The EU is working on a new ledger of legislation to combat “hate speech.” By the end of this week they are expected to present a “Digital Services Act” that is posing potential penalties for non-compliance of something between 6-10% of a company’s turnover. This should concern all of us, no matter where we live, because the clout of the EU market will shape the behaviour of Big Tech everywhere.

Gab.ai, the social media platform that was built as an alternative to Twitter, was banned on Google’s Play Store Thursday.
The move will make it impossible for users on Android phones and other Android-powered devices to use the app. According to Google Play Support, the app has been suspended and removed from Google Play as a “policy strike because it violates the hate speech policy” with links to the policy in question.

Statistics professor Salil Mehta, adjunct professor at Columbia and Georgetown who teaches probability and data science and whose work has appeared on this website on numerous prior occasions, was banned by Google on Friday.
