As I’ve said before, the attempt to censor conservatives will just result in a bypass arising that lets folks continue to post their views, while leaving the censoring platforms. (So Twitter, YouTube and Facebook can create competition to take approximately 1/2 their business. Shareholders take note.)
I’ve posted many links to “Timcast” videos. He’s a ‘slightly left’ person who is also a free speech advocate. He’s also “mixed race” (IIRC mom was Korean). Yet he is starting to get the same “treatment” handed out to conservative voices. For that reason, he has “diversified” his platform to include “minds.com” and regularly asks folks to check him out there. Well, I finally go around to it.
I’ll continue to post the YouTube video links, just because Woodpress lets me post them for free but I have to buy an upgrade to do other videos. This site looks like an alternative to Gab.ai as a ‘talk space’. Lots of folks have links to their YouTube videos, so this looks more like a Facebook or Twitter alternative.
BUT, more of my viewing & reading time is moving to “other platforms”. Now to include Minds.

The EU voted to create a database of biometric information of over 300 million EU and non-EU persons. The US wants to implement a biometric exit system in airports, and researchers figured out how to trick object-recognition cameras.

Bernie Sanders has agreed to participate in a town hall event on Fox News, and instead of praising him for discussion across ideology, supposed watchdog Media Matters is ripping him for normalizing Fox. New video:
Are there others? Oh yeah… More than I can research at the moment. Here’s a partial list from the first page of DuckDuckGo search (speaking of bypass… I don’t use Google any longer):

Introduction to Peer-To-Peer Software and Networks Search domain www.lifewire.com/p2p-networking-and-software-818019https://www.lifewire.com/p2p-networking-and-software-818019 Many businesses have been inspired by the success of P2P applications and are busily brainstorming potentially interesting new P2P software. However, some in the networking community believe that the success of Napster, Kazaa and other P2P applications have little to do with technology and more to do with piracy. PeerSoN: P2P social networking - dl.acm.org Search domain dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1578010https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1578010 To address privacy concerns over Online Social Networks (OSNs), we propose a distributed, peer-to-peer approach coupled with encryption. Moreover, extending this distributed approach by direct data exchange between user devices removes the strict Internet-connectivity requirements of web-based OSNs.

Social peer-to-peer processes - Wikipedia Search domain en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_peer-to-peer_processes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_peer-to-peer_processes Social peer-to-peer processes are interactions with a peer-to-peer dynamic. These peers can be humans or computers. Peer-to-peer (P2P) is a term that originated from the popular concept of the P2P distributed computer application architecture which partitions tasks or workloads between peers.
Pretty clear that attempting to have Central Control on Speech and Thought just causes the creation of the undergound bypass. The People To People channel always rises. Be it by passing mimeographs or word of mouth or phone to phone, or new P2P Social Networks. “The bits will flow”.
