@WaternooseIII @TheEconomist Wouldn't it be worse to set the precedent that some people don't have to follow rules?

@TheEconomist I understand the premise for the removal of Trump from the platform but I completely agree. The precedent is scary as much as I hate to admit it

@TheEconomist No. Looking to undermine the fundamental principals of our democratic republic is not free speech.

@TheEconomist We agree on the fact that their power should be regulated.
We should also agree that in a perfect world you cannot scream: "There is a BOMB" in the metro without consequences
