1. No they can't

We agree on that

2. I wouldn't agree with your characterization.  People who make extreme statements get stigmatized in society, not much to be said about that.

None of those Twitter abusers use their own names? There is nothing to stigmatize or hold them accountable for their extreme statements. I'm with anyone who stands up to people like that. I don't have to agree with them.

3. There are some efforts to extinguish free discussion, I agree, but not clear to me if this registers as a serious problem or not.  ie. if the scale of this warrants a general concern

I think it does.
