World leaders, even left-wing ACLU raise concern about Big Tech’s censorship purge

Article Link:

The left-wing American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has raised concerns about Twitter and Facebook’s power of censorship after the tech giants banned the President of the United States from their platforms recently. The Twitter blog announcing Trump’s ban stated: “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” The ACLU is not worried about Trump or even about ordinary conservative voices being silenced. In fact, their national board of directors is calling for the impeachment of President Trump. However, the organization is worried about what it describes as Twitter’s “unchecked power.”
