Senator Josh Hawley has a new book out entitled, ”The Tyranny of Big Tech” where he is addressing many of the issues experienced in dealing with the massive corporations from Silicon Valley.
Of course, it also means dealing with them. While it sounds like a timely and possibly needed release, you see a bit of a conflict as the Missouri senator is promoting his book.
Thanks for making The Tyranny of Big Tech a best seller all week on Amazon! You can get your copy here https://t.co/hhFfIdthrY

Hmmm, about that…
Wait a minute! You, Senator Hawley wrote a book ranting about "big tech" but only to go on Twitter (big tech) to brag about sales on Amazon (big tech). Am I missing something here?

Yea, this is a bit of a quandary. How exactly does one take on the digital demi-gods without employing their platforms in the process??

Congrats to everybody who paid Amazon $4.50 to support the fight against Big Tech tyranny.

I know this may come as a shock, but Amazon is the biggest of big tech, so you just contradicted your own big tech censoring argument.

If you truly believed in the tyranny of big tech, you could have used this opportunity to promote the many independent booksellers that would have really benefitted from you promoting them.

Hard to refute this one too much.
Ah yes… the tyranny of big tech….
Like buying a book on Amazon.
And tweeting about it on Twitter.

Maybe it is an unavoidable result, but it still needs to be recognized.
