Leftists censorship.

It's ok though, few think leftists like yourself ever cared about free speech anyway.

If it continues, I doubt he's gonna be able to put together the kind of ad revenue that'd make a self-titled network viable.

How is this censorship? Are private companies obliged to cater for people they disapprove of? He is free to speak his mind. No-one is obliged to publicise what he says.

Of course they waited until the Dems took control of the Senate before acting.
Totally a valid point

Although, the fact that this is permanent speaks to a larger issue, rather than one confined simply to them covering their asses.

If government officials can be censored on official accounts, then you are indeed further along than you think. If twitter accepts an official presidental account, then I hold them to let whatever President to say whatever they want.

A government official, like it or not, was hired by the people.

Government officials are accountable to the people through elections.

If they say something you don't approve, vote them out.

Anything less is censorship.

Thus confirming they are an appendage of the democrat party.
On the contrary, confirming that they are good old capitalists who want to run a profit, then ditch an unprofitable line when necessary and hoping to avoid any controls on their behaviour being imposed in the future.

You act as if people don't know what twitter leadership is all about. Are you really that shallow to think twitter seeing their friends take over power is a coincidence?

Social media websites are PRIVATELY OWNED. They can de-platform anybody they want. Are you against private businesses being able to refuse service?

It is when private companies have special projections because they are a so called platform.

Sure, the way the law stands for these monopolies is they can do whatever they want, like de-platforming competition.

The government should have no official presence on them to avoid the issue altogether.

But they are a part of your Big Liberal Machine, so it works for you. Maybe the ACLU will come to their senses and give you liberals some sensible marching orders.
