US: Elizabeth Warren vows to break up Amazon, Facebook, and Google

Senator Elizabeth Warren has pledged that, if elected president next year, she will aim to break up the big tech companies Amazon, Facebook, and Google because they have too much control over Americans’ lives, reported the New York Times.

In her plan to rein in the influence of tech giants, Warren proposes legislation targeting companies with annual worldwide revenue of US$25 billion or more and imposing sweeping regulation on Silicon Valley.

“Today’s big tech companies have too much power – too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy,” the Massachusetts senator wrote in a blogpost. “They’ve bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else.”
