Censorship of any views to the right of Karl Marx on all the big social media platforms is very well documented. Finally we are seeing the President star to talk about it.
Twitter “SHADOW BANNING” prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints.

Shadow banning is just one of many tactics that Twitter uses to censor and stifle views that they don’t like. They’ve already banned an endless number of personalities associated with the Alt-Right, nationalism etc.. Now they’re shifting their focus on mainstream Republicans.
I was personally banned after three weeks because some assholes did not like what I said about the Jewish Holocaust being a dumb hoax.
We need entities like Twitter and Facebook to at the very least be regulated if not nationalized entirely. It’s ridiculous that these monopolistic private companies have so much control over the public discourse. This obviously needs to change and the fact that it’s on the President’s radar is definitely a good sign.
