    A report by Amnesty International that notes, among other issues, a growing threat to the freedom of expression from tech corporations, comes as Google and Twitter crackdown on political ads ahead of the 2020 elections.

    Faustian Bargain

    Amnesty International has published a report, bashing Google and Facebook for creating a "surveillance-based business model" that is fueling human rights violations.

    According to the non-profit organisation, the services Facebook and Google provide come at a great cost, as they actively stockpile users' private data for advertisements, undermine privacy, and establish "near-total dominance over the primary channels through which people connect and engage with the online world".
