Twitter likes being in the Censorship Business

Twitter announces:
A lot has changed since 2012. It is now more important than ever that we shine a light on our own practices, including enforcement of the Twitter Rules and our ongoing work to disrupt global state-backed information operations.
It goes on to complain about how it has had to comply with legal demands from governments to remove content.

This is so dishonest. Twitter has put itself in the censorship business, as it bans posts from Donald Trump and others purely because of the political prejudices of Twitter.

Twitter has also assumed the role of enforcing official US propaganda. You have to comply with official positions of the US CDC on the coronavirus, or get banned.

Facebook and Google have taken similar positions.
