Cyclist sits around unpaid waiting for a job. Finally cyclist is sent a job and cycles to collect it. Still unpaid. Arrives at job & sees ridiculous size of order would be impossible for cyclist to carry. Has to reject job. Still unpaid. Goes back to waiting for a job. Unpaid https://t.co/VhAeLfVd16

How the F does @UberEats and @IcelandFoods expect a scooter or even a cyclist to carry these packed out heavy bags as far as as Bermondsey/4.3miles away from this location for £5/£6. This is what slave labour looks like. @IWGB_CLB and this happens all the time. https://t.co/YYnTastkJc

lololol so actual experts are having their appointments to museum trusteeships blocked because they are too “political” but the former chancellor of the exchequer is a totally neutral addition to the board https://t.co/WEEHGS6sXi

The future of the open Internet is under greater threat than ever before, human rights groups say. Will the Biden Administration step in? https://t.co/PWWMzZmDqc

Facebook allowed an extremist group, the #SanatanSanstha, to operate openly on its platform for months, even after banning the group’s main pages for violating its policies, @billyperrigo reports for @TIME: https://t.co/4DbRRuuAak

International media such as the @WSJ, @TIME and @Facebook have an alliance. This alliance is running anti Hindu agenda in India. Banning pages of Hindu organizations is part of this conspiracy. So the Indian government should ban Facebook. #Facebook_Targets_HJS @sanatanprabhat https://t.co/KbbMBidMRR

The campaign imagery shows FB's logo rendered in green, a color associated with Islam. It's part of the HJS/SS argument that Facebook is persecuting Hindus and pandering to Muslims. (I think Palestinians would dispute this.) (8/) https://t.co/74P6VOimkT

And now, the HJS is leveraging that, calling on other Hindu groups to join in its campaign to get Facebook banned. "Given its anti-Hindu stance, no wonder if FB suspends pages of other devout Hindu organisations and leaders hereafter!" (6/) https://t.co/CLbt6WN1o1

The narrative in these campaigns is that Facebook is unjustly targeting legitimate Hindu speech. Facebook could disarm that criticism by giving a nuanced explanation about why it chose to ban HJS and SS pages. But it hasn't. (5/)

They wouldn't tell me. All they'd say is that SS/HJS were banned for violating community standards. Now the groups are capitalizing on this, with the campaigns #Facebook_Suppress_Hindu_Voices and #Facebook_Targets_HJS (4/) https://t.co/XBUQcPWSSW

Facebook's lack of transparency about their reasons for banning the SS and HJS are important here. I repeatedly tried to get Facebook to explain to me in detail why they banned the SS and HJS. Was it because of hate speech? Threats of violence? Misinformation? (3/)

Yesterday, the SS released a statement. "Such an action from FB is a grave violation of the fundamental rights of the Indians provided by the Constitution. Hence, the anti-Hindu and anti-India social media like Facebook must be banned in India." (2/) https://t.co/qThIaDMiIW
