According to one of the comments regarding of the incident, one tweet say, “Twitter is the best example of the suppression of free speech that we see on a daily basis. I am not suggesting that twitter is in any way subject to the first amendment, it is not, being a private company it has free reign over its content.
But the bigger problem is that its users are largely ok, with twitters censorship and suppression of free speech. twitter have been blocking/ deleting post and locking account of people who express the conservative view point for some time now. Twitter has become a platform for the extreme left and it removing any competing content.”

“No, Twitter isn’t deleting Tweets. It’s user unfamiliarity with the Timeline change: Tweets and Tweets & Replies”
