ThemTube (YouTube nickname)

YouTube is an American video-sharing website that began in February 2005. In November 2006, Google purchased YouTube. Those who have criticized Google’s operation of YouTube (such as issues of censorship and promoting mainstream media product) have called it “ThemTube.” “YouTube will become ThemTube and then NoTube” was posted on the newsgroup alt.slack on September 15, 2006.

“Censorship? But its for your protection! Welcome to ThemTube!” was posted on Twitter by Wallace Wellington on December 24, 2008. “YouTube is Now ThemTube: Time to Flee the Failed Platform” was posted on YouTube by corbettreport on February 26, 2018. “#VoxAdpocalypse: The Next Stage in The ThemTube Purge - #NewWorldNextWeek” was posted on YouTube by corbettreport on June 6, 2019.

Other YouTube nicknames include “CensorTube,” “JewTube,” “ScrewTube,” “TheyTube,” “UselessTube,” “WHOtube” and “YouBoob.”

Eventually they’ll turn off the Internet using “hackers” and “viruses” as the blame. Download that shit while you can, o my droogies. YouTube will become ThemTube and then NoTube.

5 August 2007, Dayton (OH) Daily News, “YouTube caffeine crusade as funny as anything on TV” by D. L. Stewart, pg. D6:
YouTube, I discovered, is sort of like blogs, only instead of writing about things for free, people put together videos of things for free. It’s sort of a Wayne and Garth go online. Frequently, the stars of these videos are the people who made them and there’s hardly any chance that you would be in them, so another thing I don’t understand is why they don’t call it ThemTube.

31 August 2007, New York (NY) Times, “YouTube and the Censors: An Update,” online:
One blogger, Jason Lee Miller at WebProNews, summed the trend up in a post heading yesterday: It’s YouTube and MeTube but Not ThemTube.

As James Corbertt of corbettreport.com stated when he coined the term “ThemTube”, it’s time for everyone to migrate to alternative platforms now more than ever! Recently YouTube began a massive purge of channels that often question the official narrative of world shaping events. Computer algorithms have been trained to spot the “trouble makers” with a red flag system that is triggered by certain key words and alternative media channels are now dropping off like flies. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth goes over some of the channels that have been effected, the fact that PFT is now in the cross hairs and more importantly what you can do about it!

ThemTube is incredibly biased. They terminated the original channel that belonged to a friend of mine soon after giving it two strikes, for questioning the narrative of MSM’s Florida shooting.  I’d say that is censorship.  I was given a strike on my channel there, so I’ve…
