Apple Threatens to Deplatform Twitter, as I Predicted 3 days ago
It was actually not a difficult prediction
Three days ago, I posted this:
And now this:
Apple will not tell us why, but I know: the people behind Apple and Google cannot survive if free speech is allowed to flourish.
This brings back a much older prediction of mine:
Elon is NOT Backing Off
The Twitter Files on free speech suppression soon to be published on Twitter itself. The public deserves to know what really happened …
They will NOT give up without a fight! And they MIGHT win.
Will they win? What do you think?
apple is getting absolutely dragged on twitter today because, wait for it, they turned off a set of key collaboration tools used by protesters in china ahead of the protests (that included iphone factories) because the government asked them to.
they are not used to people getting to hear about things like this.
old twitter helped them suppress it.
i suspect they are bristling in response.
i'd be surprised to see them do it. they are already in trouble this Q and banning twitter would cause significant defections.
and you can just use it as a web ap from your phone anyway. it's not like parler where they needed to kill a growing user base.
and musk will get a sideload out.
And so the sorting begins. Now is the time to pick which side of history to be on if you haven't already.
