actually, twitter does not have a problem with political views, but it
(supposedly) DOES have a problem with "fake news". that said, my complaints
about the current resident of the white house making false and misleading
statements on twitter have been received by twitter, but are being ignored.
i guess rules are only meant for us little people.
