    See Trump after Charlottesville. He went out of his way not to criticize him. Also

    Trump says he's not a racist. That's not how white nationalists see it - CNNPolitics

    Yeah, you got to try harder than that. He already condemned the hate that got thrown around in all of that mess. So if your only action here is to make something what it's not, then I've got bad news for you on that front.

I'm not sure why it's controversial to say they have a liberal bias, many tech companies(like facebook) will admit as such. For myself, i just got rid of my twitter account, but i do use a fake one just to lurk. Twitter is just an all around horrible platform i think, but so many people use it, so i have to be able to follow along what people are saying, and expose the idiot journalists.
    Not to be too snarky, but exactly what 'utility' does twitter offer? Utilities provide light, power, heat, water, etc. Twitter provides what? Communication? Sure, in a technical sense. I for one don't see much 'utility' in it, and it looks like you are starting not to either.

    A public platform for free speech. What was a public forum/open podium back 100 years ago, is now twitter 24/7. So it's are they really offering a product, or just repackaging a public utility? There is a good argument for either one, and I think it's one of those gray areas that society as a whole should decide, with minimal controversy. There is really no right or wrong answer there.
