On the face of this story, control of big tech seems a good response to the issues of the last few years.— The Renew Party (@RenewParty) November 27, 2020
Scratch the surface, however, and we are being sucked into a bun fight between platforms and the media.
It's about influence and money. Not us.https://t.co/jn1LfBRd1L
Gee, wouldn’t it be great to create better governance, accountability, and market practice legislation for big tech!— Dr. Alexi Drew (@CyberAlexi) November 27, 2020
If only there was a multi-national group with tech governance experience and the economic/regulatory weight to make it happen...https://t.co/olxYEkcw3V
The problem with Big Tech is not just market dominance, but the commodification of our social lives. New UK tech regulator will struggle to make a dint if it just tries to promote smaller tech companies using exactly the same model. https://t.co/V42z9FWyPu— James Muldoon (@james_muldoon_) November 27, 2020
U.K. approved plans for a separate regulatory program for companies including Facebook and Google, with the new unit having powers to impose fines to rein in the dominance of the largest tech companies https://t.co/JQbsueCIBz via @technology #Electronicsindustry #Technology— Mertium (@MertiumFin) November 27, 2020
🇬🇧 Interesting digital competition developments in UK as gov announces creation of a 'Digital Markets Unit' to 'enforce a new code to govern the behaviour of platforms that dominate.' I wonder if there'll be any alignment with EU's Digital Markets Act: https://t.co/lYv3C5gR8q— Samuel Stolton (@SamuelStolton) November 27, 2020
We’re making search engines more transparent 🔍— Dept for BEIS (@beisgovuk) November 27, 2020
A new Digital Markets Unit will enforce a code of conduct for platforms funded by digital advertising such as Google and Facebook.
Consumers will have more choice so smaller firms won't be pushed out.
