Nigel Farage: If Twitter wants to target conservative speech then treat it like the biased publisher it is | Fox News

The big tech giants are moving fast against the political right, the libertarian radicals, and those walking away from the Democrat Party in the United States. The same applies in my country, the United Kingdom, too.

Over the weekend we saw Candace Owens, a strong, young, black woman suspended from Twitter for daring to point out the allegedly algorithmic hypocrisy of Twitter by replacing the word “white” with “Jewish” in a series of tweets modeled on those by New York Times editor Sarah Jeong.

While the social media giant quickly backtracked, the same cannot be said for its treatment of right-wingers or globalist opponents in other regards.

They're just warming up for the China market.

There is a legal basis in the "common carriage" doctrine to prevent Twittergoogleface from discriminating against certain - or any - views. There would be no expropriation of private property in applying the doctrine to such internet giants.
