Facebook and Twitter Ban Donald Trump, let's bring him to HIVE!

in LeoFinance2 months ago

The President is being censored from the largest social media websites, perhaps it's time he became aware of decentralized options

As you've likely heard by now, Donald Trump has been banned from Facebook and Twitter until at least the end of his term.

This is in response to the numerous "potentially false or misleading claims" Trump has made on the two platforms over the last several months and ultimately came to a head after many of his supporters stormed the Capitol yesterday without a strong rebuke from the president for a significant period of time...

Now that the election has been certified and it's official that Biden would be our next president, Dorsey and Zuckerberg felt 'safe' in blocking Trump for the rest of his term.

This likely comes to no surprise to anyone out there, but it continues to show how large tech companies call the shots.

They can de-platform anyone they want for any reasons they want, even the president.

Could this be HIVE's gain?

While HIVE has had a lot of trouble seeing any kind of demand for the platform (and for its coin), getting the president on board could be a game changer.

Over 70 million people voted for Trump and many of those still believe that the election was stolen from him and are willing to continue to follow him basically to the ends of the earth.

Once of the major selling points of HIVE is the fact that it offers censorship resistance to its users, something that should be very attract to Trump right now as well as his followers.

Even if we can't land Trump, I imagine there are a lot of his followers out there that are going to be boycotting Facebook and Twitter after their decisions to ban Trump.

This potentially very large group of Americans is looking for a censorship resistant home, lets make that home HIVE.

I am not sure the best way to attract these people but anyone that post proof of promoting HIVE to Trump in one or another, I will upvote your comment.

Just paste a screenshot in the comments below and lets do our part to get Trump and/or his followers a place that they don't have to worry about being censored.

Let me know if you have any ideas of the best way to leverage this for HIVE's gain as well.

Stay informed my friends.

I was just saying the same thing to @brianoflondon.
I just tried to get the message through by phone to a contact from long ago who worked closely with Trump and knew him personally.
Also sent a message on LinkedIn.

That is a nice move... not sure how to get anything in front of him at this point?

IDK, if Trump came to HIVE, they might just block us all!        🤣

Poshbot down again.

I love this. I've been reflecting on the fact that
A: Somebody has decided The most powerful man in the world should be prevented from speaking to the public over the internet.
B: Was able to make that happen.
C: We don't even know their name.
If Trump and his supporters aren't actively looking for places without such people, they're choosing to continue to empower them.

This is a huge opportunity for Hive.

We have everything Trump needs and we are far more censorship resistant than any other platform.:

  1. @threespeak for video
  2. @dbuzz for "tweets"
  3. main Hive blogs for longer pieces.

Numerous front-ends (Trump could quickly create his own based on scot-bot or LeoFinance model), 19 API nodes and growing quickly (@blocktrades has written how a API node with 4/8 CPU with 64Gb RAM and 2TB NVME can handle ALL Hive's current traffic - Anyone with a bit of tech experience can spin one of these up).

Even if Big Tech tries blocking front ends how easy is it to spin up a condenser front end.

Trump may well try Parler or Gab or other centralised right wing platforms first, but they will get blocked and banned and sued.

This is something we need to work on over the next few months - getting Trump to Hive.

But you know that this would mean WAR between Big Tech, MSM and HIVE! Are we ready for that? 😨

This will play out over many months.

Trump will come to Hive as a last resort when he is banned everywhere else IF we can let someone in his camp know about us.

In March I expect that one of the most senior Judges of the Australian Federal Court will rule that there is a prima facie case that Facebook & Google engaged in illegal (and criminal) cartel conduct in banning cryptocurrency ads in 2018. Twitter and other are implicated too.

The fight back against Big Tech is underway. Six anti-trust cases by US states against Big Tech will not go away. Crypto is mooning which means big $ in the pockets of libertarian crypto early adopters.

With anyone able to run a Hive API node able to handle all Hive's traffic on a $1000 PC (thanks to @blocktrades) Hive is ready for a massive influx of users and able to defend against the attacks that will come.

Unlike Parler or Gab or Minds, HIVE is fully decentralised - very difficult to shut down.

Can't argue with any of that. 🙂

The only thing that could throw a wrench into the gears is if we've lost the impartiality of the courts . . .

Edit: But that still wouldn't negate all the advantages of HIVE.

Thanks.
I'm unsure about US Courts but I know that Australian Courts are unbiased on this issue.

Even though the Democrats have Facebook & Google on a leash for now, they know how dangerous their power is and will be keen to reign it in.

Sounds plausible; let's hope they're not too late. Seems like the closer someone is to the CCP though, the more blackmail power they have over everyone else. Apple, for example, is a practical siamese twin. The CCP might already own Big Tech, and Big Tech just might own even the Dems already. Who knows? But we need to be careful about who we confront and its possible fallout. You know . . . just saying . . . playing the devil's advocate here.

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

HIVE is also likely to jump $3Billion

in a Matter of months... but the Don could speed that up a few weeks... and move the decimal place a point or two.

I've been saying that for some time now.

When the internet wakes up to HIVEs censorship resistance they will come in droves.
We just need to take advantage of this "censorship hype" and use it to HIVEs advantage.

The biggest (My favorite in order) selling points for HIVE is:
Censorship resistant.
You OWN your content.
You are a part owner.
Fast
Free
and lastly (you can get paid too)

I own myself.

