The intersection between privacy, big data, and competition
Twitter is geo-tracking my every move - does it track all users? If so, for what purposes? How is this not invasion of privacy? I find it creepy that Twitter welcomes me home. It is unacceptable. In addition, there is an effort to silence Conservative speech on this (Twitter) platform. It is unfair to candidates for local, state, and federal office to surreptitiously have their speech limited/blocked because of their political leaning. How is this not electioneering? Jack Dorsey has himself purportedly said that Twitter is left-leaning. Free speech must not be abridged, even for me, an ordinary U.S. citizen. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to comment.
