Replying to @ajayvb: Weekend read: @nixxin on digital journalism regulation in India.

This was pre-facebook acquisition. Competition was fierce. WhatsApp won that battle.

As Signal scales, for it to make it viable for people to switch, it has to get this right. With the privacy settings it has.

It has Bryan Acton, who knows this.

All the best to Signal.

Lots of them incorporated new, cool features.

Some did stickers. Some incorporated news feeds. Some had an Indian language interface. Voice calls. Audio messages.

WhatsApp focused on one thing, and one thing only: making sure messages reach you on time, for everyone. At scale

Signal has been down off and on since last night.

It is learning now what messaging at India scale feels like. Let me remind you about 2008-14: there was whatsapp, viber, jaxtr, Nimbuzz, plustxt, rocketalk, hike, kik, Im+, eBuddy, line, and some more.

5. Should they have banned Trump? Yes, I think so. Platforms should ban all incitement to violence, & all organising of violence, all threats. Do they do it for everyone? Of course they don't. You have to see comments that targeting women & women journalists on Twitter.

6. Will platforms be more accountable against hate speech in the future? Of course they wont. Least of all from powerful people. Not unless they're regulated and there's an expectation of reasonable action and accountability, as per laws.

Since I'm receiving lots of Q's on my views on the Trump Ban and Parler ban by platforms (Twitter, Facebook etc), I thought write about it. Here's how I think about this issue:

This is about power: As long as Trump hadn't lost the election, he wielded significantly more power
