Let's see if I can guess the points of view here and what we can see over the next 4 years.
Covid relief: Blows the debt and not worth it.
Covid in general: Government overreach.
Immigration policy: Amnesty.
Foreign policy: weak and caving to Iran and China. Turning back on Israel.
Domestic issues: follows the progressive point of view too much.
Unity message: bullshit and nothing he can say will change that.
Come now, Ptown. You shouldn't be exhibiting all of this negativity already.
Give Biden a chance to work his magic!

"We are going to have to figure out the OAN and Newsmax problem. These companies have freedom of speech, but I'm not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and such bringing them into tens of millions of homes," @alexstamos tells @brianstelter.— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) January 17, 2021
Former Facebook insider Alex Stamos tells @brianstelter: "We have to turn down the capability of these Conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences... There are people on YouTube for example that have a larger audience than daytime CNN." pic.twitter.com/gP0XtnjhCQ— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) January 17, 2021
So taking AOC's lead, CNN is now pushing for OAN and Newsmax to be taken off the air.
This is starting to get bad bad bad

I finally took the time to look up the tweet's that Twitter states are the reason it perm-banned Trump. I personally don't see what it is about the two tweets that they use as a reason, but perhaps some of the contrarians here can do the mental gymnastics it requires for the greater understanding.
They list their reasoning on the page, but ... I find it ... laughable.
We have tryouts coming up I'm very excited. If you are blue lives/all lives matter or a Trump supporter don't bother bringing your child. If we lose certain kids so be it. We will not be attending any events in Louisville. At some point Black folks need to stop selling out. pic.twitter.com/RQfkvRDnUt— Charles Williams (@MWTakeover) January 7, 2021
Don’t forget when big tech Justin silenced S&L.

Did ya'll scroll down and read the thread? I'm pretty sure I noted it was a thread.
While they are specifically detailing their reasoning as it pertains to Uganda, they are blind to the precedents that they have already set and now suddenly are opposed to.
Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.#UgandaDecides2021 #KeepItOn https://t.co/Q2SJfsFUiD

Pretty unbelievable. But not sure it's that hypocritical - very different trying to squash violent and dangerous rhetoric vs. blanket govt censorship.
Remember before the election with the NYPost came out with the Hunter Biden story and FB/Twitter throttled them and anybody else who tried to tweet the story out? During an election?
This tweet is a good rough outline
Sadly, you gave autocratic regimes a pass with your own behaviour. Do you recall shutting down the @nypost ? You have done enormous damage to the notion of open internet and lost moral authority to criticise regimes that are simply following your bad example.— Jude Byamukama (@Jbyam1) January 12, 2021
posted by gutBecause AOC said that about 1/2 of Congress was almost killed.
Also, when the hell did the leftwing radicals start caring about violence against police?
Oh and let's not forget that FB just suspended Ron Paul's ability to manage his account.
Ya'll saw AOC asking Apple and Google to go after others/do more, yes?
Also, Twitter Public Policy - after perm banning Trump and several other conservatives - just dropped this gem about an hour ago (thread):
Ahead of the Ugandan election, we're hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps.— Twitter Public Policy (@Policy) January 12, 2021
We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet.

Why shouldnt he be? Obama doesnt do anything to be admired for.
Despite the fact that Trump did some things that I'm not opposed to and the fact that I don't exactly admire Obama either... Admire?
I mean, I guess I could say that I admire his trolling tactics.

So Gallup says in one of their latest polls that Trump is more admired than Obama?
