Now big tech goes after Signal.

Writing a daily blog piece appears to have something in common with commenting on blogs – as soon as you hit publish, an interesting news item comes along. I’d barely published Friday’s piece about Facebook stabbing WhatsApp users in the back by changing the terms of agreement to allow them to harvest all your personal data you’ve put on WhatsApp, and along it came. As of Saturday, 40 million users worldwide had closed their account with them, but Lord knows what it’s risen to by now.
Ordinary people appear to be wising up to big tech, though that savage number of people actually quitting the platform I think reflects not only the broken promise of Facebook not to rape your data on WhatsApp, but also the backlash against big tech’s part in installing the Biden regime in DC.
Pretty soon, being on any big tech platform will not only be seen as undemocratic but nearly an unpatriotic act of collaboration with the regime’s puppet masters.
Don’t these Google and Apple owned stores remind you of the company stores in the bad old days for the working man? The only store in the mining town. You can get everything you need but it’ll be at their price and if you can’t afford it, they’ll let you run a tab and subtract the interest every week from your company paycheck.
