    The only question is will the left stop using Twitter because they will no longer ban the conservative voices. A typical leftist pout-fest.
    You being from the left do not feel restricted, because the left owns all major communications in the USA all the way to the phone companies. For conservatives Twitter may be the first large public forum we can share in.
    First, at the risk of sounding like I'm trying to make this all about me, I have to say that being characterized as "from the left", when so many of my views are anything but, is strange, and leads me to believe that I'm not explaining myself as well as I might be. Arguing that an American citizen cannot have his or her property shanghaied, whether to deliver a message or to prevent one from being sent, is not a particularly "left-ish" position.

    Secondly, I'm by no means blind to what's going on with some politicians, or to the pressures to which they're subjecting social media outlets.

    However, as the writer suggests in the article's last paragraph, the best answer is to target and punish those politicians by voting them out of office.

    Thank G-d -- a huge victory for Freedom.

    Nevertheless, Freedom still hangs in balance.

    So.

    1) Elon Musk bought Twitter.
    2) Midterms were a draw.
    3) Amnesty for banned accounts, including many I like begins tomorrow.


    Will Elon Musk manage to keep Twitter free? Only time will tell.

    I don't like the format. I don't see how it would be of any use to me.

    Note, I don't often even look at my cell phone.

    I also do not have a Twitter account since Summer.

    Hopefully Free Speech on Twitter can at least influence more people to vote Republican in 2024.

    I want to promote the candidacy of someone for public office, and I want to put a sign in your front yard. Yes, I know it's your property, but I still believe that you're violating my right to free speech if you don't allow me to use it.

    Dear Standing Wolf, now the front yard belongs to Elon Musk. Hopefully his business will succeed.

    What is left to do is to encourage/pressure Elon to ban Progressives. But that is likely to occur only if he succeeds. Only time will tell.

    You're joking of course, right? Or do you genuinely see banning one viewpoint (and on how many issues?) with which you disagree as a way to restore and promote what you call "free speech"?

    When Progressives have power, they censor and destroy careers of tens or hundreds of thousands of people.

    Thus, they should not expect to be treated better in places where they do not have power.
