Throttling Down: How Twitter Stealth Censors Its Users

I would argue that the human mind has recently evolved to include the thinking process of social media as a whole. We’re connected to social media like a great hive mind. And thanks to scientific advances in datametrics, the social media companies now have almost perfect mind control technology. We connect to the hive mind, the social media giants decide who sees what messages, and they program us individually. You get different persuasion than I do.

I no longer have freedom of expression in the way that most of you still do because the social media platforms throttle my ideas. And you know why this isn’t the biggest story in the world?

This is why independent blogs and their authors are the better habit to develop.

And even those are hitting the curb as far as I'm concerned. Down to about 4-5 blogs I frequent and the weeding continues.

Everybody's talking about the same stuff for the most part.

Maybe after everybody has grown bored with Trump things will get better but I'm not betting on it.

Trumps like a white hot poker right up their collective asses and they ain't taking it sitting down and everybody is giving everybody else dry reach arounds with both hands.

Prison of the mind.

My dog ain't in this fight. Never frequented any of that stuff. Doubt I ever will. I tell my kids, if they want to get in touch, use the phone. They never do, but the offer is open.

I don't comment on any of those types of social media sites but I do on others.

So, are we being throttled here? lol

The only throttling going on here is the choking on the tears caused by my rage-infused laughter.
