I hope Dorsey's arrogance has finally gone so far to lead to his destruction. Thinks he's bigger than the leaders of countries. Hope the stock drops like a rock and the stockholders sue him and take everything he has.

They are smart enough to realize that if Twitter and Silcon Valley tech oligarchs can cut off the POTUS, they can cut of their leaders with ease.

And Jack gloats over how their collusion took down a competitor. Parler was the #1 app until they took them down. Little weasel.

It's because GOP senators understand that removing section 230 would cause the internet to grind to a halt.

For instance, GT Swagger could be held liable for the crazy **** you people post on here.

Not if he doesn't start editing content, like Twitter and Facebook are doing.

Mods edit content for language and personal attacks and more.

Removal of Section 230 of the DMCA would cause me to pay a lawyer to rewrite the AUP to be an iron fist. I would probably even require acceptance of the AUP just to browse the site as a guest if that happened.

You know you've gone too Far when the Germans criticize you for censorship...

The French are upset too...
https://fortune.com/2021/01/11/problemat...nce-trump/

The French MP was basically trolling Twitter, he replaced his user picture with one of Trump and then tweeted out "Help". then they banned him for "impersonating trump"

And every Democrat is OK with this because they’re “private companies”

If that’s the case, small business owners: OPEN UP SHOP & NEVER close for the government again

Why not open up and refuse to serve anyone with a differing opinion? Oh yeah! The democrats go bat chit crazy when that happens. Except for this BS.

Or how about not picking and choosing when it’s ok to discriminate. You guys fail to realize that these sports boards ban people all the time when their speech gets out of hand. That’s why they have moderators. This is their right as is twitters.


The moderation of these sports boards and this one in particular is pretty even handed. There’s not obvious bias and there is hundreds of other sports boards to go to if you feel you are discriminated against. Not so in social media. These big tech companies have just proven that they can suppress speech and destroy competitors using collusion and intimidation.
This should trouble all. Even liberals if you can be honest with yourself.
didn’t say there was bias. But there are guidelines and rules. Twitter had rules set in place. They were violated.

"We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the OpenInternet"

What a bunch of freaking hypocrites. Do as I say not as I do.
