Ats also let's you post more than 240 characters. Though sometimes it's hard to remember that going through some threads.

What would Happen If Twitter Banned President Trump ? Hmm...They would Suddenly Become a Public Utility Subject to regulation ? Hmm...

I just see it as them running their business how they like, seems like a right wing snowflake is whining and crying to me

Twitter is partisan.

ATS is not.


you are as partisan as it gets you can't post without calling someone a socialist or commie


It's not about us, the posters, being non-partisan. it's about all of us being able to speak our minds without worrying that because you or I speak from the wrong mind, we're going to be booted for it. It's increasingly clear that certain other social media platforms ban you for wrongthink alone, not merely for being incivil in your wrongthink.

Isn't there something to be said regarding the size of Twitter and it's sphere of influence over financial markets, public policy, public/private news reporting, society, culture, politics, etc, etc ?

Twitter is a beast.

It's sheer scope has to be accounted for when comparing it to ATS.

It has been mentioned before that if they want to run their business like a church of progressive thought only, then that's how they need advertise themselves. They should not advertise themselves as a platform open to any and all because they clearly are not.

Last I checked Trump was still allowed to post multiple times a day every day and Twitter had banned people from both sides of the aisle, antifa for example, so I'm wondering where you're getting the idea that Twitter is a "church of progressive thought only"?

Victim complex is strong in this thread.

pretty no one in this thread even uses it, I use it mostly to communicate with other IT people and get help on stuff but I follow Cernovich and others and they post right wing crap all day long with no problems

That boosted my respect for twitter.

Thanks. Maybe they aren't so bad. Still an authoritarian hell hole....but with a heart.

Maybe I'll give them that semen sample after all.

You can be wrong on Twitter all day long too.

Why is Trump given free reign to post all day every day if they're so partisan and left-leaning? You realize they have banned antifa accounts too? Where was your outrage when they did that?

Consistency is key to being taken seriously, you lack it from my perspective.


I'll answer even though you've become boring.

Trump is given free reign because it makes them money. They don't care what he says, but Twitter caters to the moronic left so Twitter provides a platform for them to go after Trump.

THAT'S why Twitter allows Trump.

They probably banned a random Antifa account because they couldn't cover for those assholes without making themselves look like total leftist tools.

But that's all beside the point and not on topic.

Ah ok, so you have no issue with Trump helping to fund Twitter but you have an issue with Twitter itself? That's not a very consistent standpoint you've got there.

If it weren't for Twitter you wouldn't have a direct line to Trump outside of the media, right? On one hand you praise Trump for bypassing the media but on the other you are bashing the platform he chose to use. Make up your mind.

I know everything is being set up to make everyone look like a hypocrite but try to rise above it and be consistent in your beliefs. At least try.

Good point. Also I would like to point out as a Twitter user with a few right leaning ideas of my own I think the entire thread premise is based off the mainstream coverage of Twitter and Facebook

Who btw are being used to bypass the media

Silly people these are. They know so little
