how are they silencing opinions?
in my view, everybody gets an isolated slice of opinions perfectly catered to them, which isn't good, but it's not silencing any opinion. it's just amplifying them too much to a specific subset of users.


could you give an example of "hate speech" that somebody was fired for?
i don't think we should be firing people for their opinions in general, but if it's blatantly racist/sexist/bigoted i see no problems.

Chinese apps are way worse.


If you do something that's a punishable offence in china, you can be affected by it. Criticising china's way of censoring free speech will affect you. Criticising china on how china handled the covid situation horribly will affect you. Chinese apps aren't trustworthy and never will be more than American apps


as far as i know you can still shit on china if you're not a public figure/event.
i think recently there was some vague law that allowed china to prosecute anyone in the world, but iirc that would only affect you if you are going to china.



none of this is good, but to pretend like any one of us is gonna face china's wrath is a little dramatic imo.




also, how did china handle it horribly? it seems to me they got that shit contained in a matter of weeks.


iirc there's only 2 possible areas of critique:
- there was some delay in china reporting the gene sequencing of the novel coronavirus
- people have known for a while that china's meat markets are a petri dish for such diseases


the second one i wouldn't say is really related to the 'handling of the covid situation'.
piece of shit

They also sell your data to the government to use, so if you live here... you should absolutely trust Chinese software over US software.

Yeah we should totally trust the great communism machine known as China. China already has all of our info, it's too late, and as we speak China is committing what can only be described as the modern holocaust on Uighur Muslims. I'm not surprised you would say something like this though, at this point I feel like you have to be trolling or you have some serious problems.

There are plenty of us leftists who want to take away power from the US government who get silenced for it.

Well yeah... legitimate hate speech is awful and shouldn't be tolerated. Being ultra racist on a public platform can very obviously affect your life outside of social media.

Primarily insanely bigoted opinions... I'm not crying over it.

This just isn't true for the vast majority of US citizens. When is the last time the CCP fucked with you personally??

The operative phrase here is in China. If you're in the west, it just doesn't affect you personally at all, which is the point I'm making.

I didn't say we should blindly trust Chinese companies... I just said that if you're in the US, you should be much more worried about US companies. I'm well aware that they're committing genocide over there. Do you really think they used the data of US users to help them commit genocide...? How would that even work?? Also yeah China just simply isn't communist. They're an interesting combination of fascist and capitalist.

Chinese data thievery is much more concerning than American. Americans will just use that data to advertise to you. Nobody knows what the Chinese government intend to do with your American data.
