Web Hosts, Services Connecting Websites To The Internet, Gain More Power
"We talk a lot about the choices that social media platforms make what kinds of speech do Facebook or Twitter block. But a less visible part of the Web may be more powerful. It decides whether an online platforms survives or goes dark. NPR's Bobby Allen reports on one front in the fight over online speech. If you want to run a site on the Internet, you need a Web host the service that actually connects a website to the Internet. There's guts of the Web that no one ever wants to see or deal with, or think about. Well. Greg Falco, a Stanford security researcher. Says it might be time to start thinking about it. Web hosting companies have the levers to vast online infrastructure and complete discretion to pull those levers as they see fit. That means they can decide which websites live or die. The question becomes tricky, like when you actually take someone down. It's a really great territory. The reality is comes down to understanding when it reaches from public attention when there's actually physical implications, for instance, a group of people who go to a website to plan to overthrow government and then use the site to document the attempt by posting photos and videos of the violence. That's the scenario that faced Amazon Web services, one of the biggest players in the Web hosting world. One of its clients was the social media site parlor, which was filled with post by pro Trump extremists before and during the storming of the U. S. Capitol. Amazon stopped hosting parlor and the site went dark. Too many. This revealed the power of Web hosting, says former Netflix executive Dave Temkin. He's an expert in the infrastructure of the Internet. It's absolutely invisible. It just kind of works, and no one knows what it is until it breaks in justifying cutting parlor off, Amazon said it had warned parlor of 98 examples of posts that quote Clearly encouraged and incite violence that went against Amazons. Terms of service. If parlor didn't clean up its act, Amazon would hit the kill switch. And that's what happened to Harvard's Evelyn duet who studies online speech. It was a big moment, It raised questions about the power of Web hosts. Is that the right place for content moderation to be occurring because it's harder to bring accountability to those choices when we don't even know who's making them or how they're being made. In other words, when a Web host Has a problem with content. Usually, these discussions are hashed out between two companies out of the public light and Web hosts. Unlike Social media platforms aren't used to having to explain these decisions. Another issue to excess is who polices the Web host. She pointed to the 98 pieces of objectionable content. Amazon sighted about parlor that it sort of made me love a little bit because, like has Amazon, read the rest of the Internet like 98 pieces of content or whatever it was, is not that many I mean, has Amazon red and It's on the old idea of the Internet as a marketplace of ideas where the best will rise to the top no longer applies.

Social Media Site Gab Is Surging, Even As Critics Blame It For Capitol Violence
"The amount of election-related disinformation online has dropped dramatically at after several media platforms band president trump. Almost two weeks ago. Facebook twitter pinterest instagram spotify twitch suspended trump and several of his allies on january eighth two days after the deadly insurrection at the capitol and since then misinformation on those savings as plummeted by more than seventy percent. This according to the research firm signal labs dr thompson staff writer at the atlantic joins us from washington as he does every monday and derek. This should not be surprising. Studied by cornell in october showed that globally around the world. President trump was the largest driver of false information about the coronavirus. Still your thoughts on this ban. Reducing disinformation by seventy percent. I think it's pretty straightforward Donald trump is the former in chief. He has been missing former chief for all four years of his presidency. He has tens of millions of followers. So anyone else who was similarly dishonest or similarly disinterested in truth Gonna reach nearly as many people because they don't have tens of millions of followers on twitter and so of course banning him from the site is absolutely reduced this information. It's it's made it harder for him to put stuff into the public waterways of of information and it's been hard to re tweet him or to jump on conspiracy theories and then embellish them as as we have seen so often on twitter on facebook across social media so it's not surprising at all and this is i think exactly what a lot of social media critics have then predicting for years. They've said if you directly. Take on the leading mongers of disinformation. You're gonna be able to erase it from the site. Yeah okay but quite couple questions. Zig no found that twitter mentions election fraud. Went from two point. Five million to just over six hundred and eighty thousand it reports that hashtags related to the insurrection at the capitol dropped a core across platforms by about ninety five percent. Twitter by the way also banned seventy thousand accounts affiliated with ridiculous and baseless cunanan on conspiracy theory so first question given how immediate the impact was. It doesn't show that these platforms could have done this sooner. I think this is