Calling all entrepreneur's: Google, FB, Twitter and Reddit are engaged in MASSIVE CENSORSHIP and user MANIPULATION. In a market that has been completely dominated by these few companies they have foolishly created a large gap. A very basic customer need that they are no longer able to deliver. Please take the opportunity to innovate and bring trust, integrity, and privacy back to the Internet. I promise users will reward you.
