I don’t think we have fully grasped the significance of what DJ Switch did for us that night by going Live.

Imagine they had “regulated” social media?
That DJ Switch’s video wouldn’t have made it out, it would have been shut down. Even without the regulation, a top official in the army said it was photoshopped
The truth would have remained hidden.
Thank God for the Internet.
