‘Like a Death Blow’: Facebook, Twitter Purge Destroys Free Speech, Tries to Kill Independent Media

from The Free Thought Project:

Facebook and Twitter have destroy thousands of livelihoods, wiped the independent media from their platforms, and dealt a death blow to free speech.

(RT) Some 800 anti-establishment accounts and pages have been yanked from Facebook in a sweeping crackdown the social media giant framed as a fight against spammers. RT talked to those who were targeted in the cleansing.

Among the hundreds of pages and accounts Facebook and Twitter took down were those both on the political left and right, ranging from conspiracy theorists and police brutality watchers, to news outlets with non-mainstream angles, While their content could be at times described as controversial, the bulk of the banished pages boasted large followings and outreach.
