       In recent news we've seen history through a lens that we have never seen before. For the first time in centuries we experienced a deliberate attack on our democracy. This attack took place at our nations capital in Washington D.C , where many of our respected members of congress work. Not only were the lives of public officials endangered ; the state and integrity of our nation was compromised. Internationally the world saw one of the strongest democracies crumble. This deconstruction is the direct result of social media and the lack of deescalation strategy used to prevent civil unrest. The platform formally known as "Twitter" continuously served as a ground of instigation, where bias, divisive and destructive narratives took place.

Freedom of speech is a first amendment right. However, aiding and abetting biased, untrue & divisive jargon is a tremendous offense against American democracy. Instead of taking away his platform. "Twitter" intentionally created clauses and policies to relive themselves of accountability. "Fact Check" disclaimers are not the same as censoring misleading information. Our president managed to accrue a total of 88.7 Million followers while simultaneously disrupting the peace of our nation.

America is not perfect, far from it. But I do believe as a proud citizen of the USA, there is no room for hatred, ablism & lies. "Twitter" served as a host for a one of the most dangerous people of modern society. And therefore should be held the highest extent of accountability.

America belongs to all of us!!
