If Twitter wants to be able to censor or moderate content then they should lose government protection for the content on their site. Can鈥檛 have it both ways.

So you believe that the government should punish Twitter (with civil liability) because Twitter expresses an opinion? Isn't that precisely what the First Amendment prohibits?

Why don鈥檛 you ask Trump lmaoooooo wowzerz !!!!!!!
Expressing ones opinion and censoring an other's are very different things. Twitter loses that privilege the moment they decide to edit someone else's opinion. Besides that article covered small start up companies which twitter isn't anymore.

Media companies express their opinions largely by deciding which statements by which people they include in their media products. I have no idea what "privilege" you are talking about. Do you mean the privilege of freedom of the press?

Is there not a difference between expressing your viewpoint with words and expressing your viewpoint by eliminating someone else from expressing theirs? I think I understand your point, I think. Analogy, free speech doesn鈥檛 allow someone to put a political sign up in my yard

If I don鈥檛 agree with it and give permission. The guess the problem here is Twitter lives under the guise of being a public social platform but in all actuality is a private social platform

You don鈥檛 get to hide behind safeguards claiming your not a publisher of content when you are intentionally prohibiting and curating information. They are preventing the organic free flow of information through censorship to manufacture 鈥渘ews鈥 to fit a narrow narrative.

Don鈥檛 think you understand. They are protected by the government from getting sued for what people post, but they are banning people for not seeing the world through twitters messed up lens. They are deciding what news you should see and who you shouldn鈥檛.

They don't regulate what citizens can say. The decide what speech they will not host. People can still say whatever without Twitter.

Nope, I鈥檓 thinking Twitter should either be a publisher or a moderator, one or the other. If they want to be a publisher, then they must allow all opinions but take not responsibility for them. If they want to be a moderator they can take a side but are responsible for it.
