In recent tweets, President Trump has been highly critical of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. Preet Bharara, a former U.S. Attorney who was fired by the Trump administration who has since become a favorite of the anti-Trump Resistance, responded to the president’s criticism this way:
What if Jeff Bezos bought Twitter with the change in his pocket and shut Trump's account?

The blue check Resistance loved the idea:

Progressive Muckrakers at turn of last century: trust-bust and expose the monopolies! Progressives now: expand the power of the trusts so they silence dissidents! https://t.co/hdGSselsyM

Bharara’s game could backfire, however:
Not a new idea. Also, it's just as easy to imagine the Koch Brothers buying Twitter and shutting down your account. This is a weakness that we all have with Twitter being so vulnerable yet so indispensable.
