But how effective is that outlet if individual citizens– even purported journalists (not including you)– can just "hide" or "snooze" comments on the platform?

While taking down the President is one thing- on the opposite side, individuals on the platform are creating a sanitary environment, not allowing for true in-depth discussion, and preventing any comments that don't agree with their own.

Is this really the "public square" that you envisioned? Is it right for a journalist (again, not meaning you) to hide or delete comments that don't agree with their thesis?

Is the takedown of the President just another symptom of Toxic Positiviity on the platform?
