Twitter is not the government. You are.
I mean, f’n duh.
Not a 1A issue bc the gov isn’t restricting his speech. Twitter, for that matter, didn’t even restrict his speech.
Alyssa Milano @Alyssa_Milano
Nope. Just correcting your lies.

It’s a private platform, dipshit.
Twitter is a private company. They are allowed to call out your lies. This is a America. You know what we call a leader who dictates speech rules to private companies?
lol there’s literally nothing Trump can do about that.
Actually, Twitter is not part of the government and can do whatever they want to choose what appears and doesn’t appear.
You are part of the government, so you can’t.
That’s called the First Amendment.
The rule of law frustrates you so much and your frustration is gorgeous.
Fact checking isn’t censorship.
Welcome to rules.
You’re free to deactivate your account.
Oh thats what I was missing today. A laugh. Thanks for that
And on and on.
