Facebook Bans GETDMS Group

Facebook banned the popular group ‘God Emperor Trump’s Dank Meme Stash’ yesterday, issuing no warning, and claiming that nude images were found in the group.

The Big Tech Giant did not provide any examples of the sexually inappropriate images allegedly found in the group, and instead banned the 12,500-member group outright, giving them the opportunity to appeal the decision.

Since the group’s admins appealed the decision, should their appeal be denied, the group will be completely deleted with no other opportunities to appeal the decision.

One of the group’s admins, speaking to Big League Politics, insists that they are simply young people who are supporters of President Donald J. Trump, and that the group had strict rules against pornography and other types of images that do not adhere to Facebook’s Community Standards.

“We are a Trump-centric, satirical meme group,” said one of the admins, “And now we’re probably dead men walking.”

“Our admins and mods are well trained and vigilant in policing content,” he continued, “But what we see as acceptable might not be acceptable to a Facebook employee in Singapore, or wherever they work from.”

Facebook has suffered several media blunders related to their heavy handed bans in recent weeks. Just last week, Facebook banned the popular pro-gun group ‘implying we can discuss weapons’, and did not so much as give them the ability to appeal the decision.

The company was also forced to reinstate the account of Raheem Kassam, former editor of Breitbart London, after the massive social media backlash from major figures, including Donald Trump Jr., that occurred following his ban.

Twitter Posts Job Posting for Developing Paid Subscription Service; Will Platform Become Pay-to-Use?

Will it lead to the downfall of the platform?

Published

Shares for Twitter’s stock surged more than 8% on Wednesday as the company posted an online job listing for a developer who would work on a new system designed as a pay-to-use platform.

The job listing advertises the opening for a project team termed “Gryphon.” The company describes the team as creating a “subscription platform” that “can be reused by other teams in the future.”

In a statement to CNN on the job listing, Twitter underplayed the announcement, stating that it was only a job listing, not a product announcement.

We’re conducting this survey to assess the interest in a new, more enhanced version of Tweetdeck. We regularly conduct user research to gather feedback about people’s Twitter experience and to better inform our product investment decisions, and we’re exploring several ways to make Tweetdeck even more valuable for professionals.

CEO Jack Dorsey has resisted shareholder demands to reorganize Twitter to prioritize profitability, most recently fending off a buyout attempt staged by oligarch Paul Singer challenging his leadership of the company. Dorsey kept his position of power over the company after reaching an agreement with profit-hungry shareholders, and the new development of paid subscription software could signal he intends to further satisfy them.

The company’s major investors will likely be pleased by any sign the company intends to convert its service into a pay-to-use model, evolving away from the tradition business model of micro-targeted ads towards its user base. However, a change to a subscription model could prove to be a threat to Twitter’s appeal, especially when newer free speech platforms are gunning for the platform’s user base and the company caves to the demands of censorious liberal journalists in suspending a variety of public figures deemed inconvenient to the neoliberal societal model.

Ultimately, the greed and thirst for power of the privileged elites of Silicon Valley could possibly bring about an end to their era of domination over online political speech, heralding a renaissance of the internet.
