Breaking up tech firms might be a mistake - Instagram founders

Instagram co-founders Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom said the government should decide what problem it’s trying to solve before it moves to break up giant tech companies.

Krieger, responding to a proposal by Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren to split Facebook Inc., Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Amazon.com Inc., said the companies pose different questions for regulators and lawmakers.

In terms of National Security the US government needs to breakup Facebook. It's pretty easy for Facebook to run an algorithm that can manipulate an election in their favour

Not agreeing with breaking up large tech companies, but Instagram would obviously be against it.

How about we break up the government instead? You know, as the founding fathers of the country wanted it.

I might add that these "democrats" are basically taking notes from Atlas Shrugged. For those with Amazon prime, grit your teeth and ignore the atrocious acting and watch it.
