Thanks for this. Totally agree. I was struck by something Ev Williams said in a recent interview with the NYTs — he was talking about the role Twitter may have played in helping Trump win power: ‘‘I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place. I was wrong about that.’ It feels as though we’ve definitely reached a place where we need to acknowledge that these massive platforms present radical and unanticipated problems when it comes to the way our democracies function. I’m not sure Zuckerberg has accepted that quite as thoroughly as Ev Williams.
