I do not like censorship however, will this mean that any terrorist activities be shut down? Will those Tweets or FB pages be turned over to the FBI? We know in the past that those types of sites are shut down after the fact. WE know that social media has not always worked with our government regarding these issues. We know that the FBI has to hack into cellphone service for their investigation of a terrorist because of "privacy issues." Radio and Television stations and cable companies come under FCC rulings. They have become pretty liberal in the last 30 years but they still have rules. So, Zuckerbergs attempt at censorship to me doesn't hold water.

Twitter and Face Book are private companies. We sign an agreement when we decide to use these for communication. They reserve the right to remove any post/comment if they decide it is offense. They are acting upon the agreement that all users signed to use their media to send messages to friends or general public. All privately owned businesses enjoy the rights to set rules regarding the use of their services. As Conservatives who have advocated for these rights, i.e.; the Little Sisters of the Poor or bakers and florists who exerted their constitutional rights we stood with them. We didn't ask them for their voter registration - we defended their rights based on the constitution.

Offensive material should not include political opinion. Barring diverse opinion usurps the commentators right to free speech. Of course society can vote with their pocketbook.

I usually don’t like & don’t agree with what they say, however, freedom of speech is a right for them too.

They should censor violent content, but not ideas, be they conservative or liberal.

The First Amendment should rule!

As much as I would love for the Feds to pass laws limiting social media companies to affect the messages sent by the President, our Constitution gives them that right. Plus I do not like to keep adding legislation upon legislation.

With the terrorists rioting in our streets, using social media to whip up their mob, it is clear that social media needs to be reined in and reasonable control needs to be taken to assure we all have freedom to make up our own minds - not the media giants.

They need to operate under the same laws that the rest of us do. It is not just to restrict opinions with which you disagree while advocating your different opinions. The freedom to express oneself granted in the United States Constitution is curtailed by the social media giants censorship and should stop immediately. it is destroying our nation.

Social media has two sides of it, both good and bad, so it's important to be selective about what's right to read and not be blind.

I think social media is a free space where people can express themselves, but I think insulting and degrading behavior should be interfered with.
