    Here is a recent tweet from Trump. He thinks it is a crime for negative stories about him to trend on twitter. He really cannot understand just how unpopular he is. He thinks it must be a big conspiracy to try to make him look bad, when the reality is he just looks really bad and so people respond to what a asshole he is. 

    Having a president saying that free speech should be illegal is rather disturbing though.

    lol the trending is just an algorithm that detects how many times things are being posted. Trump is basically complaining that stories people post about are bad for him. But that isn't Twitter's fault. It's his fault that he does so much shit that people hate. And he thinks that people sharing their loathing of him should be illegal. That is north korea kind of politics.

    It's illegal to censor content while getting Congressional protections for being a public platform.

    You're not even close to the truth with this thread.

    lol it is the trending system. That is not censoring anything. It is simply highlighting stuff that is popular. 

    this has nothing to do with what trump tweeted about.

    no, an algorithm does. I'm not sure you have a real grasp on how technology works.

    Well considering trump wants to criminalize free speech and is sending armed thugs to attack protesters and his supporters cheer it on, that quote is alot closer to reality than I would like.

    they dont have an algoritim for the tredning hastags, they choose it based on sheer numbers but they can choose which tags they want to add and which they dont

    That's something that should be repealed asap if you give a fuck about free speech.

    Nick Sandman can sue the left-wing radical propaganda rag Washington Post for millions of dollars, but he cannot sue Twitter for spewing the exact same misinformation.

    no, it is determined by an algorithm. It calculates how many times things have been posted and in what time frame. Things that are posted alot in a short time frame are then "trending", things with low numbers of posts or spread over a longer time are not. 

    They are not manually choosing what is trending.

    no they don't.

    I do care about free speech. But I also care that we try to control obscene or misleading content. That law appears to give platforms the ability to censor content that is obscene or lies. Twitter should have the ability to censor content on their platform that is obscene or intentionally misleading. IE, they should be able to ban pornography. They should be able to ban content that is intentionally lies or demonstrably false in an attempt to mislead or misinform people. 

    I agree the bar for what is obscene or misleading speech should be high. But if someone says a million people are dying per day of covid, that is obviously false and misleading. There is no reason we should allow people to spread that.

    common knowledge among right wing conspiracy theorists maybe. But they also probably think that Obama wanted death panels and lots of other ridiculous nonsense.

    Where is your evidence for this? You seem to just be spewing conspiracy theory nonsense.

    What Twitter is doing is illegal under Section 230.
