On Wednesday, the White House rolled out a new tool to gather stories from social media users who have been censored by the big tech giants.
President Donald J. Trump’s administration has previously pledged to “closely monitor” big tech bias against conservatives, and is now collecting stories from the public about their experiences with censorship on social media platforms.
“SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH,” reads the splash page for the new tool. “Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies.”
It continues, “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.”
The tool then collects information and allows individuals to tell their big tech censorship story.
President Trump previously vowed to “continue monitoring” tech censorship against conservatives in various posts to Facebook and Twitter.
However, President Trump is now laying down the hammer in a series of posts on social media.
Trump has vowed to continued monitoring the censorship of American citizens on social media platforms.
Trump came to the defense of African American commentators Diamond & Silk claiming that they “have been treated so horribly by Facebook.” He also acknowledged that it’s getting “worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!”
Trump also expressed his shock at Paul Joseph Watson being banned from Facebook and James Woods being banned from Twitter.
This new tool comes on the heels of Facebook’s decision to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos on Facebook and Instagram. Facebook will also take the unprecedented step of banning any user who posts videos or links to videos featuring Jones.
Twitter Posts Job Posting for Developing Paid Subscription Service; Will Platform Become Pay-to-Use?
Will it lead to the downfall of the platform?
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.
