The only people allowed to block others are american tech elites. When others do it its against human rights. These ppl are the biggest hypocrites.
Reminder: Private companies do not owe you a platform.
Governments on the other hand have no right to interfere with their citizen's right to free speech.

But when different companies combine to censor people who have different opinions from the tech oligarchy it becomes a monopoly which is dangerous to society. Here most govts would intervene.

I don't get your argument. Are you saying that there are instances where private companies are obligated to give you a platform? If yes, which instances are these?

Just because a company offers your a platform doesn't mean they can do anything they want.

You are evading my question. The article you posted does not even mention censorship. Neither does it say that companies are obligated to offer anyone a platform.

That article is about antitrust which involves price manipulation. So which prices have twitter manipulated?

Antitrust encompasses a wide variety of things not just price manipulations.

So if twitter decides to sell its user's data will that be accepted by its users who use its platform?
