The government working with FB and Twitter _is_ part of neoliberalism; Twitter and FB should be part of the “public sphere” – places where we get together and chat and govern ourselves. Trade, discuss, make groups of ourselves to make things happen, buy, sell, etc. That is, they should be loosely governed but otherwise hands off. But instead, the public sphere is privatized: owned by Facebook. Owned by Twitter. etc. and Government and private corporations work together.
