Facebook destroys everything it touches. It needs to be treated like a public utility and regulated. So does Twitter.
@lilithsaintcrow Given that it destroys everything it touches, maybe it needs to be treated like an existential threat to civilisation and dealt with as such.
@flussence Except the company (or companies) that came along to profit off the business model afterward would likely be even worse!
@lilithsaintcrow They might be a little more mindful of their externalities after seeing the corporate carcass that came before them.
@flussence I admire your optimism, but do not share it.
@lilithsaintcrow Me neither. I don't really see Facebook being put out of our misery any time soon. It definitely won't be a quick and clean change if it is.