tough. So social media has in the last decade banning. What i acquainted with the wild west in terms of its regulation they haven't exactly applied laws evenly. They don't necessarily even have laws. The kind of regulation that you need to apply across social media platforms facebook twitter etc doesn't exist at the federal level yet and as a result there was a little bit of a lese sayre anything goes sort of feel like and if you've ever seen a television show removing about the wild west in the middle of late nineteenth century that's essentially what you had Online now we're starting to see the law creep into the proverbial wyoming's of twitter and facebook. They're starting to really take action against people that very clearly violated terms of service. And in this case you know incite violence basement conspiracy theory. So i'm not surprised at this happened I think that the incident of one six the insurrection. The capital siege Essentially served as a litmus test And you saw a lot of social media companies essentially act around that. But i think we need rules going forward because hopefully fingers crossed. You're not gonna have moments like the capital siege or that insurrection every single week but you still need some law going forward determine who stays on the site and who violates the terms of service so much. They have to be platform. Well wait a minute. Isn't this though. Whack-a-mole i mean doesn't this mean that president trump and his allies and white supremacists who follow him and average voters will just gravitate to or create other forms. Really interesting question. So on the one hand i totally agree with you If they're kicked off of facebook kicked off of twitter they're just gonna go to some place like gabar parlor but with parlor for example we saw that parlor itself was somewhat d. platform. Or at least unserved. You had companies that were providing both its servers technology and discover ability. Essentially say you have proven yourself beyond the pale and we don't want to work with you anymore. So we'll see where these people go because they're going to go somewhere right now. I think they're probably going to this other social media site called gab But it raises the prospect that today you know you look at a place like facebook and twitter and it is inclusive of a huge wide variety of ideologies. Far left to far right. But what happens when social media sites essentially. Start to buy kate by ideology. Where say you know. The centre-left is on twitter and conservatives are on You know gab And then the leftist go onto some other platform. It means that are already fractured already. Somewhat shattered sent to the shared reality in america is going to become even more fractured an even more fragmented

Social Media Is the New Wall Street Trading Desk
"There's been an influx of new traders in the stock market in the last year or so and we report that many of them have been turning to social media for information on what to make end where to invest here to talk. more about. what's been going on is our markets reporter mccabe. Hey caitlin thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. So what exactly have we been seeing so over the past year really since the pandemic started. You've seen this rush of retail trading activity occurring and this has been a trend. That's been years in the making but because we've had so many people who were working at home. The markets were so volatile. You saw all these first time. Traders signing up for accounts and trying their hands at trading stocks and options and other securities and a lot of them are pulling their trading ideas from online communities across the internet. So you're seeing social media sites like tiktok twitter. Facebook read it youtube and many more that i haven't named all these young traders young and an all ages are going onto these communities and they're talking about stocks and they're bragging about their gains and commiserating about their losses and just debating which stocks they should be buying. And what does that look like. Are there any stories that stuck out to you. Yes so definitely. I mean as i've mentioned before we're seeing all of these traders who are trying their hands at this for the first time and do the pandemic people are often working from home or they may have been furloughed or laid off from a job and so we talked to one trader who during that period where she was out of work she was deciding to try her hands at the market and so Joined a discord group for the chat platform there and basically with a group of friends. She would wake up early every day. And kind of assess her stock moves and look at her options positions and then would jump on zoom call with her friends and live. Trade is trading kicked off every single day. And so i think what's most interesting about this trend is you're finding all of these. Traders are finding these little pockets of communities in which you know. They're learning about the stock market and they're teaching each other swapping tips. But some are telling me that they found really good friends in these communities and you know now they have these routines that they've established during the pandemic that you know maybe a year or two before they weren't doing and so really interesting that you know if people are out of work. I've talked to several traders who were like this that they're turning to the markets as a source of income and away to occupy some of their time.

