And being an outlet for news and politicians, the concern of course is whether they would apply the same level of censorship, banning or influencing of their own elections. Can't say I blame them. And Dorsey is retarded if he didn't anticipate this as well as other members following those they banned.

    Well said my friend.
    This new censorship is indeed a very foreboding signal to those that truly love freedom and this our nation.
    As it meets with cheers from the party that received so great a benefit from it- the corrupt dem party and all of their ilk.
    Think it will be firmly cemented in the next 4 years and thus not ever be stopped.
    And that is very likely to be the tragedy and the death of freedom in the future, imho.-Tyr
