If Jim Banks is unhappy with Twitter’s rules of service he’s free not to use their platform.

If Twitter wants to be able to censor or moderate content then they should lose government protection for the content on their site. Can’t 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’m 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.

Responsible in what way? As in they're prohibited from certain speech, but in a way that's all just groovy with the 1st Amendment?

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're kind of just making up your own idea of what those words mean.
