@Twitter is worried about being blocked in Nigeria, while banning @donaldjtrump, and keeping terrorists. You should change the platform to HypoTwit for trying to control speech and misrepresenting the 1st Amendment. #Hypocrites #unAmerican

Twitter GUILTY of Human Rights Violations
Jun 6, 2021
Acts17Apologetics
In a recent tweet about Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari’s national ban on Twitter, Twitter declared that access to its platform is an “essential human right.” Yet Twitter blocks people from its platform regularly. Hence, Twitter is guilty of countless human rights abuses.