Trump Has Been Silenced On Social Media
"A lot about Big Tech and certainly the past few days show just how powerful these companies are. First, Twitter and Facebook suspended President Trump's access to his biggest online megaphones. Then Apple, Google and Amazon cut off parlor, a social media site popular with Trump supporters and joining us now to unpack. All of this is NPR's tech correspondent Shannon Bond. Hey, Shannon. Hey, Elsa. All right, so we should first know that Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon are all among NPR's financial supporters. All right, So Shannon, what do you think He's pretty aggressive moves. Tell us about Silicon Valley right now. Also, you know when Facebook and Twitter cut off President Trump it really put the spotlight on something I think we've known for a long time. But I just seeing so starkly, Which is how much power these big tech companies wield because we conduct so much of our lives online. So there were the examples you mentioned. But also others that go beyond the question of speech really, to the bottom line stripe and papal cut off the ability of the president's campaign and his supporters to raise money and take payments. The e commerce companies, Shopify shut down an online shop connected to Trump that sold merchandise like Make America Great again. Hats and another shop owned by the Trump Organization that sold things like golf accessories and So these decisions they're raising some really big questions. What are some of those questions? Well, maybe the biggest one is all about access. So Amazon Apple Google. They have a lot of power over kind of what we think of more of the infrastructure of the Internet. In Apple and Google's cases, they you know, they decide what APS can go into the APP stores. So They decided this weekend to block parlor, the alternative social media site that Trump supporters had flocked to And that means it's much harder to get parlor on your smartphone, which is, of course, where most people use Social media, and then even more significantly, Amazon kicks parlor off its Web hosting service, so it's gone dark. You can't access it all today. Parlor sued Amazon. And basically, you know, we're really realizing seeing very tangibly Just how much power Big tech has to decide which companies which brands which businesses can effectively exist online, Okay, sure. That is a lot of power. But isn't all of this bound to But these companies even under more scrutiny going forward, Yeah, I think that's absolutely fair, and I spoke with Ben Weisner at the American Civil Liberties Union piece of the same thing. He's really concerned about these individual companies. Power. Here's what he told me. And it may be that by exercising their right their constitutional right to decide who can use their products right now they're going to bring a different kind of regulatory focus down on them about whether we should have let these companies get this big in the first place. So you know, this isn't gonna go away else. I mean, remember these companies they're already under a lot of scrutiny. Facebook and Google are facing any trust investigations. Now we have Congress promising new investigations here, so I think the spotlight just continues. Well, I mean, turning to President Trump. He got off. He got cut off from Twitter and Facebook now parlor. It was a momentary alternative, but that's gone. Now, where will trump go? You think that is the big question? There are plenty of upstart sites that want him. He might even start his own outlet. I think, Elsa, it's safe to assume he's not getting off of the Internet for good. I

Capitol Hill violence again raises the question of social media responsibility
"The story of the us capital wednesday was a dark day. Us history once again. Ask the question. How much responsibility rests on social media companies that have allowed figures like president trump the foment enough rage to enable such an act. This is your daily charge me to discuss this is our social media reported queenie wall. Welcome queasy thank you for having me. It's been quite the crazy exhausting week. Yes i really actually want to get you on earlier by new. You're so busy to the store. I didn't want to bother you. I'm glad you're able to come on today. so let's let's talk about it. Facebook and twitter have to their credit. They been more proactive of the last several weeks really since the election in flagging trump social activity but wednesday's violence seem to be a real turning point. Run through some of the steps. They've taken to to your outright block trump in some cases so i think it was interesting because you saw content. Moderation happen in real time and initially. Facebook twitter did with a usually did with trump's posting tweets which was a label to them which you know experts have said in the past. They felt was not very adequate on to his claims of voter fraud. And then you saw twitter limit. The reach of his tweets Like stopping people from re tweeting his tweets and them and then eventually saw the company's remove the posts and that was you know as violence continued to break out on capitol hill. They took the even stronger step of locking trump's accounts which prevented him from tweeting or posting on facebook. Facebook said the lock was indefinite and twitter. Said that he had to delete three violating tweets. After that there there would be like a twelve hour lock period and once that ended he Again so how. Unprecedented is this. The you know. The fact that facebook said trump's account would definitely be locked down for the next two weeks but also really called indefinite which suggests there isn't an end date cow. How a precedent. How big of a deal is this. It's a really rare step by the social media companies because in the past especially with facebook the company has had a mostly hands on hands off approach to political speech. They exempted politicians from fact checking and their rationale has been political speeches already heavily scrutinized and the public should have the right to see what the president is saying and twitter has taken a much tougher stance but they have something called a public interest. Notice where they will limit the sharing of the tweet and say that it violated its rules. But you could still see the tweet if you click through the notice. But this time. Both of the company's locked trump's accounts and pulled down his tweets because they said you know the risks of islands with much greater than public interests these steps as you note there big deal ends a big change of practice but is it too little too late for these companies and many sense. Yeah it was because the violence had already broken out. They were given a lot of warning signs before and they didn't take stronger. Action until after violence had broken out and so the companies got criticism from politicians including former first lady. Michelle obama on civil rights activists journalists saying they should either take stronger action or that. This was really something that they should have done a lot. Sooner because at this point damage has been done right. So let's talk about the role that social media's played in radicalizing people how all this online content motivate people enough to actually travel all the way to dc and stormed the capitol building so trump himself and his supporters were promoting this rally online. Like it was no surprise that there was going to be a big rally on january the sex and he's been pushing these baseless claims of election. Fraud sense you know. Joe biden was declared the winner of the next of the presidential election. So he's been sort of riling up his supporters By seeing the election has been stolen and even before the violence broke out there were already stories and researchers pointed out that there were calls for violence on various social media platforms and some of it was in social media sites where there's a large conservative base marvin echo chamber.

