How ugly Twitter looks now, especially after their statement like this: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-twitter-concern/twitter-says-deeply-concerned-after-russian-move-idUSKBN2B22GL (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-twitter-concern/twitter-says-deeply-concerned-after-russian-move-idUSKBN2B22GL)
I wonder if people and governments have a limit of patience for the lawlessness that these companies are doing.

I banned facebook, whatsapp, instagram, twitter, google and microsoft.
In fact, I canceled all tech giants. I'll not be censored by them.
If I want to share something with the world, I have my own website (not hosted by a tech giant).
There's email (not provided by a tech giant) and there's Telegram, Signal, etc.
I feel pity for people who can't live without social media, they should go in therapy.

I have an account that follows Dave but do not use it. Does Dave discuss political or cultural topics there? That would be the only reason for such move if the engages in "wrongspeak".

Overall yeah, f*** Twitter and the corporate giants of the Internet. I got rid of most but unfortunately some I can't give up yet due to living abroad (Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram).

I think he is very careful in his statements, but he was repeatedly attacked on Twitter several times.
Everyone knows very well that he approaches many issues in a scientific manner, can do public analysis and debunking, and this interferes with very nature of "hype riding trains".

So true, unfortunately.
