This morning, Trump took it one step further, directly stating that he would close down social media companies that use their First Amendment rights in a way he doesn’t like.

“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

“The law still protects social media companies like @Twitter because they are considered forums not publishers,” tweeted Rubio.

• Even if Section 230 didn’t exist, private social media companies (no matter what you call them!)

In short: It’s illegal for Rubio, Trump, or anyone else in power to censor Twitter and it’s perfectly legal for Twitter to censor Trump, Rubio, or any other government official.
