Twitter Suspends Oregon Hero's Account

Twitter today suspended the account of Ammon Bundy, a member of the militia which liberated a portion of Oregon from Federal Forces. No explanation is available from Twitter as to why they are denying Bundy use of their platform (archived). Twitter has made it clear in the past that it would rather please the arthritic establishment than offer the future any quarter on its closed platform. Now matter how much various Silicon Valley properties say they value freedom of speech on their platforms, they continue to exclude actual dissidents with speech worth protecting.
