Is Mozilla / Firefox silencing and de-platforming President Donald Trump?

Checked information states "is not enough and that the entire internet needs to be re-tooled to stifle political dissent."

Is this true? Even remotely true?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Mozilla, the maker of Firefox, recently posted about social media transparency on its blog. The post starts by referring to Trump/Twitter, and then set forth this list of actions that social media platforms should do immediately:

  • Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how much they are paying and who is being targeted.
  • Commit to meaningful transparency of platform algorithms so we know how and what content is being amplified, to whom, and the associated impact.
  • Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.
  • Work with independent researchers to facilitate in-depth studies of the platforms’ impact on people and our societies, and what we can do to improve things.
