Well, they really did it.
After you and everyone you know commented, called, and emailed telling the FCC you wanted to keep the Internet free (a poll found that 83% of people were against this repeal), they… completely ignored you.
In a vote led by Donald Trump‘s hand-picked corporate puppet chairman Ajit Pai, the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to repeal Net Neutrality, giving corporations the ability to dictate Internet traffic and charge you accordingly.
Naturally, just about everyone on Twitter was either angry, despondent, or somewhere in between. See some of the strongest reactions — while you can (below):
Three Republican men vote to take away your rights on the Internet. Two Democratic women vote to protect your rights. Tell me again how there├óΓé¼Γäós no difference between the two parties. #NetNeutrality pic.twitter.com/n3Q10yMzWv

We├óΓé¼Γäóre disappointed in the decision to gut #NetNeutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity & civic engagement. This is the beginning of a longer legal battle. Netflix stands w/ innovators, large & small, to oppose this misguided FCC order.

One of the most alarming things about this situation is that our tweets and voices had NO impact whatsoever. Millions of people shared their thoughts against repealing #NetNeutrality and it only took 3 people to completely go against us.
