Saudi Prince Alwaleed says Musk will be ‘excellent leader’ for Twitter | Reuters


Saudi Arabian investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said on Thursday billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk will be an “excellent leader” for Twitter, as he agreed to roll his $1.89 billion stake into the deal rather than cashing out.

============================================

That is debateable for Musk with all his $billions his decision making could be flawed, especially with his apparent desire to reinstate the Twitter account of Trump.

MS Society – Help us win a High Court hearing


My independence #TooMuchToLose

Dear Chris,

We have some exciting news. Our campaign to end discrimination against people on legacy benefits is being heard in the High Court today – and you can help!

The High Court is going to decide whether the UK Government was acting lawfully when they decided not to give nearly two million people on legacy benefits, including Employment and Support Allowance and Jobseeker’s Allowance, the increase of £20 per week that those on Universal Credit received at the start of the pandemic.

You can Tweet your support for the uplift to be given to disabled people on benefits using the button below. Sharing your support will mean that the UK Government is less likely to appeal the decision.

 Send your Tweet now→
 

If you don’t use Twitter, you can help spread the news by sharing the Facebook post at the top of our page or forwarding this email to your friends who do use Twitter.

We will let you know when the decision of this court case is announced. While we hope the High Court will recognise the failings of the UK Government, the fight to end this discrimination may not be over.

Thanks for everything you do,

Angharad
Campaigns Team

Racist morons bombard Saka, Rashford and Sancho with ‘abhorrent’ abuse after trio missed penalties | Daily Mail Online


Racism, yet again, Racism should have no platform in the UK, but it does and here the blame is not only on the racists, but the Platform providers Facebook, Twitter, etc, who by their apparent refusal to take these abusive down as soon as they appear, are, effectively as guilty as the racists who post these comments.

Not only should the racists be prosecuted, but also the platform providers, for only then will this racism end.

There has to be ‘ZERO tolerism‘ with regards to racism.

Why Does Social Media Deem It Acceptable to Allow Racial Abuse to Black Footballers? | Community | News


No form of abuse is acceptable no matter what circumstances are involved.

With Social Media they do have the resources to eliminate the abuse though their platforms, but they appear unwilling to do so.

The legislation promised in the Queen’s Speech could well alleviate that to some or all extent.  However, these platforms are owned my multi-billionaires and so their resources to fight or reduce the effects of any such legislation are enormous, but that should not stop the legislation coming into force and if it needs to be amended to make it more enforceable then so be it.

Black footballers could come off Social Media but why should they, why is it the innocent who have to act, rather than the perpetrators being punished, it is because it is easier for this to occur, but it is a major limitation of freedoms. Just because something is difficult should not be an excuse to not proceed, as by not proceeding this is as bad as the initial racial abuse and is in effect condoning but inaction or insufficient action. If the was put into every legislation, that inaction or insufficient action was illegal then more would be done by all concerned.
