You keep using that word "journalist" ...

Wherein fake journalist David Akin decries freedom of speech ...


You'd think a journalist might have just a teensy bit more respect for free speech. Then again, that would be assuming David Akin is an actual journalist so, well, there's that.

I wonder if he still thinks Gordon LIghtfoot is dead.

Twitter bans have nothing to do with free speech. The right of free speech is meant to prevent governments from banning people from speaking out in the public square. Twitter, as a private entity, has it's own set of rules which by signing up for an account, you agreed to follow. If you want to voice your opinions on social media, I recommend you get an account on https://gab.ai

Here's hoping you don't violate my "free speech" by moderating or not approving this comment.😉 From your friend, the 🐀

Violate your free speech? Heavens to Betsy, whatever for? However, it might not be as simple as you think. As a "quasi-public" forum, Twitter might be obligated to respect due process just like anyone else.

In particular, if Twitter promises an appeal process when you're suspended, then ignores every single appeal submission (as they did with me), then they're violating their own Terms of Service.

You might want to be careful about jumping to conclusions here.
