I guess I'm just shocked that people spend so much time on Twitter and put that much value on what is posted to it and by whom.
I think anything like the below example (given in the article) would go a long way in cleaning up the "town square" discussions.
But the problem that is ultimately run into, regardless of the digital platform, is when content that doesn't fall into the measurable and verifiable category gets deleted because someone doesn't "like it". In other words, having opinions deleted because "we" don't like them or agree with them. That is where the tug-of-war comes into play. But again, the person that owns the platform ultimately should have the right to run it the way they want and if enough people don't like it, it will "go out of business" or only attract a certain "customer base". This may be the intent of the owner, to begin with.
