Delete Trump's twitter account for violating its terms of service.

"Twitter's CEO will also face angry Republicans who claim the companies have shown evidence of bias against conservatives."

Yeah, right, when they only kick out white supremacists AFTER extreme pressure? When Dorsy lets nutjobs like Alex Jones stay on despite literally threatening Mueller's life, going much further than others who have been banned?

If anything, the companies have been giving the conservatives too much room to run wild when they should be put on a leash.

It is absolutely disturbing that "we don't want Russia to meddle in US elections" is a position that actually needs defending. But then again:

Thirteen Russians were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller earlier this year on charges of an elaborate plot to disrupt the 2016 U.S. presidential election by creating fake accounts that pushed divisive issues on social media.

...It's absolutely disturbing that there are people who are so blinkered by their party-over-country ideology that they are unaware that this happened.
