    Are you joking? Bots have nothing to do with it. Twitter is not looking for a 'solution'. The goal is to shut out conservative thought.

    This is about bots. We don't require people to write content anymore and haven't for a while now.

    Not really. Media platforms have different rules than Mom and Pop's Burger Shop. This effectively shuts out conservative thought from this outlet. If Yahoo does the same thing, it will be 100% leftwing. All you have to do is look at Yahoo's news feed. 100% leftwing 100% of the time.

    Withholding information is the mark of the more powerful condemning the capacity of those they control.

    Willfully supporting this withholding is agreeing that you just don't have the capacity to think.

    The marketplace of ideas theory stands for the notion that, with minimal government interventionó

    a laissez faire approach to the regulation of speech and expressionó

    ideas, theories, propositions, and movements will succeed or fail on their own merits.

    Left to their own rational devices, free individuals have the discerning capacity to sift through competing proposals

    in an open environment of deliberation and exchange, allowing truth, or the best possible results, to be realized in the end.

    The ban isnít censorship. It eliminates all political ads from all parties/POVís equally.

    Twitter users are free to speak their minds and promote whatever views they like, within posting guidelines.

    Wrong. The ban does not stop conservative users from promoting their views. It simply eliminates paid political advertising. Two completely different things.

    No, social media is banning all political advertising. Do you understand the word, 'all'? Lying again (no surprise)?

    So don't look at it if it offends you. Go to Gateway Pundit, Breitbart or Sham Hannity instead for your conservative fix.
