@ShawnTheAtheist Disagree because of the dominance of #socialmedia: The platforms that banned #InfoWars reach over 2 billion people & as such are not just "private companies". What we need fast is a Digital Bill of Rights to ensure a #FreeInternet & a free exchange of ideas on all platforms.
@ShawnTheAtheist 2. I do not value #InfoWars & #AlexJones as provider of "news". I see them more as infotainment, with the focus being less on "info", but all #censorship is a slippery slope!
Fact the top opinion-shapers realised the power of #socialmedia & they don't like it!
@ShawnTheAtheist 3. #Censorship & different forms of #Shadowbanning have existed for years.
I just came out of a shadowban on #Twitter, when my #impressions dropped from 270.000 in a day to just 10.000 - Reason: I disagreed with Jack Dorsey on Twitter not using censorship (indeed ironic!).
@ShawnTheAtheist 4. At the end the main "opinion-makers", from politics, to media, to big business, do not enjoy the fact that the previous quasi-monopoly on opinion-shaping is now being challenged on #socialmedia.
Banning is now the new book burning!
@ShawnTheAtheist 5. There is no real #democracy without free speech & free press: If we accept that traditional media becomes less dominant (fact, just see the stats) & that #socialmedia is becoming more & more dominant, we need to strongly consider this fact & not hide behind "private company"!
