These recent changes could be devastating to popular mainstream media like SoraNews24 that have become so dependent upon Twitter as a primary source of “news” & “opinions”.

Not a fan of Twitter, but also not a fan of posting videos of mentally ill people having a breakdown so others on Twitter can laugh at them, say they are horrible, and call them "karens." It's very much like small village bullying, but on a global scale.

It's one thing to call out a public figure, especially a politician, but most of these "horrible" people are just ordinary and formerly obscure citizens who are clearly having mental health issues. I don't see the point.

This is just going to be used as a tool to stop citizen journalism. If someone gets attacked and tried to upload proof, they will be banned for no having gotten permission to upload the pic of anyone in the crowd. Three guesses as to which side this will apply to.

Parag Agrawal is known to be anti free speech.

The key quote is the following:

The company noted a "disproportionate effect on women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities."

This is how Twitter justifies discriminating against some speech in favor of other speech that the service itself supports. Twitter has merely become a propaganda outlet for the Left.

Thought Trump was already doing that, twice I think?

Yes, more to come, and more people should throw their hats in the race, and create various versions of social media platforms.
