You hear conservatives screaming that social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are treating them unfairly… first off—it’s true.
Now I can only attest to what I personally witness. But in the past 5 months, I’ve been the subjected to the bully tactics of all three of the major players— Facebook, Twitter AND YouTube. Screenshots of all follow.
And this is not about ‘free speech’ (free speech does not apply to privately owned entities) this is about manipulation of the marketplace.
The most recent -> YouTube is warning viewers that visiting my website may be unsafe— implying ‘Inappropriate Content” without providing ANY specifics. And there is no appeal process. They use the phrase “MAY BE HARMFUL” for legal wiggle room. But the damage this does is incalculable.
How is this not slandering my business? How is this NOT impeding my ability to conduct business?
Of course this follows TWITTER’s recent decision to reject all advertising from Intellectual Froglegs — ridiculously claiming ‘Inappropriate Content” without providing ANY specifics. AGAIN – No Appeal process.
Of course… I ALSO received a 30-Day Suspension from Facebook also claiming ‘Inappropriate Content” without providing ANY specifics. AGAIN – No Appeal Process.
All of these events are within the past few months. Is there a lawyer in the house?
