What Shiva is to Mansarovar, tech entrepreneurs are to Silicon Valley. They have created it, they run it on their whims and fancies, and they are not answerable to anyone. They also have the big desire to make the world a more liberal place.
Quite an irony
The champions of free speech ban what they don't like
Now, you will ask - what is wrong if world becomes more liberal? Hold this thought.
Let's first hear it from the Dorsey's mouth. Previously, he said Twitter employees with conservative views don't feel safe in "expressing themselves". And, by his own admission, Twitter has more left leaning employees than right.
Now, imagine these employees writing algorithms/protocols to ban accounts, label tweets as hate speech, or flag the content inappropriate.
Do you think those algorithms are unbiased then? Exactly!
Make no mistake: Their agenda is far sinister
Yet, biased algorithms is just the beginning. The compulsive desire to control the world is far deeper, the agenda far sinister.
In his head, Dorsey celebrates pluralism, smashes Brahminical patriarchy. He is the voice of the unheard, champion of free speech, first of his name, protector of the realm.
But, you can't disagree with him. Because if you do, he shadow bans you on his platform.
And, what is the modus operandi
On Twitter, Dorsey is God, and a narcissist one at that.
They use every trick out of the bag if you don't agree with the Lord's ways. Your retweets would be abruptly reduced (#AapBeeti), the reach would be drastically controlled (#AapBeeti), you will never get that blue tick (#AapBeeti).
And, if you still won't toe the line, your account will be blocked.
