On Thursday, Facebook and Instagram (which is owned by Facebook, Inc.) permanently banned “dangerous individuals and organizations” from their platforms. Infowars founder Alex Jones, investigative journalist Laura Loomer, Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson and Milo Yiannopoulos were among those included in the de-platforming.
This comes less than two months after Tommy Robinson had his pages with over a million followers removed from the social media platforms.
Meanwhile, the Islamic terrorist organisation of Hamas is still permitted to use Facebook and Instagram.
When Tommy Robinson was banned he launched a Telegram group that now boasts over 34,000 followers. Other censored personalities followed suit.
Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram is privately owned by two Russian businessmen who started the company to fight censorship in their country. They’ve proven to be the only platform to refuse to cower to any government or business interests.
Whilst it was originally designed as a messaging service only, with newly added bots it is fast becoming far more than that. In fact, it functions better than any other social media platform.
