Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren set her sights on America’s largest technology corporations this week; suggesting the US government should “break up” giant companies; including Facebook, Google, and Amazon.
“I want a government that makes sure everybody — even the biggest and most powerful companies in America — plays by the rules,” said Warren. “
Facebook, Amazon, and Google have vast power over our economy and democracy. They’ve bulldozed competition and tilted the playing field in their favor. Time to break up these companies so they don’t have so much power over everyone else. #BreakUpBigTech https://t.co/2rWT0wJ8vD

“I want to make sure that the next generation of great American tech companies can flourish. To do that, we need to stop this generation of big tech companies from throwing around their political power to shape the rules in their favor and throwing around their economic power to snuff out or buy up every potential competitor,” she added.
