This is a tale as old as time. Not love, it is about keeping something you made safe from those who would destroy something beautiful. In this case, the thing of beauty is a talking banana who reads Twitch and Youtube comments. The ne’er-do-wells are trolls seeking to ban-anana the account by forcing it to recite restricted words.

The problems stem from a visit from [Greekgodx], whose followers tend toward the dark side. When they set their sights on [Mike Nichols]’ yellow automaton, things slipped into a bleak place, and a twenty-four-hour ban falls on the fruit. A bunch of filtering is done, but it isn’t enough to stop the trolls, and the tally-man adds a second permanent strike against the account. An arms race of slurs and filtering ensued until the robot was able to reject all attempts at racism.

The banana has since been peeled from the feeds

Today's social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked.

There's a better way: a network of independent microblogs. Short posts like tweets but on your own web site that you control. is a safe community for microblogs. A timeline to follow friends and discover new posts. Blog hosting built on open standards.

Uganda's Regressive Social Media Tax Stays, at Least For Now
Uganda's parliament is buying some time on its review of a recently implemented "social media tax" that requires citizens to pay 5 cents (USD) per day to use popular social media sites. The government was forced to reconsider the law, which went into force on July 1, after street protests sprang up over the tax's implementation. The parliament has referred the law to the body's finance committee for "public consultation," local media report.

Wired: "'The primary motivation behind [the social media tax] is to silence speech, to reduce the spaces where people can exchange information, and to really be able to control, with the recognition that online platforms have become the more commonly used way for sharing information,' says Joan Nyanyuki, Amnesty International Regional Director for East Africa, the Horn, and the Great Lakes...Political analysts have categorized Uganda’s government as 'dictatorship light.' The country’s 73-year-old president, Yoweri Museveni, has been in power since 1986...When the social media tax was first announced at the end of May, Museveni reportedly told parliament it was to discourage the spread of 'gossip' and to earn revenue from the use of popular social media apps run by foreign companies. International and domestic outrage followed, but Museveni doubled down on his defense of the tax. "
