I guess it's a free service and they can theoretically do whatever the fuck they want.

But Twitter has free titties, so I'm not leaving voluntarily.
That sounds like the only good reason to be on Twitter. I'd stay too.

Which means that they can get away with allowing people to put the sort of speech that would be illegal; deliberately inciting violence or racial speech or whatever.

So the whole thing becomes voluntary or ad-hoc. But if Big Tech were subject to more regulation, this sort of banning would be more, not less, common.

You’re talking about eliminating Section 230, which is exactly what Trump wants to do and would destroy the Internet as we know it. No thanks.

You may not like it but when big tech can basically censor anything it wants we're treading on some fucked up ice right now..

I'm not on Parler, I'm not on Gab, I'm about done on twitter but one jesus, we're seeing blatant big tech censorship now and nobody is even blinking an eye..

The first I’m hearing of this is today, and for the record I think it’s a huge mistake. Even though private companies have a right to censor, I don’t think they should make sweeping bans like this and de-platform huge swaths of people. It will backfire. You drive these people more underground and they’ll cause a hell of a lot more trouble when we’re least expecting it. There are no group of people on the planet who can’t find a place to gather on the Internet. That’s the good and the bad of it. If you’re one of 5 people in the world who get off on fat transsexual midgets shitting bananas out of their assholes, you’re going to find your people and share your interest.  There’s a place for everyone. To think that you can stop a few million hardcore Trump supporters from finding ways to do exactly what they’re doing now is not only foolhardy and arrogant, it’s dangerous. They will become more ostracized, more radicalized, and more violent. Trying to silence people is never the answer and never changes minds. I feel that way when universities ban conservative speakers and I feel that way now.

So, wait, what’s the deal with other Twitter people? I’m seeing news that Twitter is purging hundreds of thousands of people. Is it more than jus Trump?

Google and Apple can choose to remove any app from their stores. It's not the government doing it, they are not illegal, so this isn't a freedom issue. Just like any other removed app, if you want it, the file is extremely easy to download from the web.

And more people will now than ever before.  This is great advertising for them.

Also, try posting something "leftist" on Parler and see how long you last on the free speech app.

Are you saying this from experience?

Imagine your phone company dropping your phone service for something you said over your phone calls

No, but enough stories about this from many sources that I believe it to be true.

That's not a fair comparison, one is a private conversation and one is a forum accessible by millions. Also, your phone company may well drop your service depending on what you said and to whom.

Phones are accessible to millions too. A private conversation that can still get dropped depending on what's said ? This is kind of the point
