    With respect to not just abandoning platforms. I see your point with respect to Twitter and Facebook, but there is no reason I can tell to abandon Google (although their oppression of conservatives seems mostly internal). I would say Duck Duck Go (and even Bing) seem to be just as good at this point – and Duck Duck Go has the advantage that they try to enforce privacy. I would say use Duck Duck Go primarily and just switch to Google if you are having trouble finding what you are looking for (which won’t ve very often). I guess to really abandon Google it’s not just search, it’s also gmail which would be harder for most people to abandon, and Google Maps or Waze which would be impossible for me to abandon. Google however, makes most of their money on search so if you vote by using Duck Duck Go that should have an impact anyways.

    There isn’t much of an alternative to Facebook/Twitter. I find I have relatively little use for Twitter, but on both platforms I follow lots of right wing people/groups. Facebook recommends them to me. I do agree that people seem to be arbitrarily banned, and I would say Twitter seems to be way more guilty of this than Facebook. I also think Twitter could way more easily be replaced than Facebook.
