The Internet Aristocracy! Twitch Leaks Reveal a Privileged Class Above The Rules And TOS

Matt – STAY AWAY – I had a couple thousand dollars and 100+ hours of my own work invested in two websites that I hosted with them, along with thousands of critical work related emails. They upgraded the hosting server that my account was on and transferred the wrong files when they switched out the hard drives and all of my data was wiped. They then threw out the old hard drives so all of my work was gone. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOST. STAY AS FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN.

The twitch drama and leaks reveals a privileged class, both in terms of money, influence and immunity to the platforms own laws.

    And so social media will in time die as the mainstream media is in the process of dying before it, because contrary to the beliefs of the likes of Noam Chomsky, most people aren't stupid or passive when it comes to selecting their media intact and when it starts messaging, preaching or selecting biases they disagree with they'll go elsewhere and the next thing will come along, it happened to Traditional news media, they started messaging for whatever political slant their writers or owners wished and the audience dropped away. Combine that with things like YouTube's aggressively increasing ad policy (first 1 ad that can be skipped after 5 seconds, then it was the occasional 16 second, then mid ads, the double stacked ads, then frequent 20 second ads with double stacking) and people will start to drift elsewhere, it may take decades, but it's starting…

    Hell it took me nearly a week to find out about this Brandon guy, cause anyone talking about him was quieted. I mean yeah I spend 12-14 hours a day in my peasantry delivering goods to people via 80k lb vehicles, but that's nearly a week I was deprived of my ability to root for this Brandon.

    Man, what a shitty way for feudalism to return. Couldn't we at least have brought back the cool clothes and elaborate rituals?

    While neutrality would be way simpler for everyone involved, I have to wonder if it would get Google's leadership what they want?

    For as it is now every country has to come to Google and form some sort of connection to get their laws and censorship rules enforced in Google's online platforms……essentially treating Google like a border nation except that it's a company and its "borders" are not outlined on any geographical map but instead take the form of web addresses and web traffic percentages, and the more connections Google forms to these various halls of power the firmer their grasp becomes over not just the Internet but the political power of those countries.

    Today, someone in Google can hit a button and just about end any regular persons digital life without having to give a reason, who knows what they'll be able to do with a press of the button tomorrow…..

    Glory to the Arch-istocracy! If I may be so bold, I shall put in my resume for a minor managerial role, say – control over a county or something.

    Yeah the problem is for us consumers is that this trend means OUR experience is going to suffer greatly as well. Not only will content be completely terrible and thus less fun, even useful content (playthroughs, tutorials, how-tos, etc) are at risk because they are NOT included in the aristocracy's circle.

    It used to be you could learn almost anything directly from youtube. Now, not only is entertainment being stifled along with free-speech, so too is useful educational material.

    The tyranny of the elites and the algorithm is a monstrous beast to slay, but I think it's a fight worth fighting.

    All over the world the civil freedoms quickly collapse. We might goung straight into a second "20th century" – a new era of total states.
