The crackdown on wrongthink: be prepared.

The big tech oligarchs have seized the moment and are purging social media platforms. The Twaliban have been suspending pro-Trump accounts (including the US president himself) and FakeSpook are following suit and forcing a new user agreement on WhatsApp users allowing Zuck to harvest their private data. Google and Apple have removed alternative chat platform Parler from their app stores.

A better, more secure messaging platform called Signal should now be used by people who care about free speech and privacy. More info in this article from Wired.

It’s only a matter of time before the political-technical complex comes for the climate sceptics. WordPress has been a strong supporter of free speech, but even they are showing signs of being coerced to limit content. We’ll keep going with our work here at the Talkshop for as long as we are able to.
