Internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has announced that he would like to build a new social network.

He described Facebook and Twitter as “deep state conspirators” and said it was “time for something better”.

Writing on Twitter, he also invited CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and the German hacker association Chaos Computer Club (CCC) to join him.

Mr Dotcom is currently fighting extradition to the US from New Zealand.

He is wanted there to stand trial for copyright infringement and fraud, which he has consistently denied.
