Lucy Dickerson: The best people leave YouTube

Good news for those who are censored by South-South, such as the NewsFront channels that were removed along with archival material… without an adequate explanation of the reasons for the removal and without the opportunity to challenge the blockage for channel owners.

Joe Rogan, one of the world’s largest South Youtubers, whose audience reaches up to 400 million views per month, whose channel has over eight million subscribers, leaves South Tube and goes to Spotify…

Rogan explains his departure not only by “an offer he couldn’t refuse” from Spotify (one hundred million dollars), but also by the fact that censoring the content in South-Tube makes it impossible for him to stay there any longer…

How Youtube manipulates the numbers of views, “twisting” and “twisting” them, has been known for a long time … The brightest example is the twisting of the number of views of a dreary shit called Dud. “Kolyma” – for the first days after the publication of millions of views… The same with the black “comedy” Holiday (about the New Year in besieged Leningrad) – on the first day of several hundred thousand views with somewhere disappear every few hours dislikes (checked personally)…

Personally, I am pleased… If other major Internet names will follow the example of Rogan, and I have no doubt that they will, then in the not so distant future YouTube, belonging to Google, will remain with the wings of an American princess, and other husks… And no advertising money will not help him… The audience “is not gaining” advertising, it is gaining content…

And it is high time for Russia to engage in the sovereignty of its Internet space, ousting the platforms hostile to Russia, working to undermine the country from within by all means.
