I like programming, computers, video games, bitcoin, philosophy, zen, mistics and many other.
Send me book recommendations, art accounts and good memes
Toot at me :P

Yup we've got our own franchise, unfortunately.

Excellent article! Might be a great way to save the economies.

Snicker, yeah right — if it was the real one, he wouldn't shut up — Not have 0 toots! 😎 🤦‍♂️

I
'm impressed with the historical knowledge this young gentleman has — Definitely out of my depth to contradict him. I do find his writings and lectures interesting and I learn each time. His writing style is conductive to reading too!

“Many Americans viewed this assault on social media accounts as a liberal or Democrat attack on conservatives and Republicans, but they are missing the point. The narrowing of allowable opinion in the virtual public square is no conspiracy against conservatives.

Even though I'm not a conservative, this in my opinion is wrong. Censorship of any kind is wrong, unless done by a Democratic government following the rule of law — Never by the platforms themselves! The same goes with Mastodon and any other social platform and/or blog.

@bazurk Assuming buzzfeed is correct - I'm not so sure at this point. Are they quoting anybody? Or just sources?

The outgoing head of the Capitol Police requested that D.C. National Guard units be placed on standby in case his small force was overwhelmed by violent protesters last Wednesday, but he was rebuffed by House and Senate security officials and a top Pentagon commander, he said in an interview on Sunday. nytimes.com/2021/01/11/us/the-

I do agree. It has to be legally and not by the social media companies themselves — It's a slippery slope.
