Twitter isn’t gov. Owned. They 100 percent have the right to make their own rules, censor and ban anyone they like. Sorry. Its not Twitter.Gov

Exactly. Publicly owned simply means they sold public securities to outsiders. It doesn’t mean they are held to a different standard whether it be discrimination, censorship, or other constitutionally protected rights.
”publicly traded” is no different in this case than ”privately owned”. They are not a government entity, they are a private enterprise that has simply sold public securities. There is no legal difference in the standards that would apply regardless if twitter was still “private” versus the fact that they have sold public securities and have external shareholders versus solely shareholders made up of founders, management and/or “private” investors.
