    Nice work, TWTR Brass... way to alienate 74,000,000 American voters overnight!

    Unsurprisingly, lots of whispers of moving to a new platform that can't be censored so easily.

    Twitter's censorship of the President of the USA was an egregious offense--a real slap in the face. Twitter was a pillar of Trump's campaign, enabling him to bypass the bias of the mainstream media, and deliver a message from his desk to mine.

    Twitter suspending of his account is a terrible insult to the office, a betrayal of trust, and an affront to Free Speech and the First Amendment itself.

    With Twitter gone, we've moved into a kind of Totalitarianism, where we have an endless stream of Left-sided rhetoric, where the "other side of the story," the opposing view, has been gagged.

    It is sickening.

    We know you won't leave Twitter. More importantly, we know corporations globally won't leave Twitter.

    True... I didn't leave MySpace or Friendster either... I just don't have any confidence therein. The next generation of Social Media is upon us: one of decentralized content owned by the publisher.

    No surprise they triggered the uptick rule today.

    Sorry, Twitter is a private concern, and the first amendment does not apply to the content on it's platform.

    Signing up for and using Twitter is a privilege, not a right, which can be revoked at any time. Everyone agrees to this, because you sign an EULA and agree to those terms when you click "I Agree."

    Twitter doesn’t have an obligation to the president. Nor does it control his first amendment rights.

    The president has the ultimate platform. He has a room full of reporters he chooses where he can hold a press conference anytime he wants to.

    odd you would use totalitarianism when the the reason they banned him was for inciting a krystalnacht style riot to obstruct an election process dictated by our constitution.

    btw - remember that post when you said trump knocked it out of the park early in the COVID days? How’d that go?

    Finally, its a dark day when the President of the United States is shut out of most private platforms because he advocates against the United States.

    Put the shoe on the other foot: what if Obama was banned? Hillary? BLM? #metoo? Ghandi? Jesus? <insert your favorite voice here>?

    What would you think, and how would you feel, if that voice mportant to you was gagged and silenced?

    It cannot be dismissed with a wave of the hand, citing their "rights as a corporation." Twitter was a centerpiece of Trump's entire administration... they really pulled the rug out from under him.

    Who will Twitter gag next? Biden? Harris? Fauci?

    You guys would make good lobbyists for the far left and big tech.
