This is an egregious attack on our democracy. The end of #NetNeutrality protections means that the internet will be for sale to the highest bidder. When our democratic institutions are already in peril, we must do everything we can to stop this decision from taking effect.

We just lost an important battle in the war for an open internet. But that war is far from over. #netneutrality aclu.org/blog/free-spee…
Trumps FCC Nukes Network Neutrality: What Happens Now? The FCCs radical and foolish action today to reverse network neutrality protections means that we have lost an important battle in the war for an open internet. But that war is far from over.Todays FCC vote means that we will start to see the telecommunications companies intruding more on how we use the internet and becoming much more aggressive in their efforts to make money off their role as online gatekeepers. But nobody should think that network neutrality is dead. We at the ACLU and our allies will be fighting back in every possible arena to restore the protections that Trump's FCC appointees have eviscerated. And there is plenty that citizens can do. But the clock is now ticking because Americans may soon begin to see negative changes in the internet theyve always known.Network neutrality is the principle that the companies that sell access to the internet (Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, etc.) dont get the power to influence how people use the internet for example, by discriminating in favor or against certain data based on who is sending or receiving it, its purpose, or its content. Todays vote marks a radical departure from the policies of the past: Since the advent of the broadband internet, various FCC members have sometimes disagreed about how to enforce network neutrality, but never before have we had an FCC that stepped back completely from enforcing those protections.The fight shifts to CongressThe fight now shifts to Congress, where pro-network neutrality members will press to use something called the Congressional Review Act to undo this hasty and misguided action. The CRA is a relatively new tool that allows Congress to reverse regulatory actions within 60 legislative days of their enactment. It was used for ill in March 2017 when Trump supporters in Congress voted to wipe out FCC privacy protections that prevented the telecoms from selling our browsing history and other private information about our internet usage. But now Congress can use this tool for good by similarly reversing the FCC's (in this case, bad) action. Every American should press their members of Congress to support such a reversal via the CRA.If the push for reversal of the FCCs action through the CRA doesnt succeed, then the action will turn to the states. Were already working with state and local leaders to find every possible means to keep pushing on this issue and signal that the country wont roll over. We will be helping legislators figure out what protections they can enact at the state and local level, providing model legislation and resolutions, and working with our People Power organization to help Americans have a voice on this important issue.What does this mean for me? Most internet subscribers will not see dramatic changes right away; the companies know that this is a hot-button issue and that people are mad. Consumer-facing companies are restrained not just by enforceable rules but also by social norms and users expectations. Internet users have grown to expect certain things about their online experience based on the history of the broadband internet before this radical departure. Companies will also be restrained by the political heat over network neutrality.But that political heat cant be sustained forever there are too many other issues in this world. The telecoms have already been behaving, as political commentator Jon Lovett put it, like raptors testing the fences. Now that the fences have suddenly been taken down, norms and expectations are the only thing left to restrain them.But social norms and peoples expectations can be shifted especially by powerful, quasi-monopolistic companies that dont face significant competition. What were likely to see is that the telecoms will behave like the airlines: They will relentlessly erode the quality of their customers experience, charging fees all the while, and customers will hate it but find themselves relatively powerless to fight back.We're likely to see erosion of the open internet through three means: zero rating, discrimination, and paid prioritization. Below I describe each of those attacks on the open internet and how customers are likely to experience them.Data caps and zero-ratingZero-rating means exempting certain sources of data but not others from data caps. First your internet service provider sets a cap on the amount of data that you can download every month without paying extra fees. But the ISP exempts certain sites and services from those caps as a way of incentivizing you to use those services. Comcast, for example, has imposed a monthly data cap on most of its home internet customers but exempts Stream, its own video streaming service, from that cap. That means that instead of being able to judge Steam against other competing streaming services on a level playing field, Comcast customers have a strong incentive to overlook whatever advantages other services might have and stick with Comcasts. That makes it harder for other services to compete, which over time means less innovation and worse services for everybody. And dont forget: Comcast owns not only Stream but also NBC, Universal Pictures, DreamWorks, Telemundo, the Weather Channel, Bravo, USA Network, Lifetime, A&E, Syfy, E!, Oxygen, and many other media properties. They have an incentive to tilt many playing fields toward their own properties in the same way.Comcasts competitors, like AT&T and Verizon, also own and are working to expand their own media properties. AT&T already lets users stream content from its property DirecTV without it counting against monthly data caps. The effect over time may be to divide the internet into two: metered sites and unlimited sites.This trend is especially insidious because nave customers can easily mistake zero-rating as a good thing a freebie that they appreciate not realizing that in fact it is a strategy for taking away their freedom to decide for themselves what sites they like and how they want to use the internet. Note also that the potential advantages of zero-rating for the ISPs including selling zero-rating rights to other companies actually gives them a strong incentive to put data caps in place, rather than offering their customers unlimited data plans.Zero-rating was not explicitly banned by the FCC under the network neutrality rules, but the agency was watching the practice closely, judging them on a case-by-case basis, and the telecoms were on notice. With all restraints lifted, expect to see this trend expand rapidly.Data discrimination: blocking and throttling contentWith network neutrality protections stripped away, the telecoms will be free to discriminate in how they treat data crossing their networks. What can they discriminate based on? Basically anything they want. It could be the type of data (music, social media, video, gaming), the identity of the site that is transmitting it (giant incumbent able to pay hefty fees vs. unknown upstart), or the political content of the data. Such discrimination could take the form of slowing down disfavored data, or blocking it outright.I dont expect that the telecoms will be so bold as to start blocking access to liberal or conservative media sites right away nor would doing so be their biggest immediate temptation though it is worth keeping in mind the example of the Canadian telecom that blocked access to its unions website when engaged in a labor battle. And there certainly are plenty of examples of telecoms throttling, blocking, or charging extra for the use of particular apps.What the ISPs will be tempted to do first is to try to exploit their gatekeeper role to extract additional revenue from all ends of the internet. As with zero rating, this exploitation will be presented in positive terms: For a small fee you can get extra fast and reliable video streaming! Extra reliable gaming! Social media pages that load instantly! Or, for a special price, all three!The problem is that speeding things up for some means slowing things down for others. As technology advances, the two are indistinguishable. And the telecoms ability and incentive to extract money for better experiences will be exactly like the airlines incentive and ability to extract money for better experiences. In both cases, what starts out as extra bonus becomes an extra fee just for tolerable service. As Tim Wu put it with regard to this fee model in the airline context:Heres the thing: in order for fees to work, there needs be something worth paying to avoid. That necessitates, at some level, a strategy that can be described as calculated misery. Basic service, without fees, must be sufficiently degraded in order to make people want to pay to escape it.The gravitational pull of this perverse economic incentive is nearly inescapable for big companies. JetBlue tried to offer good basic service to everyone, but under pressure from Wall Street eventually had to cave, imposing the same terrible basic service and profitable fees as all the other major airlines. As Wu put it, It seems that the money was just too good to resist. Internet speeds have steadily risen over the years as technology advances but without network neutrality, we can expect to see companies behaving according to the same logic as the airlines.Paid prioritizationThe telecoms will also have an incentive to extract fees from the other end of the internet: the sites and services that want to deliver data. This will affect customers not only through higher costs paid by such services an increase in monthly charges for streaming sites, for example but also by impoverishing the choices and innovations available to them. Netflix may be able to pay off the gatekeepers, but what about an innovative new upstart competitor with superior service? Free market advocates have always decried anything that would put the government in the position of picking winners, but under this kind of regime, the telecoms would be in a position to do just that but without any incentive to pick new innovators. What future companies could emerge with the protections of network neutrality and how could they make our lives better? When it comes to this particular effect of the FCCs action today, we may never know what were losing.The ISPs will have a lot of power to influence how people use the internet, where they go, and what they do there. Studies show that even very small delays in page-loading time, measured in milliseconds, can drive away a significant proportion of internet visitors. That is another area where individuals might not even be aware of how they are being manipulated and steered online. Yet they may still be affected by decisions made in the corporate suites of gatekeeper telecoms to favor one kind of content, speaker, or application over others.In short, the internet as we know it is not going to change overnight. But this terrible action by the FCC has torn down the barriers holding back the erosion of the open internet we have always known. We are not going to roll over for this catastrophic mistake, and neither should you.

