Jordan Peterson is launching a social network—Thinkspot—to promote free speech in a field dominated by Big Tech censorship.
The famous clinical psychologist is beta testing what is billed as “an intellectual playground for censorship-free discourse” at a time when Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Patreon, and Pinterest are all accused by critics of arbitrarily enforcing vague terms of service.
“Announcing Thinkspot: a new online communication platform (as promised post-Patreon),” he wrote Wednesday, ironically on Facebook, which has been embroiled in controversial censorship for several months.
Free speech is clearly under attack in Silicon Valley. Facebook recently purged its platform of conservatives and Project Veritas recently uncovered a censorship scheme in Pinterest.
The announcement coincides with a massive decentralization effort led by Gab to free communication once again.
