Social media’s recent shadow ban on Palestinian content is alarmingly working against the voices raising awareness about on the ongoing violent events. Despite Instagram, Facebook and Twitter’s claims that such censorship is merely a bug or accident, the issue persists and users aren’t convinced.
To counter these practices, alternative web masters have created next-generation apps and platforms that are decentralized, censorship-safe and filterless. Here, we’ve rounded up our favourites.
