So at this point I think I’m crowdsourcing suggestions on how to get to the TED folks and bring him in there and make him answer the questions again? Or anywhere else he would be held accountable? (Kara Swisher from RECODE tried, but she couldn’t get him to answer questions.)
Since, you know, the Orange Squatter in the White House is inciting violence from his feed, WOC who are threatened by Cesar Sayoc before he is arrested for bomb threats and other terrorism are ignored by Twitter TOS Team when they report it (until it hits national news), the white nationalist domestic terrorists, several of whom are blue-checked, are emboldened by the Orange Rampage and the silence-enabling of their compatriots by the corporate heads of the social media companies letting them run rampant and escalating their threats against marginalized people, and … it’s more than a hypothesis that small-d democracy might well be at stake?
