What would happen if, 74 million Trump voters went after the businesses that advertise with Twitter, Facebag, or use AWS ??
I think we are going to see a split in the economy
@Supes Vote with your wallet.
It's not too difficult to see who is spending money on these sites, in as far as advertising goes.
Maybe a nice printed letter to the CEO and CFO. Lets start gumming up their mail rooms.
If they don't fix it, my favourite is then sending the CEO, CFO and national sales managers receipts from other providers, with a reminder as to how much in a lump they will lose over the next 5 years. Then I go after their clients to move them away, let them know of that too.
@ChrisWilson On what will the split be based? Are we talking about the equivalent of villages of old where they aggregated based on geography, but the new "villages" will be ideas based? If so, how is infrastructure to connect them managed?
@ChrisWilson i hope we see the collapse of all these major social networks. Theyre such toxic fueling shitholes, its a wonder how they ever got as big as they did. I remember when networks like myspace came out, everyone used to think the sites were so dumb...then facebag came around and all of a sudden. It was a cool thing to have. And then the major psy ops started. From experimenting on their user base, to what we see today. Fuck em.
@MrTWatson Professor Ted was right.
Lets see if there are any civil law suits ??
I'm expecting a double down.
Someone mentioned a 20K page legislative document they are looking to pass as soon as JB becomes president. Another "Patriot Act" effectively making breathing, while supporting Trump a felony. Also being white at the same time is considered aggravating circumstances.
But, so as not to discriminate, people of colour who support Trump, will also be treated as if they are white
I would not doubt it... @ChrisWilson
Target for the liberal side of society, a Bullseye for the conservative.
Owned by the same companies, of course.
@ChrisWilson this is 5th gen warfare. The left has been using it a lot in the last 4 years. Time for the right to use it.
Most likely the companies become less concerned that things a "brand safe" which is a good thing.
@ChrisWilson they won't. Count the number of people who've cancelled their Disney, Apple, or Amazon prime subscriptions this week. Count the number of people who'll avoid Unilever and their subsidiaries...
Muh Convenience is why we can't have nice things.
Tagging everyone who replied.
Ok. So Twitter dropped 6.6% and Facebag 3.8%
The advertisers are the ones to hit. A 10% hit to their bottom line is enough to send some apples off the apple cart
@ChrisWilson probably going to drop more tomorrow, bounce up and then down again early Feb with earnings reports hit (for twit at least).

Been seeking Twitter advertiser lists. Probably meaningless to others and too long to toot the dead-ends. However, lol, I found http://adam.curry.com/art/1534362954_UCZfbmGb.html.
