Of course not! Every person, rich or poor should have an equal opportunity to make a fool of themselves without restraint.
Do you think Trump should be banned from Twitter

I agree. I'm no particular fan of Trump (nor am I particularly against him) but I can't understand the left's obsession with shutting him down.
Think he's racist? Bigoted? Xenophobic? Anything else? Let him run his mouth. Milo Yiannopoulos too. All the other people.
Let them run their mouths so the whole world can see what you claim to see: racism and bigotry and all the other buzzwords. Don't explain, show. Let them say the things you're so worried about so that you can point to something and say "see? Racist." You don't have to explain it, you don't have to shape the narrative, you don't have to jump through hoops to try and convince anybody, it's just stone cold obvious racism/whatever.
If you think they have horrible things to say, and you want everybody else to agree with you, I cannot fathom not allowing them to say those horrible things so there's no doubt left in anybody's mind.

I think Twitter should say that if you want to use their product, you have to think and act and speak as they determine.
