You saw no uploaded videos on Youtube from China. You only see "news" outlets video, some of which actually used some of video posted on Twitter.

Clearly you don't want to understand what is being communicated. You can't find a single video taken by somebody in China, uploaded to Youtube.

Unlike Twitter, which has hundreds of them.

Hell, in the short time I posted the previous, new video have arrived on Twitter. Including "tank girl".

Not a thing on Youtube. Not one single upload from a cell phone in China on Youtube.

It’s funny ‘China tank’ on twitter gives me a bunch of stable individuals wondering why MSM isn’t covering this and how Tucker Carlson has done a very informative report on this subject.

Meanwhile on youtube there’s CNN news18 live stream with the title “Tanks spotted on road Amid anti lockdown protest.” As you can see, youtube and MSM like CNN are censoring this by refusing to mention it.

I remember what it was like when Google started making their own phones. The thing I remember most about it was how it was totally straightforward and easy. It definitely didn't require years' worth of planning and sourcing and stuff. Hardware is at least as easy to crank out as software.

If a scrappy little outfit like Google can pull it off, how hard could it be?

Twitter ends its ban on COVID misinformation.

I'm assuming Musk fired all of those people, so they couldn't keep up the enforcement if they wanted to.

It's probably not as bad as it could be. I doubt there are many undecided people on Twitter.

That was good. One thing it didn’t get to was that this is a two way street, in the same way that a bunch of older men who lust after teenage girls will celebrate films that center or justify older men lusting after teenage girls, Musk fans celebrate that you can win the game by being the richest person in the world, while also being an emotional child who posts memes and owns the libs.

Default Re: How Twitter?

The thing is that both Twitter and YouTube are blocked in China, so there are complicated dynamics there. It's not like Chinese citizens are free to upload whatever they want with ease and therefore YouTube must be responsible for any lack of videos.

But I don't know the dynamics regarding access to Twitter and YouTube through illicit means to circumvent the Great Firewall or the relative popularity of the two platforms and so on. I doubt you do either.

So the claim that YouTube, despite being blocked in China, is nonetheless censoring things on behalf of the Chinese government, requires a bit stronger evidence than "it's more popular to upload protest videos on Twitter" or "search results put media reports on the protests at the top" or one unsubstantiated tweet.

But like I said, you're not going to bother making an actual argument or trying to find systematic evidence, because it's all low effort trolling.

Cryptobros spent 600k dollars of their hard-scammed money to have a statue made of Goat rocket Elon.



I imagine that they are probably white suprenacist types who are happy they got to return to twitter, but maybe they are just really stupid Elon nuthuggers.
