Very slippery slope!

Twitter also wouldn’t say why it hasn’t taken similar action against the terror group Hamas and its supporters for tweeting “Death to the Jews” and other threats of violence.

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Twitter, like this forum, probably has rules that must be followed. I personally don't know as I've never wasted a second of my remaining lifespan on Twitter or Facebook. If you want to play the first Amendment game, buy a newspaper company and go for it. If you don't want to play by Twitter rules (or anyone else's you choose to play with), play elsewhere.

The 1st Amendment isn't about the private-sector. It only deals with the public-sector.
Not sure why this account got cancelled. Twitter has plenty of people espousing anti-Obama rhetoric. Must be more to the story.
Slippery slope? Sounds more like peeing on the living room rug. Most likely a rules/decorum type violation of the forum/service rules.
Don't like it, don't use their service. Isn't that what capitalism is supposed to be about anyway? And if there's one thing this country loves more than Jesus it's capitalism. The market can determine if that behavior is appropriate or not (on the part of twitter, not the user).
