Cardano Foundation Addresses Censorship On Social Media
The Cardano Foundation is addressing a really important subject these days – the censorship on social media.
The team behind the project recently shared the following tweet:
Censorship on social media is a very hot topic today. Should #SocialMedia be #centralized? Can #blockchain deliver equity of voice & true freedom of expression? Read our latest blog post to discuss the debate of free speech, social media & the blockchain. https://t.co/xGRsTAkjbA

Someone said: “fiercely debated on both sides by pro-censorship advocates and defendants of free speech” Social media censorship is not a free-speech issue. Free speech guarantees the (limited) right of expression, free of Government reprisal. Anti-ToS crusaders are NOT defending free speech.”
Cardano posted: “Some would argue that social media platforms should be considered a public utility. Our question to the community is, should social media be centralized and federated or decentralized and/or confederated? Why?.”
One follower posted this message: “It’s ironic that this has been posted on Twitter, the MOST blatant offenders of one-sided censorship.”
The subject definitely triggered a debate in the comments among the community as expected.
Cardano has been making headlines these days due to various achievements and plans.
