His Twitter account has now been suspended meaning he has now been suspended from all social media.

While I do not agree with Trump's rabble rousing following the election, I think it sets a very dangerous precedent. Social media should be a platform for free speech - that of course does not involve hate speech, threats of violence etc (though Twitter etc, seem to pick and choose when it comes to this too). People should also not be silenced for saying stupid things, they should be free to put their thoughts out there and we should be able to disagree, point out the flaws in their arguments etc. I think it is very dangerous if big tech companies become the arbiters of truth. Having lived in China, I can say that I am very grateful that we have social media where people are free to openly criticise the government and have even unpopular or unsavoury opinions! That is true liberal democracy.

For those that inevitably argue that social media platforms should get to decide what is published on their platform, differing from regular free speech laws - then they should in kind be treated as publishers and be fully responsible for everything published on their platform. You can't pick and choose!

They will keep getting away with this stuff unless the people step up... but we all know that isn’t happening.

Trump is banned on all platforms, twitter purging trumpers, parler about to be removed from the appstore

"but... but this is c0mMuN1sM..."

Nah, this is pure unadulterated capitalism. Conservatives cried about muh free market for years, well this is what happens when the corrupt politicians you keep electing write the laws to enrich themselves and multinational corporations. Reap what you sow.

It's not hard to see what he has been trying to do. Anyone inciting at your workplace is likely escorted out of the building....anyone inciting on a forum/platform is asking to get banned. Twitter was scared to do it years ago, and you will notice their reference to previous years.
Except I've seen countless DNC politicians inciting riots on social media without consequence so...

Capitalism right?

jUsT mAkE yOuR oWn if you want it different.


This isn't capitalism. Competition isn't allowed to even exist. This is communist take over by multinational corporations and big tech that have grown more powerful than our elected officials.

I guess Islamic terrorists deserve a platform as well or it will be considered communism.

RINOs. We hate them and you should too. But it looks like you are really enjoying the corrupt shit they provided and always share with the DNC establishment. If you hadn't noticed Biden's and Bush's are buddies. As are the McCains as are the Obamas and Romneys. They are all friends. Which side are you on?

Why would you want your politicians to hate each other instead of working together? Lol which side are you on? Is this twilight fan-fic?

Bullshit! Blame your fellow man and woman for big tech. Google, Twitter, Apple etc all had relatively humble beginnings. It was societal preferences and the businesses growth that formed big tech. A company has the right to do ignore whoever it wants. Doesn't matter whether that is you or an elected official.

You're arguing against capitalism.

15 years ago world leaders didn't even use Twitter. I find it terrifying that they are now utterly powerless without it.

Less terrifying in Trump's case, of course. But still terrifying. I remember when it didn't exist, and now it holds more power than the president of the world's most powerful country.

I'm no expert on this type of law or any type of law for that matter but it seems social networks like Twitter and Facebook may be allowed to shun or cozy up to any person or group that apparently is in their best interest as a business. As far as Facebook or Twitter, I have no use for either unless they came in 2-ply.

Blame my fellow man and woman? Elite's love it when you turn on your neighbors. Takes the heat off of their corruption. Go fight in the street over black or white! Fight over race! Fight over class! Fight over republican/democrat! Don't look at us and that we just agreed on a spending bill just jammed packed with pork while we give you $600.

Citizens have been screaming for years for big tech to be reigned in. This is a failure of our elected officials who are selling the power of our country down the river to multi national corporations. Why should I blame my frikkin dumb ass neighbors for this? Are you insane? Ah yes, Bob next door is to blame. Not fucking Lindsey Graham and Nancy Pelosi. Good call.

Nothing good comes from people like Mitch McConnel and Nancy Pelosi trading favors. They are corrupt beyond belief. They have high paying doners to please and kick backs to secure. Take a look at that last spending bill they agreed on. The tiny fraction that was spent on the suffering citizens vs the boat load of pork sent overseas. These people have contempt for the average citizen and that's why I don't want them working together. We need to uproot this whole fucking thing.
