Deplatforming Trump won't stop the big lie.

Former US president Donald Trump has now been kicked off of social media platforms from Facebook and Twitter to Pinterest. His suspension followed a violent insurrection on the Capitol in his name, and came months after Twitter had begun flagging hundreds of his posts for false statements about the election that he lost. But, as Platformer's Casey Newton explains, banning Trump was actually the easy part. Now tech platforms have a new problem: How do you combat misinformation when it's become bigger than any single user?
Casey Newton writes Platformer, a publication about the intersection of big tech and democracy:
Read more from Vox about how Trump's absence from Twitter and Facebook had near-immediate effects on the platforms:
And Recode's Peter Kafka on what Trump's deplatforming might mean for Trump and his supporters: is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines. Check out

  • I trust social media and media like Vox a lot less than political leaders. Why would I want them as the police? The regulation should not come from a third party, its not corporation s' job to guide our democracy. It's our job and the job of our government. So, Vox can simply shut up and let us 🇺🇸 do the work.

Instead of Twitter going ahead and fact checking Trump’s tweets back in 2019-2020ish they instead began fact checking ALL THE TWEETS made by any politician with over 100k followers. Would have given Republicans less of a reason to complain and make politicans in general more careful about what they post

  • Best part I saw in what I could bother to watch. going on about that 'one big lie', and pretending the problem is that people think the election was rigged [something that wasn't a problem to believe while the left screamed it for 4 years straight] rather than that there are flaws in the system that would CAUSE people to come to this idea that need to be looked at and fixed in order to solve. not just the same media who insisted the election was rigged in 2016 with no evidence now dismissing and belittling anyone who even considers there could have been foul play.

    • @Curlewsss Did they find that it had any actual tangible effect, or just in the same way that basically every major country does in sense of...they made their positions known, and it rarely has any notable impact, let alone provable impact? And that only supports the point that the problem is there are holes, and it's moronic to demonize those who don't trust the results now any more than the left didn't trust the results last election, because it's refusing to look at the fact there are issues and flaws that leave this as an actual thing to worry about. But plenty will insist ignore it...until your side loses, then pretend you care, till your side wins...them mock those who considered it possible. Which side is doing which role in any given cycle is easily predicted....which side won? The loser will be crying fraud, the winner will be mocking the idea it could ever happen...until they lose again and the roles reverse.

    Дмитрий ЕнинДмитрий ЕнинOy oldin
    • @Дмитрий Енин I alrady did. Freedeom of Speech is only violated when the governmont censors you. Private companies were never covered by that law. Freedom of speech is broken when you have absolutely no options and possibilities to express your opinion because the government forbids it. When a prviate company such as Facebook doesn't want a certain person on their website then it's their right to ban him. This has absolutely nothing to do with freedom of speech. To quote the Amendment of the freedom of speech. "Congress shall make no law..." In not a single word are private companies mentioned. And that's also the reason why facebook's actions were legal because no laws have been broken, including Freedom of speech. And as I said Trump had a press conference room in his house wehere he could have adressed the world anytime he wanted. I rally hope you understand this law now. This law can only be applied to the government.

    • @M. R lol well then tell me the definition of freedom of speech. or you can only write: Freedom of speech is not violated. Freedom of speech is not violated.

    • Freedom of speech has not been violated. A private company also has rights, you know. Your definition of freedom of speech is just wrong.

      M. RM. R24 kun oldin
    • @M. R what difference does it make from which side freedom of speech was violated? Government or American companies? I'm talking about the United States as a whole. In general, freedom of speech was violated, and it is foolish to deny it. Although it doesn't matter anymore. well done! They chose a president who could not even remember the name of the Minister of Defense whom he appointed.

      Дмитрий ЕнинДмитрий Енин25 kun oldin
    • Freedom of speech has not been taken away from him. He had literally a press conference room in his house where he could have adressed the world anytime he wanted. Freedom of speech only means the government can't forbid you to say what you want. This right has nothing to do with private companies. Freedom of speech does not mean that a private company is forced to give everyone a podium to speak on. If Facebook didn't want Trump on their website then it was their right to ban him. Freedom of speech has not been violated.

  • Well to be fair, a fair amount of things he said were not completely baseless. Not everything I agree with, but the man made a few solid points, and to ban people for that is quite the overreaction, and arguably overstepping boundaries. Again, not agreeing with everything the man said or did, but he definitely wasnt the devil he was made out to be.
