It is not free speech suppression when a private company moderates its content. You want to peddle your crap then create your own platform, like the idiots did with Truth Social. Plus, I don't give a rats crap about the suppression of misinformation and lies.

Of course it is, it's simple not protected as it's a not a government entity. That doesn't change the definition of what's happening.

I've ZERO issue with a private business suppressing free speech (content moderation) on its own platform - even if it's unfair in some way or another. Heck, we suppress free speech here on TF.com. But this was supposedly the impetus of Musk buying Twitter, so I'm interested to see what (if anything) is revealed.

I agree and I'll at least look at what he has to offer. His mouth (or tweets in this case) have written a lot of checks his butt better be able to cash. I don't have a problem with the previous regime silencing dissent as long as they weren't doing so at the behest of the U.S. government; that I have a BIG problem with.

Well yes, I agree. I was responding to his tweet about "free speech suppression" on twitter. I argue that there is no free speech on Twitter because the 1st amendment doesn't protect that and Twitter has the right to moderate however it wants, like TF.

This would turn it into a 1st amendment issue.

This would definitely depend on the context/source, and could be an exciting legal drama if the US was combating agitprop/misinformation coming from overseas bad actors through Twitter. We know the three letter acronym agencies work on these kinds of things all of the time.

This guy.....I can only imagine what type of howling lunacy is going on inside his head. Props to Musk for doing this.
So Musk solved a problem he himself created? Such a brilliant guy and defender of "free speech".
