to do so.

China is a perfect example. If it were about pursuing the truth for those on their platform, they would have done this to China multiple times.

They have had countless opportunities to fact check.

This was political.

That’s just excuses.

What’s missing is there aren’t enough conservatives out there with the vision to make something that can compete in the social media world.

If a better product is made, people will go to it.

And name me one other political figure that they have fact checked on their platform. There are none, and they host the leaders from all over the world.

Twitter has decided to use their huge platform to sway the political landscape. It may help the political party you support, so you may defend it, but it will come at a cost. Hope it’s with it to you in the next few years.

It’s more freedom being lost.
Name me one other political figure who lies with such abandon? 18 000+ verified lies and counting.

What part of my post do you not understand?

People have tried. They get shut down by the monopoly.

That's not an excuse. It's a fact.

We just had a very long trial surrounding Russia that was filled with people lying. Our government is full of people who lie, and leaders if other nations are really good at it.

How many times have they been fact checked by Twitter? Zero.

You ignorantly support this because it benefits your party and goes after someone you hate.

But hey, it’s your party that has been wanting to handcuff the internet for quite some time, so maybe it’s a win win for you.

Give me one platform that has showed up with a better product.

Google came to power because they steamrolled yahoo with a better product. They moved forward with new products while everyone kept trying to reinvent search engines that were far inferior to what Google provided.

Facebook destroyed MySpace and the other platforms that were similar and never looked back.

Twitter showed up with something new that people loved.

All three of these will get surpassed at some point. It’s just a matter of when.

The social media cannot exist without the people. Just like it doesn't matter how many bells and whistles you add to this forum or how often you rearrange the furniture. Without active members, it's dead.

There are no better SM platforms because the billionaire scum like Zuckerberg crush them before they can build up a significant membership.

Why do you think you have never caught up with TTR in spite of the fact that you have a better site with better moderators? Because the big site redirects traffic from your site.

You don't think the billion dollar platforms do the same kind of cut throat bullshit to smaller sites?

That's always been the excuse for everything, but at some point someone always comes along and climbs higher anyhow.

They do it by doing something different than what other people are doing, not by simply trying to do the same thing better.

Walmart didn't crush the likes of Kmart by having better blue light specials, and Sam Walton didn't come into this game as a billionaire.

Amazon didn't become a major competitor to WalMart by building better Supercenters.

Social Media has been around for quite a while, and it is constantly evolving. The next person or group to be ahead in this evolution will be the person or group to surpass these platforms.

You actually think this is different from any other President?

Like say, ones that wanted to "fundamentally transform" the country with "energy prices that would necessarily skyrocket" while keeping your doctor if you like your doctor?

Save the selective outrage, and have some respect for the collective intellect here.

If you think this discussion is bad, you should see the one at the admin forum I am a member of. I am definitely a fish out of water in there. As far as they are concerned, it's always been the Republicans that wanted to go after social media in this way. Pretty sure they are fact checking me on my revelation that the Democrats have been in support of this for years.

Yup. Worst in the history of the Republic.
The guy had the economy doing better than ever, setting records in such a short period of time after taking over. Unemployment numbers at record lows.

And you think he's the worst ever... That tells us everything we'd ever need to know about YOU. Not him.

Imagine if @Duck was on the phone with @Mike and Duck said something controversial.

Then from now on when Duck called anyone the phone company warned them that Duck has said controversial things in the past. Essentially trying to ruin Ducks reputation.

That’s what Twitter and Facebook does.

My speech shouldn’t be subject to the approval of Silicon Valley liberals.

I agree it’s time to regulate like a public utility and break them up Just like Ma Bell.

Pretty much everything I say is considered "controversial" by the left. 😎

:thumbsup:

Or just shut them all down. Life was a lot better when everyone wasn't a zombie, walking around staring at their phones, crashing into light poles.
