Easy: they don't benefit at all from it. I'm not a lawyer, but I can easily see how it's not a good idea to talk bad about someone who used your platform.

There's nothing to gain, and a lot to lose by doing so. It's kinda lose-lose for Twitter, but few people seriously care about Milo getting banned.




Milo has explicitly stated he didn't incite harassment, so the benefit would be demonstrating that the ban was not politically-based.

> it's not a good idea to talk bad

talking bad vs providing evidence of intent to incite harassment.

> but few people seriously care about Milo getting banned

Hmm, perhaps in your own bubble


Why do you care so much what Twitter does?


Ad Hom. Do 'people' care, or don't they? That was your statement.


I'm not really debating you since there isn't much to debate. I'm just curious why you care so much about what a private company allows on their platform.


I'm not really engaging with your curiosity, either.


ok.