I m table professor of computer. Science at the university of rochester may research areas on in general a machine many data mining areas. I'm donna lie. I'm a junior at interested in rochester. L. majoring in computer science and economics will great to have all three of you here today to get started. Tell me a little bit about what brought the three of you together. Computational social science as one of my research areas and michael has been working on similar poppy extol. We've done a lot of election related research but this year because kobe nineteen it becomes clear to us that we should seize the sub -tunities though as i was teaching the data mining course. I encouraged students to take kobe. Nineteen as the topic for the project. So neon jonathan amount them though we investigate a number of issues from face masks ordine panic buying mental health issues contribues views of kobe. Nineteen terminology such as china but face mask is one of the most interesting issues. I'm glad neil and jonathan jumped on the opportunity right so as professor low mentioned our project originated as sort of final project for our game might in class then. We worked over the summer. Mer finding it so basically the impetus. I guess for the investigating masks as thick nineteen topic was the fact that it was so controversial. I think it's very interesting because we just sort of casually. I noticed that there seems to be cultural differences. In how americans sort of approach mask wearing and many countries in asia for example of french mass wearing. It's pretty ingrained in the culture. Just wearing a mask in asia means most of the time you don't necessarily sick like you want to prevent someone else from being sick seems to be the attitude but then these sort of attitudes towards pass was polarized in them skewed and then there's increasingly large amount of coverage about mask political issue right. You know we have articles about. Why will trump not wear masks or a certain demographics having difference us towards mass and so with these facts. We thought that it would be a good topic to investigate. Also i guess announced experiences kind of notice that like when it first broke out restoring General funny kind of just the wear masks you another. But we don't have to kind of shifted to everyone covering mass eventually and it being mandated for everywhere now. Well that's good to hear given that they definitely help in public health. But i get the sense that that's not a universal thing we can say about everybody everywhere. I guess to get started. Maybe you could tell me a little bit about how you collect data in this area. Obviously there's an interest in making some statements and doing some analysis around the usage and opinions about face masks. But how do you get started tapping into some data source that can give you a real place to start from so we choose social media as the source of data. This is different from other reports awaits rely on surveys and questionnaires and polls to study public opinion. Many issues including face masks so as some issues with traditional approach of using surveys to number why scale so typically us avail poll only involves assad. Noel fewer people though scaly issue ways. The small-scale came the buyer stole. We all know that post were not accurate in predicting the outcome of a presidential elections at least not the percentages and also pose surveys amount necessary. Real time 'cause you send them out. People may not respond immediately. They may not respond faithfully so only sort of weaknesses of a traditional approach so we decided to do social media where we can get lots of data are we can get a million users and we get these data on ongoing basis to perform real time analysis. We believe this approach overcome a number of weaknesses of the traditional approach. Yes so basically. There are some intrinsic issues with survey based approaches that social media data mining resolves. Now i've received the question before about why we choose twitter specifically and vesicles twitter in general the types of topics and the types of authorisation. That happened on the platform are technically more serious. Rights alike wouldn't necessarily go to instagram namely i because it's a picture based social media site while i'm twitter's mostly taste and then previously in the literature. Twitter has been verified as a valuable source of analyzing and predicting areas. Large-scale societal events. So festival mentions that his group has worked on sort of elections or example. The two thousand sixteen election sort of predicting. I believe the group did a better job when compared to the polls and the actual percentages just by using of social media. There's been previous works looking at h one n one pandemic Outbreak any sort of analyzing aspects of those pandemics so the twitter would be assessed