If Donald Trump goes to Hive, Hive would have a marketcap in Billions.

Exactly...

Good they ban him because Donald Trump is Chump, and that is no lie! lol

Well, he convinced more than 72 million people to vote for him, so he did something they liked.

I liked Trump a lot more in the beginning. He just causes drama, I think Biden is gonna mewn the economy, and bitcoin. Some more regulations will help bitcoin in the long run!

Does mewn mean totally destroy?

How are you going to get him on Hive? You think he is going to post 1,000 word articles?

What needs to happen is someone needs to create a community AND an application (front end) catering to that target market. Ideally, over time, the community would develop a few front ends feeding the same data to resist being taken down.

This holds for any target market. Trying to sweep everyone to Hive with the idea that Hive is something that will want is misguided in my opinion. That is why the layer 2 is so important.

He can post any length post he wants, there is no minimum word count.

And sure you are correct, in a perfect world. Is this a perfect world? No it is not. The opportunity is there now, so either you strike while the opportunity is there or you likely miss it forever. There is a good chance the opportunity will not be there by the time what you are suggesting is ready.

Shall we wait for Leo microblogging platform to be deployed ? :D

I think it's worth a try.

There already seem to be quite a few people sympathetic to alt-right over here. This is a censorship-free platform. There's space for everyone here. The could set up communities of their own.

Trump is not alt right he is zionist puppet!

I would be overjoyed to have all Zionist puppets on Hive, too! :D

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Exactly.

The alt-right is all over MINDS so that could be a good place to start if you havent already seen their presence there its pretty big. They have also recently taken to parler as well so that could be a great place to pull some weight over. I am super progressive so I wont be trying to pull these people. I am just throwing out some ideas. I have been recruiting progressives to the platform on the basis that supporting blockchain technology removes some of the power from the central banking systems on the world economy. Conservatives will most likely be more interested in the free-speech or profiteering/brand building aspect.

I've been posting all my content on Parler for a couple of months now (in addition to Twitter) and encouraged others to help get a HIVE presence started there. https://hive.blog/hive-126009/@cryptographic/a-major-opportunity-for-hive

I'm neither left or right - I consider myself middle-of-the-road - sometimes I agree with one, and other times with the other, all depending on the rational debate behind each issue. I welcome healthy debate, debate void of intimidation and ridicule, and I think that the more diverse HIVE can be, the better.

Bring 'em all on . . . as long as they're respectful and civil. 😉

All are welcome. We just need the numbers at this point...

Hive is a great place and I hope they do come and find a home here!

I can't support anything they say and fear this would cripple future adoption. Their presence would damage the reputation and prevent real adoption among the masses. These people are a joke and destroy everything they touch. Go on those sites and see the toxic rhetoric they shill. What they are saying and doing has real life consequences. I can't stop it, but aiding in their delusional theories is something I don't want to be a part of.

The only reason to bring them in is for a cash grab which is short sighted because I don't think anyone will really like engaging in their nonsense, but what do I know. That's just my opinion and it may be unpopular.

Only on-boarding people that think you like you would be a massive mistake.

It's not something you would have to agree with, it's simply on-boarding a large group of people to a place where they wouldn't have to worry about being censored. Regarding the "masses", at least 72 million people voted for Trump, which is almost half of all the voters, so there are a lot of em out there... we are not just talking about the zealots that stormed the capitol here...

I understand your point, but personally I don't want to be apart of it if it becomes the next parlor. I want differing opinions and perspectives, but without censorship I could see it get out hand real quick from what I have seen on other sites.

I'm all for censorship resistance don't get me wrong by why would we actively encourage this vile piece of shit to come and join our community.

Because he brings numbers and HIVE needs numbers... Like I mentioned even if Trump didn't come over, getting some of his supporters to join would be a win. Over 72 million people voted for him, not all of them are "vile pieces of shit".

This is the President of the United States you are talking about.
Please show some respect for the institution if not the man.

While the Democrats hold the House, the Senate (by VP vote) and the Presidency, each is held by a very small margin.

The country is divided almost exactly 50/50.

Hive welcomes both sides of the divide and provides the ONLY place on the internet that people on different sides of the wall can discuss and debate in a civil fashion.

Fat chance.

There will be a lot of vile crap flung if Trumpists come here and particularly if some of their active opponents come here to troll them.

There wouldn't be a better way to make the platform known globally. :)

The media loves them some drama and controversy. :)

I judge someone based on their actions not their status. He's a human first and foremost albeit a pretty lowly one.

Good idea.. someone can create him his own H-E token... the CHEETO coin 🤣😂😆

I'm sure he prefers parler but who knows? stranger things have happened

Perhaps that is a good place to market?

that's a 1000 IQ move right there

Parler will get banned by Big Tech if Trump goes there.

I believe I mentioned Hive in some tweets I made to Trump when Twitter started to fact check him. He never replied, which I found rude. I hope if he ever does join it won't just be for a soapbox but to actually interact.
I disagree with most everything he says but what Twitter and The Facebook did by banning him is a great advert for all the alternative social media's.

Come to think of it I wouldn't be surprised if he started his own social media

It is worth a shot; Imagine getting him on 3speak and making a video that millions of Americans watch. That would be Yugee

Not sure he would respond to us. But maybe he wants to make hive great again :D

If you want trump supporters, be like Gab!
