The Internet’s Night of the Long Knives

Reddit, YouTube, and Twitch launched a massive deplatforming campaign last night. A huge number of accounts on these platforms were nuked. I’d tell you all who got it in the neck but the fact is, I don’t know who all was on Last Night’s List.

I do know that just about every big corporation you can name is applauding it. Skittles, Doritos, Johnson and Johnson, Pepsi, Verizon, Adidas, Denny’s, Clorox, Coke, Con-Agra Foods, Coca-Cola, and list goes on and on.

The ban-wave has hit and better than twenty-five thousand accounts have been purged. Twitch banned Trump’s official account.

All on the same day.

This is a clearly and obviously a coordinated action.

    May their failure be epic.
