“Enslaved to US politics”: Assange seeks encrypted Twitter alternative

Source: Russia Today [Russian state media]

“Julian Assange hit out at Twitter for marking pictures he posts as ‘sensitive media,’ with the WikiLeaks editor threatening to quit the site because it’s ‘enslaved to its US jurisdiction and politics.’ Assange told his 439,000 Twitter followers on Friday that he is looking for a ‘decentralized/cryptographic alternative’ to the social media giant. … ‘Twitter’s freedom of expression has been on an inexorable decline. It’s enslaved to its US jurisdiction and politics. Although it is substantially better than Facebook that is a very low standard indeed,’ Assange said online.” (10/06/17)
