I push back on Congressman Buck's assertion that Facebook/Twitter/etc. is "acting as a monopoly." At this point, there are plenty of other social media sites you can turn to, such as Gab, MeWe, Telegram, Rumble, and DuckDuckGo, among others. How exactly does Facebook act as a monopoly when you can go onto all these other sites?
I do also believe the government needs to be careful about giving a private company a cloud for Federal government data. Would this be owned by the private company? Would this company have restrictions on what they could do with the information?
