Hey cool, idea!


The information coming out now about Twitter shows a bunch of requests to
take down information.  Twitter complied, using Twitter's resources, for
which advertisers pay (that's Twitter's revenue stream.)  Alternative: have
people who request a post be removed pay to have it removed.  Keep a record
of what was removed and when it was removed.  Payments for removal would
have an expiration, after which the paid-to-remove post would go up.


Then the content moderation would be effectively done, not by paid
professionals at Twitter's expense, not by advertisers, not even by users,
but by paying Twitter customers.  That could make a buttload of money!
Sheesh that infamous laptop alone could be worth billions, perhaps the first
trillion dollar news item.
