This reads like what Scott Adams would call cognitive dissonance.

In particular it omits the fact that the (anti-Trump) CEO's of twitter and face have access to more data, and presumably better algorithms, but weren't able to swing the election. Almost as if it's easier to influence people if the direction you're trying to influence them agrees with their day-to-day observations. But that's way to scary a thought for the people at the guardian.
