What constitutes that reputation if not the views of “individual users” determining the fate of the platform?

I think you’re selling poeple short, and in the face of evidence contrary to your claims.

Looming regulatory threats will push any stock price down.

And I'm not selling people short. I think the risks are incredibly overstated and the people who appreciate free services (acknowledging some data sharing is happening) are not necessarily just dumb-dumbs being preyed upon.

It’s not a free service, it’s a surveillance platform that provides a paid service to advertisers.

So is Google. But the semantics are irrelevant.

The same Google covering its ass with $300 million to fight disinformation on its own platforms?

Yeah, that same one?

Is that what taking down videos that are conservative or critical of the government is called now?
