Oops
  • Uber has to automate their account deletion process due to high demand after using surge pricing during protest against Trump’s migration ban. Their open cooperation with the new government (from which Kalanik retracted later) didn’t help. A little too late?
  • Uber also took part together with Microsoft, Facebook, Apple and other tech companies in the open letter sent against migration ban sent to Trump administration. If anything good is to come out of all this, it will certainly be the escalation of donations by multiple tech executives to American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), International Rescue Committee (IRC), UN High Commissioner for Refugees / UN Refugee Agency (UNHR) and other organisations that the unfortunate order has triggered.
