It’s just about time that we started admitting to ourselves that we spend an inordinate amount of time in another dimension.
No, I’m not about to go diving off into some metaphysical deep end here. I’m talking about the digital dimension. You know; the place where you do all of your banking, a lot of your shopping, and even some dating and arguing.
And, during the time that we spend over there in this computer-powered parallel universe, we often fail to recall that these are all private companies through which we’re working and writing and communicating. If they every wanted to just shut us down, for whatever reason, and/or without warning, that’s their prerogative.
For instance, as a damning new story about Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden began spreading on Wednesday, both Facebook and Twitter began throttling anyone who shared a link to the news.
Things got especially ugly on Twitter, where White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was suspended over the issue.
Twitter suspended White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal account on Wednesday after she tweeted copies of an email from a Burisma executive to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
McEnany shared emails that were obtained and published by the New York Post on Wednesday afternoon.
“Email from Ukrainian executive to Hunter Biden asks Hunter to “use his influence” on behalf of the firm paying him $50K/mo in email with subject “urgent issue,” McEnany wrote.
She also shared a copy of the email earlier Wednesday morning.
“Hunter introduced Joe Biden to a top executive at the Ukrainian energy firm he received $50K/month from!” she wrote. “Joe Biden LIED. PERIOD!!”
The explanation that McEnany received from Twitter was that she had been suspended for sharing “hacked materials”.
