@lossy Haha I did indeed! Democracy is important but you're right, the "Democrats" don't represent it no matter how much they took the name. I also made a statement about media, media activism, and why the term "mainstream media" isn't always useful - here: www.mediaactivist.com

@lossy It is very worrying yes - I think it's crucial we fight for democratic ownership of social media and tech in general, and indeed support the few democratic models that already exist.

This is very disconcerting that far right-wing groups can coordinate pressure on to shut down organising groups on the app, whilst at the same time leaving in place the fascist groups behind the campaign. Please boost, and spread far and wide.
