GAFAM vs Trump: Game Over!

Twitter permanently bans Trump – The president’s preferred megaphone is gone – Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump on Friday, days after a pro-Trump mob stormed the US Capitol leaving five dead. – “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said in a statement Friday.“

Twitter permanently suspends @TeamTrump after string of Trump tweets – After permanently suspending the @realDonaldTrump account late Friday, Twitter also moved to suspend the @TeamTrump account. This followed a series of tweets quoting Donald Trump, and an altered image of the Twitter logo. – Approximately 45 minutes before the Trump campaign account was suspended, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed that if Donald Trump tried to tweet elsewhere those accounts would be removed as well.“

Trump’s ban from Twitter creates the ultimate case of link rot in posts across the internet – All those embedded posts of his tweets are now broken … But embeds of Trump’s original tweets are now displaying in articles across the internet as shadows of their former selves, some with just the text of the former tweet included, others as empty gray boxes.“

Not Easy, Not Unreasonable, Not Censorship: The Decision To Ban Trump From Twitter – When I started writing this post, it was about Facebook’s decision to suspend Trump’s account indefinitely, and at least until Joe Biden is inaugurated in a couple weeks. I had lots to say on that… and then Friday afternoon, Twitter decided to ban Trump’s Twitter account permanently. This is a bigger deal, not just because it’s permanent, rather than indefinite, but because so much of Trump’s identity over the last four years (and before that) is tied up in his Twitter account and followers. … The regular rules could never apply to Trump because Trump is not a regular person. And, no, not even comparisons to foreign leaders are apt, because as silly as American exceptionalism is, the United States is still different than nearly every other country in the world. And, it’s not just the position he’s in (for the next few days anyway), but also Trump’s willingness to use his account to make pronouncements unlike pretty much any other world leader (or at least, world leader of consequence). – Trump is, perhaps, the perfect example of why demanding clear rules on social media and how they moderate is stupid. … But here’s the more important point – especially directed at the people who will falsely claim that this is somehow censorship: President Trump is not being censored. He is not being limited. At any moment of any day (certainly for the next two weeks, and likely beyond) he can walk out of his office and have every major TV news channel (and every internet streaming platform) broadcast whatever he wants to say, and people will see it.“

Parler CEO Says Service Dropped By ‚Every Vendor‘ And Could End His Business – Parler CEO John Matze said today that his social media company has been dropped by virtually all of its business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google ended their agreements with the social media service. – ‚Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,‘ Matze said today on Fox News.“


Signal & Threema vs WhatsApp

Signal Messenger: Ansturm neuer Nutzer überlastet Signals Anmeldesystem – Die neuen WhatsApp-Bedingungen veranlassen viele User zu einem Wechsel zu Signal. Kurzfristig war sogar dessen Verifizierungs-System überlastet. – Der verschlüsselnde Messenger Signal bekommt gerade viele neue User. Anlass ist, dass WhatsApp seine Nutzer dazu zwingt, das Teilen zusätzlicher Daten mit Facebook zu genehmigen. Vielleicht hat auch ein Tweet von Tesla-Gründer Elon Musk zu dem Zuwachs bei Signal beigetragen. Der Zulauf hat für kurze Zeit sogar Signals Anmeldeverfahren überlastet.“
