Not sure about that, but the common position here is that Twitter, Facebook, etc. are private companies and can deny service to whomever they wish without it being considered censorship.

I have mixed feelings about it, but in principal I think I agree. Ultimately, it will force right wing voices to develop channels that they have vertical, integrated control of from development, infrastructure, distribution, etc.

Now what Amazon Web Services has done to silence Parler may go well beyond that, and represent a breach of contract, but I don't know enough to say.

The big techs are monopolies that should be broken up, whichever way this plays out.

Agreed. And they are no longer platforms, they are publishers, and should be held to that legal standard.

Did you knead the dough and make the minced meat yourself? We wanted to make pelmeni, kind of New Year tradition, but laziness had won :(

Telegram must be happy with this situation. New users pouring there from Whatsapp.
I wonder where are their servers located. If it possible to Amazon or Google to ban them.

What do you put on them when you eat them? I like them with smetana and dill (укроп) but Bosnians also dress theirs in paprika and garlic fried in butter.
