President Trump signed an executive order on Thursday designed to limit the legal protections that shield social media companies from liability for the content users post on their platforms.
"Currently, social media giants like Twitter receive an unprecedented liability shield based on the theory that they are a neutral platform, which they are not," Trump said in the Oval Office. "We are fed up with it. It is unfair, and it's been very unfair."
The order comes after the president escalated his attacks against Big Tech in recent days — specifically Twitter, which fact-checked him for the first time this week over an unsubstantiated claim that mail-in voting drives voter fraud.

And I honestly can’t explain the logic behind my brain. There’s no logical direction. It’s not like I have to have protein on my left, or vegetables farthest away, or anything specific. I look at it and I just know if it’s right or wrong. And when it’s wrong, I just rotate it until I know it’s right.
“Take the high road,” I thought to myself. So when I got to the first window I paid for her order along with my own.
The cashier must have told her what I'd done because as we moved up she leaned out her window and waved to me and mouthed "Thank you.", obviously embarrassed that I had repaid her rudeness with kindness.
When I got to the second window I showed them both receipts and took her food too.
Now she has to go back to the end of the line to start all over.
Don't honk your horn at old people.
I've watched the last clone wars season and lately read again the last of the four republic commando novels and everytime a little detail comes to light about Order 66 I'm like, Damn this guy knew what he was doing. Like placing a high ranking clone with every Jedi General, stretching the whole army and the Jedi with them over the whole Galaxy, let alone breeding a clone army in secret long before it all begins, placing lots of clone troops on coruscant as street guards shortly before the Order gets executed, etc, etc. Like there are so many little details about Order 66, it's just crazy.

This has been an ongoing issue I've had since early March.
My friend invited me to a really nice French restaurant for his birthday. It was only four of us, but my friend used to work there and was friends with the staff. Knowing it was his birthday, two of the servers and a manager kept coming by the table, playing around, occasionally bringing shots of alcohol, appetizers, and a birthday dessert for my friend. At the end, they danced around and presented him with a bottle of Dom and put it in front of him. My other friend and I kept glancing at each other, but my birthday friend assured us this happens every time at this place (free booze and sweets).
To be completely clear - none of us ordered any of these additional birthday treats, nor did we even touch half of them. They were brought to us without any warning or consent. Flash forward, my friend is sick from drinking too much and we have to go. I give them my credit card and split the cost with my other two friends. They give m... keep reading on reddit ➡
