Apple Threatening to Deplatform Twitter Unless It Begins Censoring People The Way Gay-and-Trans Crazy Apple Demands;
Musk Threatens to Release All the Dirty Laundry of Twitter's Previous Internal Censorship Discussions


Liz Wheeler
@Liz_Wheeler

I predicted this the day @ElonMusk said he was gonna buy Twitter. Woke Apple *has* to deplatform Twitter because free speech is an existential threat to Marxism. The left doesn't "fight for the marginalized." The left are Marxists. Proud of Elon for refusing to bend a knee.

Apple has been using its monopolist leverage to force a lot of people to execute its preferred censorship policies -- possibly in collusion with the US government.

Stephen Green:

Apple threatened at least one developer with banishment from the company's lucrative App Store if they didn't remove all search engine returns regarding COVID-19 from their library application.

LBRY bills itself as "an open, free, and fair network for digital content," designed to circumvent social media and government controls. But the company told Twitter owner and CEO Elon Musk on Monday that, "During Covid, Apple demanded our apps filter some search terms from being returned. If we did not filter the terms, our apps would not be allowed in the store."

The Twitter Files on free speech suppression soon to be published on Twitter itself. The public deserves to know what really happened...

Update: Musk tweeted the above meme. CNN freaked out.

Sure, but they can play whack-a-mole all the live long day if they are motivated enough, and remaining in complete control of the narrative is very important to these people.

So pretty much Musk will have to develop his own phone, but even still, if the power that be want you to abide, you will abide or you will be destroyed.

46 This is why the fight for "free speech" is utter folly. We MUST fight to silence and otherwise subjugate the commies on every possible front, or they will use our precious rights against us, just like they've done for a hundred years.

Speech can never be free as long as commies speak freely. It would be like giving the dark the right to encroach on light because the dark has a right to exist too. If darkness and light worked like that, the world would be be plunged into blindness forever.

104 The Apple App Store takes a 30% cut of all apps sold there. IIRC, it's only been very recently possible to circumvent it. The problem that most players have is that they don't have the ability to obtain the infrastructure to handle those orders independently.

TWTR does have that capability, however. And they're visible enough that people would go to their homepage and get it - even to the extent that TWTR could even provide the jailbreak instructions to circumvent the wall. I don't see AAPL following through on this this.

There are so many holes in Brinton's story, it's hilarious.

He claimed he grabbed the checked bag by accident. He didn't check a bag that flight. He claimed he panicked when he discovered it wasn't his, so he left it in his room. The charging doc says all the clothing was missing from the bag.

A normal person would have simply called the airline and told them about the mistake. Someone like Brinton could have called legal at his office or any number of other legal advisors if he were nervous about the political or legal fallout.

You know, that's a good question. Normally a "transvestite" is a heterosexual who enjoys dressing as the opposite sex. So what the hell is a non-binary transvestite? You don't have a gender, so there is no opposite. Or does Brinton consider having a gender an opposite to being, "non-binary?" So dressing as either a man or a woman being a "transvestite?"

Seriously, don't bother trying to apply logic to these various self-identifiers -- there are so many contradictions built into it. . . which is probably the point. Force you to say there is no biological sex while also being non-binary gender fluid and gay, all of which is based on there being two distinct biological sexes.

I don't think this is technically possible. If you want to be on iOS, you have to be on the App Store and have your app cryptographically signed by Apple. The only other option is to turn on developer mode on your phone and side-load the app. This process is out of the control of someone who wants to create a different app market. So Musk could host the apps, and he could post instructions on how to side load the app, but he can't create something that seamlessly integrates into the phone like the App Store does.

>>But my approach would not be a phone it would be an app market that works for everyone.

Android and Apple are closed gardens if they don't want you in their garden they can prevent you from playing in their gardens.

Again, the only thing that could alter this would be anti-trust action from the DOJ or legislation from congress.

I don't see this happening in either the short or long term.

177 I don't think this is technically possible. If you want to be on iOS, you have to be on the App Store and have your app cryptographically signed by Apple.

It is but it would take an anti-monopoly lawsuit to stamp out the blockade both phones have made on their products. I mean its practically begging to be done already. This is like a car company telling you that you cannot put your own stereo in the car: not approved, have to go through our store.

201 > Their value proposition was "hey, don't you really want a phone just as shitty as your PC?" I suspect that a value prop of freedom from censorship is a bigger winner. Not that you aren't right that it would be tough to crack the phone duopoly.

The biggest complaint I heard from Windows Phone users wasn't anything about the phone or the OS. The most common complaint was the lack of apps for the platform. Even the apps that were on the platform were the neglected step-child version.

MyFitnessPal for example had a bug for over a year where scanning a barcode to input a food would cause the app to lock up. This is a core functionality of the app, and MFP didn't think it was important enough to fix. If barcode scanning was broken on MFP on iPhone, it would have been fixed in a day or less.

258 > Yeah its sad. Search engines used to be a wonderful aid for getting places on the internet. Now its a struggle to get what you need. And most people look at you like you have two heads if you note that they're hiding some results from you.

1000% true. A couple of years after Google got big, their search engine was like witchcraft compared to the other search engines. The top one or two results were exactly what you were searching for. Most people don't remember what it was like. Any search, no matter how bland, was half pr0n sites on the first page. The other half were crappy search engine trickery pages that had a hundred popular search terms hidden in the page header.

Try searching Google for anything about Covid or a positive story about a Republican politician. All the results are either zero covid propaganda, CNN, Salon, MSNBC, or whatever.

>>I started with Apple because hackers basically ignored their operating system. I think that time has passed.

As a 29 year old, involved for most of my life in a technical and engineering capacity and having used pretty much every computer platform that has existed in the last 40 years, I've stayed with apple for two very basic reasons.

1. The OS is essentially a UNIX/Linux operating system.

2. And most importantly, the essential look and feel of the OS hasn't changed in 40 years.

The apple menu is still on top, the menu system still is the same, preferences is still the same, etc.

You can take someone who cut their teeth on system 1 and put them on the latest OS and they should have no trouble navigating the OS.

There are three reasons someone does an ad series like they did:

1) Irony, to poke fun at pretentious ads
2) Idiots who didn't notice how awful it is
3) On purpose: they know their customer base and this is what they like and want to see.

My money is on 3.

I remember what it was like. Yes, it was usually like that, but it was also possible for users to manipulate the results. If you searched “French military victories” and clicked “I’m Feeling Lucky”, it would take you to a page on Albino BlackSheep listing French military failures. If you did the same with “miserable failure” it went to George W. Bush’s official website. (This was back when the lulz-obsessed Internet trolls were still nominally left-wing, before some day in 2014 when we all woke up and the same people were suddenly misogynist neo-Nazis.)
