I have been closely looking at the social media platforms (and their half hearted attempts for regulation). I cannot obviously comment on the legal merits to “break them open” and after a certain presidential candidate withdrew from the race, the issue has been sidelined or side stepped. The global PR machinery is more powerful than a blog trying to write about them. Conversely a paper.
The opening statement (and argument) is effusive and sets the tone. There are political undertones (and nuances) which I wish to avoid.
It is there platform. Their choice on how they wish to implement the rules (or interpret them) and balance out the narrative in the way they deem it appropriate.
