WWW was given to everybody at the time of it's inception to use for free and without outside influence.
How things have changed!
It is hard to foresee what WWW will look like in another decade, I think.
You can set up your own server, stick it on the WWW no problem.
In that respect nothing has really changed merely there are a large number of "private" companies offering platforms.
Twitter is a private company, they can do what they like.
(Snip only for brevity)
That's always been my fundamental problem particularly with the far right, they want to restrict others freedoms but not their own.
I understand what you are saying.
I fear I cannot set up anything on the net.
On the one hand because I lack the necessary "skills" and on the other because I have no interest in doing so.
And is Parler not a private company too? But one which has been effectively suppressed.
I am not condoning any content or revolutionary ideas here, just questioning the way the Net appears to he going.
That is ever more commercial. Ever more intrusive. Ever more targeted towards specific user.
And ever more watched over.
If I had a hammer, sometimes!!!
