|Reddit, Twitch, Shopify, Discord Ban Donald Trump by GameGod(m): 3:43am On Jan 09|
The permanent Twitter suspension came a few hours after Reddit announced it was taking down the massively popular subreddit r/Donaldtrump. Other social platforms that have gone after Trump accounts in the days following the attack on the Capitol are Twitch and Snapchat (where his accounts have been disabled), Shopify (which took down online stores affiliated with the president), Facebook and Instagram (which banned Trump posting for 'indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks'), YouTube (which is 'accelerating' its hunt for videos spewing voter fraud claims). Axios reported Friday that TikTok is also 'removing content violations and redirecting hashtags like #stormthecapitol and #patriotparty to its community guidelines.
“Reddit’s site-wide policies prohibit content that promotes hate, or encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence against groups of people or individuals. In accordance with this, we have been proactively reaching out to moderators to remind them of our policies and to offer support or resources as needed,” a Reddit spokesperson tells The Verge. “We have also taken action to ban the community r/donaldtrump given repeated policy violations in recent days regarding the violence at the US Capitol.”https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/8/22220834/reddit-trump-subreddit-ban-violence-us-capitol-mob
In a statement Thursday, a Twitch rep said, “In light of yesterday’s shocking attack on the Capitol, we have disabled President Trump’s Twitch channel. Given the current extraordinary circumstances and the President’s incendiary rhetoric, we believe this is a necessary step to protect our community and prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence.” Trump’s Twitch account will be disabled at least through the end of his presidential term this month.https://variety.com/2021/digital/news/twitch-bans-donald-trump-1234880811/
“Shopify does not tolerate actions that incite violence,” the company said in a statement. Actions by the president “violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which prohibits promotion or support of organizations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence. As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump.”https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/7/22218776/shopify-trump-store-disable-campaign-ecommerce-sites-capitol
Google pulls Parler from Play Store for fostering calls to violence
Apple Threatens to Ban Parler From App Store as Twitter Bans Donald Trump: Apple has given conservative social network Parler 24 hours to implement a full moderation plan and remove objectionable content or face a permanent ban from the App Store, reports BuzzFeed News.https://www.macrumors.com/2021/01/08/apple-parler-app-store-ban-possible/
"We can confirm that earlier today we locked President Trump’s Snapchat account,” Snap spokeswoman Rachel Racusen said in a statement. Mr Trump would not be able to share new content until the company lifts the restriction, which was implemented before he sent out the infamous video addressing the rioters.https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/snapchat-trump-ban-capitol-riot-b1783861.html

Nawa o.. Be like na 2go Trump go finally settle for o, as e dey be.. ..
But on a serious note, we need decentralized social media platforms built on the blockchain technology. Platforms that are transparent and focus on users' freedom: like users having total control of their data without fear of it being sold to third-party organizations; like users having rights to their privacy; like users having freedom over their Contents - right to add, delete, edit their contents without restrictions and without being subjected to the strict rules of the owners of these platforms, etc.. These advantages far outweigh the disadvantages..
"Decentralized" platforms like Steemit, Relevant and Vid are capable of disrupting their centralized rivals like Facebook, Twitter Reddit, etc.. But we need them to be completely decentralized for this decentralized revolution to be successful... Hopefully, Nairaland will be decentralized in the future..
Back to Donald Trump... I suggest he use Telegram or Signal.. Especially Signal.. A platform recently recommended by Elon Musk himself..
But left for me, I suggest he should use one of the decentralized platforms... It'll make the decentralized platform and the blockchain technology even more popular..
The FUTURE is in DECENTRALIZATION.. The future is BLOCKCHAIN..
God bless the blockchain technology...
God bless science and technology.
God bless decentralization.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
My brother, decentralization doesn't mean absence of moderation. The node runners/people will moderate.. Once there's a consensus, there'll be moderation. That's democracy, lol. No single person go get the sole right to delete wetin em no like. It'll be based on consensus, democracy!
God bless Nigeria.
Nawa o.. See how Nigerians dey behave? Because of him hatred for Buhari, this my beloved brother refuse to support humanity. E go better.
Thanks, my beloved brother. But I am not very intelligent o. Just someone wey like tech small..
God bless us all..
Thanks, my beloved brother.. Pardon the cancellation biko.. I still never reach that level yet. Still trying to.
May God bless us all..

