Twitter hates ideas and BLU is spying on you

Twitter hates ideas and BLU is spying on you

Plus, a 5 dollar device could hack your computer?


Today's Episode

Twitter hates ideas. This is a problem to me. I think the best of Twitter was they allowed people to express their ideas. It didn't matter if you were right, left, center, or didn't care. The problem is Twitter wants groupthink. It thinks that one political ideology is right. I think that if a business uses a free speech in their policies, they do thrive. However, private businesses do not have to follow a free speech model. Twitter needs to follow its own policy and only ban those that do terrible things. Disagreeing is not one.
