What does an owners wealth have to do with limiting free speech? And in this specific example, going from public to private will actually help promote free speech.

It's the next logical step after Bezos handed them the keys to the town marketplace

Except Bezos isn't pretending to promote the marketplace being 'free' because he controls it

Took Bezos 1.5 hours to figure out how to weasel out of his original tweet without implicating his own businesses

My reply was meant to be snarky, not compare the 2 exactly. But once were going down that path, think of the leverage China has over AWS and effectively many core pieces of the internet. Hows that for free speech.

 Elon Musk tweeted: Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech.

Not really. He's more of a 1960's college type liberal that wants free exchange of ideas, not today's leftist that wants to force everyone to conform to their view and wants free speech only as long as they agree with it. Many people who ordinarily would be moderate democrats have been pushed to label themselves conservative because of this modern day leftist ideology, even though they are probably more liberal/libertarian when it comes to social issues. And there aren't many stuffy social conservatives as there were back in the day.

good job explaining the difference between a liberal and a leftist
