    I say this with love for everyone risking their own live to help others. We have nursing students taking some of their classes on our campus. Many smart, sane,sensible people in the group. But also some of the flakiest, least sensible and just not very bright people too. They may be book smart enough and able to pass their classes, but some of them couldn't reason their way out of a paper bag. It doesn't surprise me that some of them make really lame decisions about their own health.

    My cousin is in the healthcare field and she just got her second round. She got the vaccine, as she put it "to protect others". I admire that.

    Facebook bans all 'stop the steal' content

    Facebook said Monday that it will begin removing any content that includes the phrase "stop the steal" from its platforms, expanding its efforts to limit the spread of election misinformation.

    The company two months ago removed the original group of the same name, which fueled voter fraud misinformation after the election.

    The move is part of the company's protective efforts against violence and misinformation in the lead-up to the presidential inauguration after last week's events on Capitol Hill, Guy Rosen, the company's vice president of integrity, and Monika Bickert, its vice president of global policy management, wrote in a company blog post.

    "We began preparing for Inauguration Day last year. But our planning took on new urgency after last week's violence in Washington, D.C., and we are treating the next two weeks as a major civic event," they wrote.

    "We are now removing content containing the phrase 'stop the steal' under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook and Instagram," they said.

    The company indefinitely banned President Donald Trump from posting on its platforms four days ago.

    Twitter says it booted 70,000 QAnon accounts after attack on Capitol

    Twitter said Monday that it suspended 70,000 accounts over the weekend in a purge focused on eliminating content associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory.

    In a blog post, Twitter said many of the suspensions involved a single person operating multiple accounts to amplify QAnon-associated content.

    Background: QAnon refers to those who follow “Q” — a mysterious internet figure who drops digital “crumbs” about a secret war Trump is allegedly waging against a cabal of pedophile political elites in Washington. Some of the group’s followers were involved in the riot last week at the U.S. Capitol, including Ashli Babbit, who died after being shot by a Capitol Police officer during the assault on Congress.

    The mass suspensions, among Twitter’s largest, are the second the company has taken against QAnon. In July, the microblogging site banned 7,000 accounts associated with the conspiracy and limited 150,000 others.

    Impact: The Twitter purge helps explain complaints this weekend by Republicans, who alleged that their numbers of followers were ebbing as major online platforms like Twitter sought to censor conservatives. Former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders, for example, said she lost 50,000 followers over the weekend. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo decried losing roughly 20,000 followers from his personal account and more than 36,000 from his official government account during the removals.

    Left wing activists hacked Parler and downloaded 99.9% of all the data (including deleted posts) along with the info tied to each post. Apparently Parler required DL, and SS# to sign up. It also tracked metadata, so theoretically all the posts and livestreams from the Capitol will be able to be tracked. Buuuuuurrrrrrnnnn.

    Just wait until all of these yahoos figure out that a federal offense means they'll have to turn in their guns. They were right. They would be coming for their guns. They just didn't realize that it would be their own stupidity that made it happen for real.

    In other news, Parler is fucked. They'll get sued every which way but Sunday by both government agencies and users.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/snapchat-trump-ban/

    Along with other popular social media platforms, Snap last week temporarily banned President Trump from its platform. The company is now blocking Mr. Trump's Snapchat account for good.


    "In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account," Snap said in a statement.

    The violent breach of the Capitol on January 6 by a mob of supporters of Mr. Trump, in which five people died, has led social media companies to examine their role in the spread of election falsehoods and other misinformation by the president and his administration.

    Snapchat, a messaging app that lets users post photos, videos and messages that appear momentarily before being made inaccessible, said it stopped promoting Mr. Trump's account in June after he continued to post what the company described as dangerous rhetoric inciting violence and hate. Users at the time could still view the president's "snaps," but only if they searched for, or subscribed to, the president's account, which remained active.


    Mr. Trump has since continued to violate Snapchat's guidelines dozens of times, according to the company. Snapchat, which has roughly 250 million daily users according to company data, said it removed each post and sent warnings to the president's social media team.

    The company said it is worried about being a conduit for spreading misinformation mainly because the platform's news feed is unmoderated, meaning anyone can broadcast falsehoods to a wide audience. Closing Mr. Trump's account was in the long-term interest of all Snapchat users, the company said.

    The Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment on Thursday.

    Cut off from social media
    Mr. Trump has lost access to the nation's leading social media platforms in the final days of his presidency, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said its block on Mr. Trump's account would remain in place through the end of the president's term — and potentially indefinitely. The restrictions include use of Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

    YouTube said this week that it had removed content from Mr. Trump's channel and that it has banned him from uploading any new videos or livestreams for at least a week. User comments on the president's channel have also been banned indefinitely by YouTube.


    In a series of tweets Wednesday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that banning Mr. Trump was the right decision, while acknowledging that doing so deals a blow to free speech. Mr. Trump had amassed nearly 90 million followers on his @realdonaldtrump Twitter account just before the ban.

    "Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation," Dorsey tweeted. "They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning and sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation."

    Some experts said major social media players' efforts to tamp down on misinformation will have an impact, but are unlikely to stamp out the conspiracy theories and hate that have run rampant on the internet.

    "We're going to see less opportunity to radicalize new people" on mainstream platforms, Kate Starbird, a leading misinformation expert at the University of Washington told the Associated Press. "But for those who are already radicalized, or already down the rabbit hole with conspiracy theories, this might not make a difference if the places they go become echo chambers."

    I call Bullshit on this one There is no fucking way Elon Musk wants to be boycotted from Tesla and SpaceX

    US President Donald Trump may have had his Twitter account permanently suspended, but his son is already out here looking for an alternative to help his dad out.

    In a recent Instagram video, Donald Trump Jr asked SA-born tech entrepreneur Elon Musk to help “save free speech”.

    “I am not looking for a conservative echo chamber. I want a platform to argue my ideas vs someone else’s and not just people in a place telling me what I want to hear. Elon, why don’t you do that? Get out there and come up with a concept. I think you are literally the guy to save free speech in America.”

    Elon has not yet responded to the request, but Trump Jr's request has sparked fierce debate on social media.

    Musk recently endorsed messaging app Signal, amid concerns about WhatsApp's new privacy policy. The app is known for its stringent security and privacy settings.

    Twitter on Friday deleted new tweets posted by Trump on the official US presidency account and suspended the account of his presidential campaign.

    The company said accounts used by Trump to try to get around the ban could face permanent suspension, under its “ban evasion” policies.

    “Twitter is not about free speech,” Trump wrote on the presidency's account, hinting at possibly building his own social media platform in the near future.

    Trump has been banned from several other social media platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, after his supporters stormed the US Capitol last week.

    Gab seems to know how to get people talking.

    The social media platform, which is seen as an alternative to Twitter, sent out a cryptic tweet early Tuesday that showed a picture of a satellite in Earth’s orbit.

    “Call me, Elon,” is written in green and the text reads, “It needs to happen. @ElonMusk.”

    Emails from Fox News to Musk’s lawyer and Tesla were not immediately returned, but the post stirred debate online on what the potential could be if the world’s second-richest man—worth about $172 billion—decided to enter the social media game.

    Musk responded to Big Tech’s recent crackdown on President Trump and his supporters in a tweet that read, “A lot of people are going to be super unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech.”

    FOX Business reported that Musk once called out Amazon for reportedly censoring the publication of a book about the coronavirus.

    Gab did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for comment.
