Big Tech refers to several Silicon Valley technology firms, notably Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon for driving technology growth and social change.

Microsoft and IBM are sometimes considered Big Tech firms because of their size, and Twitter not for its size but its societal impact. Twitter will likely be bought out by one of the larger firms at some point.

As of 2018, Google and Facebook controlled 60% of all digital advertising revenue, totaling over $60 billion.

Big Tech is playing a large role in the decline of patriotism as a value held by Americans.[1]

Censorship

See also: Censorship

Big Tech engaged in censorship of conservatives and Christians.[2]

In August 2018, multiple social media giants, with the support of the Left, mainstream media and Democrats,[3] colluded to ban Alex Jones's InfoWars from their sites simply because of his political views.[4] In response to public criticism of the conspiring social media platforms' actions, leftists made dismissive excuses for those companies on social media and in the liberal media, claiming that they are "free to do what they want" because of their status as privately-owned companies, not realizing that the collusion of those platforms to censor and ban InfoWars and other conservative companies and individuals for their political views potentially violate antitrust laws.[5] In February 2019, removed 22 pages related to Jones and InfoWars.[6]

Facebook banned several people whose views it opposed, labeling them "dangerous," even though they did not violate the site's terms[7] – Facebook continued allowing actual left-wing hate speech to go unpunished, however.[8]

The Groundwork in 2015 boasted it could influence the vote in any democratic election anywhere in the world as much as 25%,[9] highlighting the Search engine manipulation effect.

In June 2019, Project Veritas released an undercover video in which a Google executive admitted that the company was working, through its policies and products, to prevent "the next Trump situation."[10] Google subsequently moved to censor the video from its platforms.[11]