The future isnt any of the stuff you mentioned.
The future is stop accepting seed cash from all these venture capitalists, they are controlled by a group of people you can't criticize.
These people can also takeover decentralised platforms

My brother, while nothing is absolutely perfect, some may be way better.. In this case, decentralized blockchains are way better than centralization..
Now, talking about "these people taking over decentralized platforms", well, that's oxymoronic because decentralized blockchains deal directly with "person to person"(it's hosted by as many people as possible, NOT on a centralized server) NO THIRD PARTY involved. Once there's a third party or centralized owner, then it's not a decentralized blockchain platform. However, due to the complexity in achieving a truly decentralized system, a semi or quasi-decentralized system can be used instead. This means it's half centralized and half decentralized, exactly what majority of the decentralized platforms are. Steemit for example.. I talked about it in my post above.. But what we need is a completely decentralized platform built on the blockchain technology. This will make it nearly impossible for any single entity to hijack..
By decentralization, it means HASH POWER is evenly distributed and not concentrated in the hands of a few, like Bitcoin currently is. But that's for the proof-of-work consensus algorithm.. There are various consensus algorithms that can be utilized to produce something truly decentralized..
However, even at that (in the case of quasi-decentralization), it's still FAR BETTER THAN CENTRALIZATION!
God bless Nigeria.

I understand decentralization but you still need money for the system to work.
|Re: Reddit, Twitch, Shopify, Discord Ban Donald Trump by SilverNorGold(m): 8:41am On Jan 09|
My brother, decentralized blockchains don't necessarily need money to start. All you need are volunteers, that's why they (blockchains) are mostly open source. In fact, MOST are run by volunteers.. They are popularly known as the PEOPLE'S PROJECTS.. Owned by the people, run by the people, etc.. A kinda DEMOCRACY (not the America flawed type.. lol)..
I have supported some blockchain projects for free.. So it's possible to build something like that without IPO or ICO or STO or any form of fundraising... Bitcoin for instance .. Developers work for free..
That's DECENTRALIZED BLOCKCHAIN for you, my beloved brother. It's proudly owned and run by the people. Nobody is paid to market Bitcoin. The people freely do. Most are not paid to develop Bitcoin(the few paid are paid by whales). The people freely do.. Nobody is paid to list Bitcoin on exchanges. The people freely do. (WHO WAN PAY THEM? NO CENTRALIZED OWNER! .. Unless wealthy investors aka whales sponsor the dev) In other words, different people from different walks of life make contributions, based on their experiences. It's a family project. That's the beauty of a truly decentralized system.
God bless us all.

To the many deluded Trump supporters who are so convinced that the presidential election was rigged, can you explain why all the relevant law enforcement bodies and even judges appointed by Trump didn't find the election fraudulent and went as far throwing the matter out from state courts to federal courts even in Supreme Court?
Can you explain why even notable Republican Politicians don't agree with Trump on this?
Can you explain why the law enforcement agencies called the election the most secured and credible in US history?
Can you explain why many of Trump's aids are resigning?
Can you also explain why Mike Pence don't agree with Trump on Trump's bogus claims, hence Pence honourably didn't take advantage of his position and power to flip the election on Trump's side at the congress despite Trump's pressure privately and publicly?
Can you explain why the two Republican Senatorial aspirants lost again in Georgia despite the fact that Trump campaigned for them. Wasn't that enough proof that there wasn't any rigging from the onset.
Pls explain in simplest terms without bogus claims and presumptive links.

Reason why it's bad to allow monopoly in social media environs... Most of this platform are owned by 1 or 2 persons.
