It's funny how #Frankfurt, which became Germany's global banking center after WW2 carries this fact already in its name: the ford the Franks used to cross the Main (sic) river to trade with the Romans, the tribe they would eventually supplant as the dominating European power.
Crossing a river, at that time more like a bunch of meandering streams, slows you down, esp. if you are burdened with wares. It also intersects with the other trade route, the Main river itself. Makes sense to offer a resting place nearby, where travelers can lodge ... and trade.
Traders travelling and resting need protection, as do the other, stationary members of the tribe. It makes sense to bundle together a few inns, the landing place for ships, surrounding buildings and fortify the perimeter. It might even invite the traders to stay a bit longer.

@jack Dear Jack, there is not the "perception of #shadowbanning”, but the reality of it and much worse: The #suspension of many bona fide #Twitter-users, who do not troll, harass or engage in #hatespeech, but simply push a conservative agenda. This happened in the #US, #UK, FRA & #GER.
@jack 2. You now find many of those accounts on #GAB & users like #KoljaBonke, an author from #Frankfurt, who was suspended on #Twitter for giving daily updates about migrant #crime in #Germany (just posting articles or police reports). So content you find in a newspaper!
@jack 3. So Jack, this is NOT about perception, but your "conversational health work" is clearly just one sided #censorship, which many users have experienced for years, from the reality of #shadowbanning, to the many #suspensions! @nicolabeerfdp