FCC just repealed net neutrality. When CA Legislature reconvenes in January, I‘ll introduce a bill to adopt net neutrality as a requirement in CA. If FCC won’t protect free/open internet, we will. #NetNeutrality is key to protecting our democracy, esp in this authoritarian age.

Top Tweets FAQ

How do you calculate what is a top tweet?

We use the number of retweets from the period of time displayed to rank the tweets.

Why are tweets with higher retweet counts ranked lower and from before the time period being shown?

We show the top tweets based upon the current retweet activity, so the original tweet may be hours or even days old (we limit it to 2x the period shown). In this way you can see what tweets are the most popular now, and have been created recently..

Are the results filtered in anyway?

We remove spam, bot and other unnatural activity using our own proprietry filtering tools, along with any tweets Twitter have marked as being potentially NSFW. There may still be some inappropriate tweets come through though, so please feel free to Let us know if you think there is content here that should not be

How do you deal with bots artificially promoting tweets?

Similar to removing spam tweets, we also will ignore any individual retweets from known bots when calculating a tweet's rank. In this way you can get a better idea of the real importance of a tweet, and not one influenced by artificial means. We are continually refining our process to improve the quality of results, and if you see anything you don't think should be present, please Let us know.

How do I find top tweets for my topic/language/country/state/city?

You can use our analytics tool to do complex analysis to get top tweets based upon a huge range of criteria. If you require something different, then please contact us and let us know what you have in mind.

How often is this information updated?

This data is updated every minute for the hourly data through to every half hour for the 24 hour results

Why aren't there 100 top tweets shown?

Sometimes there just isn't enough good tweets going around the globe, particularly when the Americas and Europe is mostly asleep, and for shorter time frames like 1 hour. We could include 100, but we figure you probably don't want to see 73 'top tweets' that are actually just bot induced spam.

Why are there some uncommon languages listed?

Determining the exact language of a tweet can be tricky. We try to use as many signals as possible to get tweets categorised correctly, but given the compact nature of Twitter there just isn't enough information to do it accurately all the time, and so unfortunately we can get it wrong sometimes. However someones there are some less common languages that are genuine top tweets, so we make sure we don't filter those out to ensure that when the less represented languages do have a popular tweet, we do give it appropraite presence.

Where can I find top tweets for my city/country?

Our local pages provide detail on current trends and top tweets for countries and cities across the globe.

Where can I find more top tweets containing videos, images, specific links or other or for my particular area of interest?
