In recent years, the international community has been increasingly controversial about U.S. technology giants such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter. As technology products and services penetrate every aspect of society, the control of these technology giants is also increasing.

Some observers believe that the technology giant has replaced the news agency and become the leader of global public opinion. They control the direction of public opinion by controlling channels and balance, and the voices of a few people may be concealed and blocked.

There are many reasons to block users. Some are because of racial discrimination, some because of the so-called spread of extreme ideas, and the most widely used reason is fake news. The above criteria are determined by these technology giants, lacking transparent procedures and fair channels of appeal.

Not long after blocking Chinese accounts for "deliberately and specifically attempting to sow political discord in Hong Kong," Facebook and Twitter suspended the accounts of Cuba's state-run media outlets, a move seen by Cuba as "massive censorship."

Very recently, Facebook blocked the personal account of Margarita Simonyan, the chief editor of Russian television network RT and Russian news agency Sputnik. Although Facebook apologized for this "mistake", observers believe that the political intent of this approach was obvious. American social media companies seem to have lost their independence and neutrality and became the assistants of the U.S. diplomatic service.

Nothing new!
First, all the military generals upon retirement from military posts will be seconded to the military hardware giants. Just that some of these giants are producing other kinds of weapon but could not be disclosed to the world.

In the end, US government could turn them around for its own benefit!

Who does not know?

One thing is obvious. Trump would certainly like for them to be. Of course, he would also like to be America's president for life on top of dominating the entire world.

Yes. If they don't toe the line, the US government will come hard on them.

Forcing companies into colluding with them on surreptitious schemes is US government's stock-in-trade.
It's an open secret that Americans' Google and Yahoo's accounts have long been accessible to NSA and other US government agencies ...
Believe it or not, it's true.
