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?

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.

You are claiming that they have two choices, express their own viewpoint or not express their own viewpoint. And you want the latter choice to trigger a government punishment in the form of civil liability. Civil liability for expressing a viewpoint in their media product. 1/2

This is not the law today. And cannot be the law ever because this is precisely what the First Amendment prohibits. 2/2

You want social media sites to be punished with liability for their speech even when they've done nothing wrong. Liability for wrongful conduct discourages wrongful conduct, but liability for speech in the absence of wrongful conduct just thuggishly censors. 1/2

All I know is that BTC is the king for tweeter. No real love for XRP. They copy the idea of the XRP TipBot. First they banned it and then they copied the idea. @WietseWind is the real one.
