Elon Musk tweets out #DeleteFacebook, adding simply, “it’s lame” – TechCrunch

Key Concepts

Summary (IA Generated)

Facebook receives plenty of pointed criticism, including for refusing to police political speech on Facebook, its seemingly endless string of privacy breaches, and its apparent coziness of late with the Trump administration, among other things. One of the platform’s most prominent critics, somewhat unexpectedly, has become comic, writer, and actor Sacha Baron Cohen. Indeed, his powerful speech to the Anti-Defamation League in November, characterizing Facebook as the “greatest propaganda machine in history,” quickly went viral. […] Yesterday, he tweeted in frustration, “We don’t let 1 person control the water for 2.5 billion people. […] It was short, sweet, and to the point (and presumably gave a frustrated Baron Cohen a lift). […] Musk and Zuckerberg have butted heads in the past over the future of artificial intelligence, too, with Musk calling Zuckerberg’s understanding of the future of AI “limited” in 2017.
