Twitter did this secretly, through algorithms, and other practices, like shadow banning and suppressing content.  Without being transparent about it.  Withholding it from the public, users and even share holders.
Someone one post you mock a call for non-profit news, and on another post you decry the actions of for-profit news.

...In every man there are two shadys.

You know how Musk was a "free speech" advocate? (Well except for his double standard where he has kept Alex Jones off the platform, but racists, trolls and terrorists are allowed back on.)

Well, apparently not everyone is welcome.

Several left-wing activists on Twitter have been suspended from the platform after far-right users launched a false-report campaign.

Quote
Prominent left-wing accounts have been banned from Twitter since Musk's takeover, the Intercept reported first. This includes Chad Loder, an anti-fascist researcher who identified a Proud Boy member involved in the US Capitol Riots on January 6 2021.
.
Loder said Musk's free speech campaign is really just about "bringing back a lot of legitimate violent neo-Nazi accounts. He has "thrown his lot in with far-right extremists and they have his ear," and he is "in an echo chamber of his own design." 

"We're seeing far-right voices crowded into the space while far-left voices are being pushed out of the space."

Elon suspends Kanye for inciting violence. Maybe it's not as easy as he thought for a large corporation to host these far-right trolls. 🤣

I suspect its just a "smoke screen/diversion". Ban one high-profile user who stepped over the line to distract from the fact that you have let dozens/hundreds of similar people have free reign on Twitter. "See, look! I'm not a bad guy. Please love me again!"

c'mon man! Musk had the twitKeys... as for timing, your comprehension difficulty fails to recognize just when the U.S. mid-term elections were - you doofus!
Sounds like thatís proper procedure.  If somebody incites violence they are banned.  Whatís the problem?

It's wild how "free speech" advocates who mock doofy lefty platitudes like "words are violence" can approve of banning someone for merely posting an image with no call to action involved.

Libtards:  The far-right has free reign!

Also Libtards:  Musk is banning the far-right for just posting an image!

Make up your mind libtards.  Make up your mind.

Are you for or against banning people from twitter for their speech? I can't tell.

Or is it like the question about Danielle Smith's proposed legislation...something you can't answer because you haven't got your talking points yet?  😆

I have no problem. It was something you were wailing about just a few weeks ago though.

The issue is what the terms of service are.  Itís probably a little too complicated for you, so never mind.

That's a good strategy for pretending you aren't a total hypocrite and a d!ck-riding Musk fanboy, but I don't think you're fooling anyone else

I like how logic and reason completely trigger you! 😂

I'm not triggered and I saw no logic or reason. I just saw a Musk fanboy admit that his wailing about free speech was only part of his role as a far-right Musk fanboy and had nothing to do with any actual convictions.
It's fun watching you become a grovelling hypocrite though...once again. 🤣
