WASHINGTON (AP) – Social media companies decided this past week they had finally seen enough from President Donald Trump.
Facebook and Instagram suspended Trump at least until Inauguration Day.
Twitch and Snapchat also disabled Trump’s accounts.
To top it all off, Twitter ended a nearly 12-year run and shuttered his account, severing an instant line of communication to his 89 million followers.
Conservatives are crying foul.
Many are asking whether Twitter and Facebook can legally take such action.
The short answer is yes.
