Which public utility? The internet? You have no rights on the internet. You agree to use Twitter, it's their house. If they don't want you to say something, or feel like banning you, even for no legitimate reason, you have no recourse.
Just like you have no rights to be in my house if I say so.
Eta there is nothing public about the internet at all. It's all served, owned, and run by corporate entities.
Even if the house in question advertises itself as a publishing platform open to all which it does.
If there are certain views the platform does not want, they need to say so openly, but they won't because they know the backlash and lost revenue that would happen.
