Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News, A lobbyist group is suing Apple in an effort to get free speech messaging platform Telegram removed from the app store, claiming that it allows ‘extremists’ to spread ‘hate speech’. Telegram has seen a surge in users since Twitter and Facebook permanently suspended President Trump.
I just logged in to my Telegram account, for the first time in a long time, because of the rampant censorship issues on social media. There are a lot of new groups that I had interacted with on twitter that are now using Telegram. How long will it take for big tech to ban Telegram from the internet a la Parler?
This isn’t a social media platform, this is an instant messaging service. This is not a censorship issue, this is a “Killing the Competition” issue.
