Tweets to Matt Cagle


In 2015, Wired magazine quoted Cagle (wired . com/2015/06/facebook-real-name-policy-problems) saying:

By controlling the identity of the speaker with this policy, Facebook has the effect of both reducing speech and eliminating speakers from the platform altogether. This is a particularly concerning move to the ACLU because forums like Facebook serve as the modern-day equivalent of the public square for a lot of communities.

Let's see if he applies that to Twitter and the Alt Right.

.@mattshuham: IAC, it's odd that @matt_cagle won't speak out given what he said before: Will you ask him?

@24AheadDotCom_ @Matt_Cagle I had to find the article you're quoting, but it seems like a very different case. IAC, I wouldn't have banned.

.@Matt_Cagle: when will #ACLU speak out against #Twitter banning #AltRight just over ideology?

@24AheadDotCom_ @Matt_Cagle presumably because that ideology is de facto fascism, they won't, nor should they!
