Twitter starts closing dormant accounts and gets a "backlash" (seems to be one person) where one account is someone who has died.
So now they're going to start hosting dead people's accounts which it turns out Facebook already does.
How far do they intend taking this? In thirty years they could find out that dead users outnumber live ones; will they then keep them rolling like some massive virtual graveyard?
What would be the point and, more pertinently for them, where is the profit?
Foreign powers revealed to be using social media to subvert UK democracy - BREXIT, Corbyn, Scottish Independence.By The Masked Tulip
This story was quietly released over the Bank holiday weekend and has got next to no mainstream UK Press coverage - mainly because it goes against the apparent agenda and highlights what naive, gullible fools lots of UK media folk are.
I think this is pretty major.
It is basically Facebook admitting, by closing down some 600 plus pages, groups and accounts, that a foreign power, in this case Iran, has been using social media to influence opininion on several matters key to the unity and security of the UK - namely BREXIT, Scottish Independence and with positive media for one Jeremy Corbyn. Israel, and UK opinion of Israel, is also mentioned but you have to wonder whether this also includes the big rise of anti-semitism on UK social media.
Not a dicky bird from the UK mainstream media about this. If it had been, for example, pro-Trump stuff then you can imagine the hysteria.
But this is OUR country and this suggests that a foreign power, Iran, was interfering in our internal politics.
So why no mainstream coverage?
Why aren't the likes of the So-Called BBC, Sky News, etc, screaming hell about this? Why aren't our politicians? Are any of them even aware that this happened?
Well, our mainstream media seems to focus on breaking up the UK as a good thing. It is also, IMPO, increasingly pro muslim and anti-Israel/Jewish people. No need to say anything about BREXIT. Then there is Corbyn.
Does this Facebook story simply highlight something much bigger going on in the UK with how public opinion is shaped and presented? I suspect it does.
Look at the almost hourly row in the US about possible Russian use of social media to influence the last US election. Then consider how this story about the UK got pushed out on a wet bank holiday weekend, was given virtually no coverage and then was buried.
Facebook Shuts Down Iran-Linked Pages Attacking Brexit and Israel, Backing Corbyn and Scottish Separatists
This is a huge story. It should have had massive coverage. You have to ask yourselves why not.
