Social media companies allow government contractors to impersonate people. And the bigger problem is that governments impersonate people on social media. Government (at least the U.S. government) cannot legally do that without a warrant, so they hire major third party prime contractors to do it for them. Lip service by Congress to punish social media companies does not approach the real crimes or thugs.
Government is out of control, and these social media outlets are symptoms of that. Social media censorship IS government censorship and theft of your privacy. Governments (NSA in the case of U.S.A.) capture all of your electronic information, permanently, every electronic transaction, photo, phone call, email, text message, cell phone location, etc. which they can and will use against you when they want. Just need to know the right politically-connected people to unmask the information. It is a morally sick and repugnant mentality.
FBI instigates riots at the U.S. capitol and then “rioters” are hunted down and arrested, held without their due process rights … now for almost a year, gassed in their jail cells, and beaten by their jailers, because it suits some politicians who no doubt supported the instigation. But, other riots which burned businesses and towns, and killed police, went on for months, a political instrument of Democrats against President Trump, and those arrested were released and had access to free legal counsel, funded in part by Democrats including the person occupying the office of U.S. vice president.
Andrew McCabe, an attorney, Deputy Director of the FBI, conspired with others inside the government to defeat and remove a sitting U.S. president, Trump, and leaked information about an FBI probe into the Clinton Foundation, all intended to impeach President Trump with false information, then lied to Congress multiple times. He was fired by President Trump, but the government under Biden / i.e. U.S. tax payers paid his legal fees, and rather than be punished under the law, McCabe is released under Biden, his record cleared, he is given full retirement and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Full-on treason by a conspiracy including a top director of the FBI who walks away rewarded by the U.S. taxpayers. https://nypost.com/2021/10/17/doj-plays-politics-in-letting-andrew-mccabe-escape-punishment/
The same FBI raided in full military SWAT the home of the CEO of Project Veritas, who was handcuffed and charged with no crime, to retrieve a diary of Joe Biden’s daughter. Meanwhile, the so-called U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) continues to use taxpayer money to defend assistant U.S. Attorney General Rob Rosenstein, former FBI official Shawn Henry and a former Secret Service agent who are being sued for spying on journalist Sharyl Attkisson. It appears to be a slam-dunk case against these government operators, and the Secret Service agent who is a defendant in the case wants the crimes exposed. https://sharylattkisson.com/2020/05/attkisson-v-doj-and-fbi-for-the-government-computer-intrusions-the-definitive-summary-2/
The same government has hounded for years Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for transparently telling people of the world about these despicable, contemptible practices which are occurring and often coordinated across multiple governments. They have been telling people about government acts that people need to know and have a right to know. Government is unable to fix itself.
Governments are intimidating citizens, even a sitting U.S. president and his senior advisors, using every means available to remove freedom of speech. And of course most governments are duty bound to protect freedom of speech. This problem is not limited to the U.S. government.
