In my heart-No.

I feel there are legitimate arguments for both sides and everything in between. Some way other then censorship as we commonly think of it needs to be worked out.

 I haven't a suggestion for that, however.

 Prolly a bunch of fits and starts until the world gets a reasonably acceptable solution.

It's the highest form of humor

Nina Jankowicz says verified Twitter users should 'edit' tweets (

 Thanks for the responses.

 For those who don't support social media companies censoring content, what do you think about social media company Twitch removing the Buffalo racist mass murderer's helmet camera live footage of him killing those people? Was Twitch wrong to remove it?
