Twitter and YouTube Censors

I don’t even know for sure if I want to post something on this topic publicly, much less save it here privately. But it looks like I am at least typing this draft.

Many know of the censorship on YouTube and Twitter, not too mention Google search itself. I’ve started using Duck Duck Go instead. And I also know the “establishment” (for lack of a better word), is pushing a crusade against what they call “fake news.”

But what really freaked me out was when I saw Twitter censoring a post in real time right on a hash tag feed. I don’t want to write about the content of the Tweet, or the (fake?) document within the Tweet. That wouldn’t even be the point. However, I was a little freaked out by the content as well.

So, I probably will delete my Twitter, which is too bad. I seem to have a few followers there. For the time being, I’m leaving it activated, but not using it – kind of like my YouTube channel, not to mention most things related to Google.

At some point, we have to decentralize the internet. Or, come up with a new medium altogether. For now, I believe WordPress and Vimeo are better as far as free speech and thought go. Then, there are many smaller sites, like bitchute. Do we have freedom of speech?





Google Console, crawl errors, and SEO- What does it all mean?

I have a few online places, including this one, that I check with Google Console now. Apparently, this site is doing well, with no errors, although the crawl stats are less impressive than some of the other sites. Oddly, a couple of blogs I have using another blogging platform (shh…Google), have crawl errors, even though the crawl stats seem to be higher currently.

What does it all mean? Does it matter much really at all? I suppose it makes me inclined to use this one more, as the Google seems to be telling me it is the one functioning best. Of course, I don’t understand the way the whole thing works entirely. They call it SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and it seems to change based upon the weather or something.

So, maybe WordPress knows what it is doing after all. I thought they were just making certain things (like html code on the blog) difficult just because. Maybe, it is helping SEO. I don’t know really.

But I do know that I’m inclined to use the site that makes those issues the least burdensome, and from what I can see currently through the Console dashboard (although it will likely change over time), this site is performing well enough for now. Oh, Google…sigh.
