As Big Tech platforms have increased their censorship of so-called “hate speech” and “COVID-19 misinformation,” platforms such as free speech social network Gab and the messaging app Telegram have seen a surge in new users.

Now, a new post from Google’s Jigsaw unit, which “explores threats to open societies and builds technology that inspires scalable solutions”, is recommending that users of these platforms should be surveilled across platforms in real-time, so that they can be more easily be blocked from sharing links to “harmful content.”

The post begins by complaining that “extremists and people who spread misinformation” use more than one online platform to communicate with others and that moderating content on “just one platform can be limiting” because “numerous studies show the removed content often simply resurfaces on another platform.” It then suggests “a dynamic, internet-wide approach is necessary” to flag and censor content across multiple platforms.

Google Jigsaw’s proposals are based on its 2019 research of “hate clusters” and “COVID-19 misinformation spreading clusters” on six social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, Gab, 4chan, Telegram, and VKontakte.
