I Hypocrite Facebook Page Deleted

Facebook deleted the popular page, I, Hypocrite, for the fourth time earlier this week with no explanation for the decision.

The fourth incarnation of I, Hypocrite was deleted by Facebook on October 9, with no explanation from the Big Tech platform. When the page’s creator logged in, he received an empty message from Facebook informing him he had posted something that violates their Community Standards and it had been removed. After confirming he viewed the empty screen, he continued to Facebook and learned the page was deleted.

Speaking to Big League Politics, I, Hypocrite’s creator Lyndon Perry says his first page climbed to nearly 300,000 ‘likes’ before Facebook found something objectionable and deleted the page without giving the creator an explanation of what content violated its Community Standards.

His second page reached 101,000 ‘likes’, the third 87,000, and the fourth and most recently deleted reached 68,000. “They are getting faster at deleting me every time,” Perry joked.

Without a reasonable explanation from Facebook, the page’s creator is at a loss for how to proceed.  “I’m telling you,” he said, “these are how my screenshots always look.”

Perry describes I, Hypocrite as “A page that uses politically incorrect humor to engage people’s critical thinking and reasoning skills,” and his posts frequently feature screen shots of absurd, often contradictory headlines from left leaning websites.

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.
