Did we learn nothing from losing tumblr? App Store has not stopped demanding sites censor sexuality
IF TWITTER IS REMOVED FROM THE APP STORE TO “COMBAT HATE” IT WILL NOT BE LET BACK IN UNTIL IT COMPLIES WITH RULES AGAINST VISIBLE SEXUALITY
This will hurt way more trans people!!
The word “groomer” is not against the App Store terms of service. Trans people posting nudes is.
This content encouraging violence is also all over the mainstream news and much more populous sites like facebook. Removing the one platform left for sex workers won’t stop it.
People can’t seem to see it in the moment but we have much more to lose by twitter going down than we have to gain. Very few people, in their outrage, are demanding human rights inclusive standards from the App Store or moderators. We have so much to lose
97% of online sex workers rely on twitter. The killer was radicalized on sites like 4chan. They will still have facebook groups and discord.
But his victims don’t really use those platforms - Daniel Aston’s last post was a nude on twitter! https://twitter.com/AshleyLatke/status/1591435377742872576?s=20&t=Gl1axeMOd46QVBwWF4CrHA
No! Non-sex working trans people need to stop suggesting App Store removal!
The Nazis will still be all over Fox News, but we will not only have trouble accessing our main tool to organize against them, but endless sex workers will be destabilized. https://twitter.com/Esqueer_/status/1595166259829739536

The Supreme Court case Ashcroft v Free Speech Coalition is trending again after a certain alt-right influencer launched a conspiracy theory about a luxury brand photoshoot. Here are the facts about the case: https://prostasia.org/blog/is-it-illegal-to-be-a-manga-fan-in-america/
Spoke briefly to Politico about the growing opposition to #KOSA, the poorly named “Kids Online Safety Act,” which would make kids less safe, not more safe, by exposing them to surveillance and cutting them off from online resources and community. It’s especially harmful for #LGBTQ youth who are already facing unprecedented attacks. Congress needs to stop using kids as pawns to score political points and pass real laws to rein in #BigTech and reduce harm.
🚨URGENT🚨 - Act now to keep a bad bill off must-pass legislation. #KOSA will make vulnerable kids less safe
Step 1: Use the link below to email your lawmakers.
Step 2: Call 508-761-1268 and tell Sen. Schumer that #KOSA will lead to more surveillance and won't keep kids safe. https://twitter.com/fightfortheftr/status/1593393351557976064

These three paragraphs from an article about the wave of jail deaths sweeping the United States will teach you more about the criminal punishment system than anything I've ever posted.
Really frustrating to see an entire @washingtonpost write up on the Kids Online Safety Act (#KOSA) that doesn’t include any of the concerns that have been repeatedly raised by LGBTQ+, free expression and privacy advocates. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/11/16/their-kids-deaths-were-tied-social-media-they-want-congress-act/
