On forums like this for a start. Then email all the people on your email list and encourage them to join you. It is possible to get it going.

I think you're onto something here

Best course of action is to quit before you start because life is unfair

So strong.

Nor can you mention other automotive or non sponsored websites here.
You can get the word out thru other media, word of mouth, conservative radio, conservative TV (Fox News, OAN among others). It can be done, it will be difficult but not impossible. I don't think its realistic to expect a direct competitor to advertise a rival product though

Best course of action is to have a ****-ton of experience in the industry before you make yourself look like an *** talking about something you clearly know nothing about. Pretty clear you don't and you have, respectively.

That's kind of the point. They've cornered so much of the market, especially collectively, there's not a whole lot of room but for table scraps. Aside from not allowing advertisement for or any content from or about your platforms, they will also do everything in their power to vilify your platforms. All of this would have to happen in parallel, creating the next Google, the next Facebook, the next Twitter, the next YouTube, all would have to be launched around the same time, working with each other. On top of that they would need a gazillion dollars to market it, all to gain a couple percent of market share to start. Good luck finding investors willing to invest that kind of money for that much risk.

But they've cornered the market or amassed a huge market share by being innovative and second, buying anyone that was better than themselves and adding that service to their own.
Alternatives can be created and are created everyday, as they gain users a popularity, they grow. The big players could attempt to vilify your platform OR, you could create a platform with features that the others dont have such as protecting user data by having a default "Opt Out". This feature itself could be used to vilify FB and Twitter.

I get what you're saying, but it's so much more than that. On top of the technical challenges, there's always legal challenges; the copyright/patent infringement you'd be facing from each/all of these giants. They'd bury you in legal charges and challenges, you'd have a pile of cease and desist orders before you could even get out the gate, and if you managed to get out the gate, then there's complying with all the new crazy laws coming out of places like Europe that _only_ tech giants with deep pockets and armies of legal experts will be able to overcome. If I sound pessimistic, it's for good reason. Between the giants themselves and all the folks in .gov they've lobbied to do their bidding, it's damn near impossible to even get a start. We're living in a unique time, one that makes the monopolies of the late 19th century and early 20th century look like an even playing field.
