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. >:(

Twitter is clearly no longer an open platform, rather a publisher. And should be liable for their content and open to suit.
I do not agree with this.
Not in technicalities/legalities whether it's a publisher or not. In the (sarcastic?) opinion as a whole.

:o

So a while back when they “inadvertently” shut down a bunch of conservative accounts, it was just a trial run?

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

Did you not see the post about the Parler app being removed from the app stores? Are we going to build a new OS also?

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.
I think there are enough trump fans to boycott anything that shuts down their voices... must be done the right way... trump can do it...
