    It'll be like 1950s America - a roaring success.

    I can't wait until all the RADICALLEFTWINGSOCIALISTCOMMIEFASCISTTFREESPEECHH8RZ don't turn up and the all the Trumpanzees abandon the site when they have nobody to 'dunk on'.

    I understand Facebook are changing it's name from Facebook to TRUTH

    As I noted in the other Trump thread, one of the T&C's of the site is that you're not allowed to disparage the site or its owners (ie. Trump).

    Interesting name for it. Who said that Americans don't get sarcasm?

    As predicted more and more social media channels will inevitably pop up and take audience share, thus there was never any reason to whinge about 'muH cenSorShIp' on the privately owned servers of the core social media companies.

    It was just angry basement **** all along, salty about having been banned for breaking terms they themselves agreed to.

    Thinking there was a violation of their human rights because they got banned from private property for constant conspiracy trolling, and regular calls for genocide. Then going full tin foil with theories that only 2 social media companies will forever own the market, and that supreme courts should be ploughing ahead full steam, constitutions changed, all because they got banned for saying ngr.

    The main thing for trump is getting in donations - this will be another channel for that aim



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,069 ✭✭✭ timmyntc


    In fairness, 2 companies do overwhelmingly own the market. Its effectively a duopoly, especially seeing as big acquisitions seem to be permitted despite the monopoly worries (Facebook buying instagram, whatsapp, etc)

    Then there was the fact that payment processors (Visa, Mastercard) refused to allow transactions to some of these new competing sites (Gab maybe? Or parler?) - what then, build your own payment processor?

    There is definitely a time when a company becomes too big for anyone to compete, when that happens they need to be regulated very well to ensure they dont abuse their position.

    The problem with the Trump supporters is they are so embedded within Facebook and all the conspiracy and right wing pages within it they might pop over to Trumps site for a bit but will keep gravitating back to Facebook - Facebook is where it's all still happening.

    But the GOP in America have long been the party of unfettered corporatism and only now are they moaning about it because their president tried to foment a fascist uprising. Corporate power will continue to be a problem unless people stop playing politics with it and recognize that corporations need to be both regulated and taxed.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    I wonder where their servers will be, and I'm not just saying this for a pithy "LOLRUSSIA" comment.

    I've got my money on some random Floridian swampland.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,069 ✭✭✭ timmyntc


    I agree - both sides have allowed a situation to unfold where corporations have more power than government essentially. Although we always knew that american politicians were basically corporate representatives with the amount of lobbying that goes on, now its gotten to a stage where a handful of big tech companies can shape the public perception and censor stuff that hurts their bottom line, or people who might threaten them.

    Like most things, the Americans have to go bigger and more abhorrent to ruin it for everyone.

    It's not both sides. The GOP are the ones who repealed the fairness doctrine which might have been adapted to include social media companies. One party created the culture of turning news into propaganda and entertainment and now they're not in control of the narrative, corporate power is suddenly a bad thing. Typical.

    Do they actually put any thought into these things? (no need to answer we know the answer)

    His case in Florida is still to be heard afaik with regards to his whinge about getting back onto the other platforms but he is doing exactly what he was whinging about.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,324 ✭✭✭ Shebean


    He'll make a fortune off the overly suspicious and gullible...as long as no Trump is running it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 621 ✭✭✭ Relax brah


    Hes gearing up for the 2024 campaign, if the website goes ahead then don’t be surprised if he walks that election
