Not satisfied with interfering with elections, destroying competitors and silencing free speech, Twitter and Facebook are apparently concerned that people are getting around their speech/thought control efforts by putting out their own newsletters. So both tech giants are reportedly trying to take those over, too. Twitter just acquired the newsletter platform Revue, and Facebook is planning its own newsletter “tools” for journalists and writers.
Why am I reminded of “Star Wars’” Admiral Ackbar: “It’s a trap!” Once newsletter creators get used to the benefits, how long will it be before they start seeing their content censored, their readers spied on, or get taken offline if they dare say something unapproved by Silicon Valley’s leftist thought police?
Thanks anyway, Mark and Jack, but I think I’ll keep sending my newsletter by email and posting at my own website, www.mikehuckabee.com.
