Twitter is clearly no longer an open platform, rather a publisher. And should be liable for their content and open to suit.

Welcome to the new world order: The Parler app known for free speech has been removed from the Google Play Store on Friday. Apple gave Parler 24 hours to submit a detailed moderation plan.

Wow
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

According to Google one twitter follower is worth $2.50/month. So they just shut down a $2,640,000,000/year business with no recourse.

Incredible.

I can't imagine Telegram is banning Trump anytime soon, and they seem too big to throw off app stores. I wonder if that will be the next Trump platform.

There is likely to be a massive shift with Twitter (and many businesses) where conservatives and liberals patronize different companies.

$2500 sounds very high.

Serves them right, let them cannibalize their own business to advance managements political bent. Shareholders should take their money elsewhere.

So now Twitter went from social media, to left leaning platform. Until now they acted as if they are neutral.
I hope it's all downhill from here for them. >:(

I do not agree with this.
Not in technicalities/legalities whether it's a publisher or not. In the (sarcastic?) opinion as a whole.
