I don't know that I believe Twitter has a moral responsibility to allow everyone to tweet, either. It is an interesting and nontrivial question, though. I think that, if I had to choose, I'd shut down Trump's Twitter account, as it's incredibly stupid for him to expose his thought processes to the entire world in such a fashion. Trump's relation to Twitter is that of a private citizen, even if he is the president.

So, in your opinion, a private company is not allowed to choose who is allowed the privilege of using its product? How are you defining "right" here?

That's a BS excuse. If he's breaching national security that's a crime. If he does that charge him with something specific.

Libs just don't like him communicating directly with the people and want to take this media platform away from him.

They love it when they can hold a press conference and march out a bunch of liberal reporters to accuse him of everything under the sun. Nope. I would rather he stay on Twitter. They can't obfuscate or twist around his tweets.


The president ought to understand that repeated, unfiltered public statements like tweets allow foreign powers to analyse his psyche. This is dangerous - and incredibly stupid.

It used to be that we held people to standards of decency and honor.


More BS excuses. Trump has more decency and honor in a toenail than obama has in his entire body.

I suspect that ISIS is funded and probably heavily influenced by the CIA. It was formed in 2014 when it broke away from Al-Quada. If so then obama is involved in every one of their acts of terror, and John Brennan would have been directly involved. I wonder if ISIS will start winding down now that he's out.

I could also bring up Benghazi or the IRS targeting, or any number of other scandals during his presidency. He had more of them than any other president in my lifetime.

I think Nixon was more honest.

just because you don't like what he says doesn't mean you should ban him

I am not entirely sure of my own standards, still thinking those out, though I usually settle for the consistent application of the rules they follow rather than what they should be when it comes to my general criticism of social media. I believe the laws lag in certain places on the internet. I believe consistency is a virtue, at the very least.

I think it'd be bad for their business if they banned Trump

We're not talking about Obama. Through his Twitter feed, Trump is revealing his petulance to the whole world. This is unwise for a leader of a powerful country. A rational strategy would dictate that he stop. It doesn't matter how honorable or dishonorable Obama was; that is a red herring. Trump is the president now, and if he wants us to think he cares more about America than his own ego, he should stop tweeting.

Also, what you just espoused is a conspiracy theory. No sane, introspective person thinks what you just said about ISIS.

Imagine if he didn't use Twitter, or if he was banned from using it at the start. We wouldn't know exactly how much of a nutcase Trump is. I mean, we'd still know he's a man baby but it'd only be a fraction of what we know now.

Well that took an extreme authoritarian turn. If Twitter banned Trump, that would be one thing, they are a private company. If Congress passed a law banning him, however, rather than be happy with it I would be terrified.

I don't recall anyone ever mentioning trump getting banned from twitter. Hardly think stating the obvious is news.


There were dozens of articles and SJW crybabies whining about Trump and that he should be banned from Twitter during and after the election.
That's why the CEO of twitter had to say this in an interview
