Megaupload Founder Calls for Facebook, Twitter Replacement
Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom tweeted this week that he wants to build a social network that would replace Twitter and Facebook.
Dotcom also called on whistleblower Edward Snowden, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, and Germany’s Chaos Computer Club to join him in making an alternative that provides real privacy and zero censorship from a trusted source.
Cyber-security expert Alan Woodward meanwhile said that the issue revolved around trust, and Facebook and Twitter may have learned new lessons after their recent privacy problems. He also remarked that users may prefer the devil they know than the devil they don’t.
