What would foreign countries think of Twitter banning Trump and Google//Apple booting off Parler? If those American Big Tech firms can do this to their own President, imagine what they would do to foreign leaders, corporations, and individuals when they see fit.
For the past two decades, the American Big Tech played a big role in the US hegemony around the world. Now that the Big Tech is seemingly overgrowing its government and is arguably more powerful, would foreign countries trust them anymore?
Take social media for example, would foreign countries still use Twitter, Facebook, or will they start thinking about building their own? China has already done that. Would Europe follow? Recognizing the difficulties and challenges in creating another Facebook, would foreign countries be willing to invest time and money in it?
Note, I am not arguing about whether it's right or wrong for Twitter to ban Trump, but want to start a discussion on the consequences of doing so.
