Social media platforms ?

Does it make you uneasy that social media platforms are more and more wielding the power to silence world leaders and reshape online conversations?

    Yes.  These companies because of their market place dominance, wield too much power.  They’re unelected and therefore can’t be held accountable.  You can’t have the tail wagging the dog.

    Twitter and Facebook aren't the only platforms. We'll just have Conservative platforms and Leftist platforms, same way we have our news. Conservatives use one while Leftists use the other.
