    They do it all the time. They don't allow pornography, classified information, certain kinds of violence...

    IMO, Twitter's argument is actually very solid. They left Trump's account open and unsuspended all this time in the spirit of democracy and free speech. But, when he used the platform to support a coup (and, key point, a coup that was actually attempted), he was subverting the spirit of democracy and violating the basic regulations behind free speech (no inciting violence).

    Couple things:

    1) Here’s an article - 150 topics the majorities of Rep and Dem agree upon. https://publicconsultation.org/defe...ch-majorities-of-republicans-democrats-agree/

    2) President Trump speech is here. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.al...ript-donald-trump-january-6-incendiary-speech
    Please point out the parts that show Trump supportive of an “insurrection” (a violent uprising against an authority or government)

    Plus "stand back and stand by", his refusal to condemn the plot to kidnap Michigan's governor, his tardiness in (mildly) criticizing the domestic terrorists (while still talking about election fraud again and again).

    Trump is smart enough to always give himself outs. He never directly says "go hang people". But he is constantly winking and dog-whistling to his supporters both in his rhetoric and in the way he condemns bad actions. The whole "election fraud" conspiracy is completely created out of thin air.

    If this gets down to the $40 level, I may take a closer look
