I kind of get it, but at the same time, expecting a government to do everything itself is also not really feasible. Do you really expect the government to create its own intranet services, email system, email software, email server software, etc...?I still find it concerning that as more and more government communication occurs through these corporations, they increasingly get the power literally to interfere with the ability of the government to do its job. For instance, there are now government agencies at state and federal levels where you have to communicate with them with something owned by Google, or a Facebook page, and in-person and other means of communication are being phased out or degraded. There are jobs where they demand a Facebook page. So if you get kicked off Google or Facebook or whatever, suddenly you have been cut off from the easiest way of utilizing government services, with absolutely no due process or right to appeal it. And as infantile as President Poopy Pants has been, I seriously don't want corporate propaganda intervening between the President and the people. Twitter has no right to a fucking opinion, any more than the phone company has the right to break into a phone call between me and my mom to tell me my mom is full of shit.
