I thought you agreed with Timcast that it was the biggest news story of our lives?

it is a big story, but I know nothing will happen and find it funny

I don't think govt should be involved in social media at all

If the tweets violated twitter rules, then it was OK (like the tweets the Biden campaign requested to be removed).

Therefore, any president or governmental official can and should have some input into how Twitter allows information to be presented?

Any government official should be able to report tweets to twitter, yes.  Twitter should not be required to do anything about it.

the right-wing is making a mistake in their arguments here.

if you want to argue that government should not interfere in the affairs of twitter, that is a losing argument because no-one is forcing twitter to do anything.  the REAL issue is antitrust practices of the MSM and the business sector that constitutes a monopoly of one school of thought.  you want to apply the Sherman Antitrust Act to break up this monopoly and force media companies to provide services to all schools of thought.  

You could also argue the practices of Twitter and other media companies violate the civil rights act, for example where they allow people to post virulent hate against whites but shut down similar things against non-whites.  that is discrimination against race and violates the CRA.  

but the government does not control twitter or any media company.  instead you have to think of this more in terms of the Woolworth's lunch counter issue, where corporations are using quotas to block people from getting access or being hired.

How's that?  Horsesass spends him time on here bragging about his fake hot wife and calling others lifelosers.

Come to find out this fake hetero comes out as homo so I'm gonna call it out.  Try not to be so sensitive. 

Time for Life Lessons for Life Losers. 

Using homophobic slurs as insults isnt only derogatory to the LGBTQ community, it shows how weak and insecure you are with your own masculinity.  It's a telltale sign of a Life Loser who has trouble pleasing a woman.  Most likely very few if any orgasms for the females you've been with. Man-up, embrace sexuality. Take testosterone and work out.

I might suggest that corporations are not engaging with the moronic "woke" actions without consequences.  Therefore they are paying for the patronizing nonsense, and eventually investment will respond to them being willing to lose money to play the virtue signaling games.

The communication of "advice" or any other guidance to Twitter about how to assess information suitable for use on their platform.  If the government wants to reach out to them and suggest that they include or exclude something, we are just fine with that behavior.

Ok, agreed.  Hence some of us saying the #twitterfiles contained no bombshells

If you ever start winning remember its your obligation to pass on what I've taught you. For free. Be a man, quit being such a selfish whining b!tch and give back.

The government pressured Facebook and Twitter to censor on behalf of a political party.  That’s a violation of the first amendment.

We know they had meetings.  We don’t know if there was “pressure.”

And we also know that twitter did not always comply with their requests.
