It was no secret that Twitter was 100 percent on board with #NetNeutrality, but now that the internet as we knew it is dead thanks to a vote to “gut” net neutrality, Twitter Public Policy is using its power of free expression to call it a body blow to free expression.
The @FCC's vote to gut #NetNeutrality rules is a body blow to innovation and free expression. We will continue our fight to defend the open Internet and reverse this misguided decision. https://t.co/TXTQWDiBNC

Twitter Public Policy can continue to fight the misguided decision to repeal net neutrality provisions, but first, could we all just get an edit button?
why don't you sit this one out, Unexplained User Disappearerhttps://t.co/bK9uie5jZr

Or…or you could just be innovative and actually support free expression. ☕ https://t.co/JfTviAIaJe

Never in the history of civilization has removing government regulation led to decreased innovation and reduced free expression.

Believe us: there’s plenty of free expression on Twitter — a lot of it bullying by the Twitter-verified blue-check brigade. Twitter certainly hasn’t figured out how to get that under control.

Except for conservatives. You silence conservatives. Free expression? Twitter you're a joke! You suspend conservative accounts all day everyday. Good riddance to #NetNeutrality https://t.co/KubG7hHQr0

Here's @Policy from @Twitter pretending to care deeply about defending"Free Speech" after years of bannings & promising a great purge of Conservatives in a few days.
Peak #netneutrality hypocrisy. https://t.co/yHrYINjYMR

It’s true that online companies from Etsy to Pornhub did what they could to protest the repeal of net neutrality — what will happen to them now?

Government control is the way to keep things free & open? .. uh.. lol.. So, if I am reading this correctly, the path to freedom is giving control of the internet to an admin that is full of "bigots, racists, fascists" … HA HA H AH A https://t.co/VUsStXgvp8

Told you. Was net neutrality the reason Twitter couldn’t implement an edit button since 2015?
Man, you guys will do anything to avoid putting in an edit button. https://t.co/5ROumTaQbu

Twitter users using their free expression to troll Twitter Public Policy for being a drama queen — that’s peak 2017.
