There is more to the world than Facebook and Twitter. The social media world that is. I have deleted my account with Twitter because they are anti-free speech. Personally, I feel that social media should be, by law, brought under the auspices of the 1st Amendment and free speech rights guaranteed there by the government. When Twitter suspended then banned James Woods, that was it for me.
I’m very concerned that Facebook might follow the same path. And if there is one thing I have, it’s conviction. If Facebook does, I’ll be leaving there as well. I’m not talking Alex Jones, that guy brings his own troubles on. But people like James Woods? No. He has a right to speak and I expect my social media to let him be heard.
This is why I’ve opened up another social media account, a Facebook alternative just in case.
MeWe is a social media site much like Facebook, but they’ve promised to protect the rights of free speech.
I’m a conservative, but I’d be doing the same if they were banning Bill Maher. Why? Because this country is built on a diversity of ideas and it’s up to us all to take a stand to preserve that.
I’ll be looking for a Twitter replacement next. I may have already left Twitter, but I have no intention of leaving Facebook unless they go the Twitter route.
Just keeping you all informed.
Also: Book 7 in the Dark Seas Series is nearing first draft completion. I will be writing the final few chapters this week and over the weekend, then it’s just a matter of getting them to the critique group.
