Like facebook, reddit, twitter? I think they lead to stagnant politics because everyone is forced to self-censor to avoid getting banned. So the only 'left' that ends up thriving on such platforms is 'reform the state' dsa types.

Eh getting banned from Reddit or Twitter is pretty uncommon in my experience. It's usually specifically targeting other users that get people banned. I definitely don't hold back on Reddit, and the commies are the only people who have ever banned me.

Anything that educates or organizes people is a net good. Publicity can move the overton window to the left, it's not the platform you want but it's the platform you have now
