Republican Representative Nancy Mace from South Carolina went on Fox News to discuss Twitter's hypocrisy in banning US President Donald Trump from their platform.

"Twitter can ban whomever they want, but that doesn’t mean they’re right to do it. The blatant hypocrisy of banning the US President, while taking no action against the CCP or the Ayatollah, is reflective of the kind of treatment Republicans have grown accustomed to by big tech," said Mace in a tweet, referring to the point she drove home in her interview on "Fox and Friends Weekend."

Mace, is not the only person calling out Twitter's double standard:

"Twitter accounts used by dictators who have crushed their people & restricted or banned social media:" says the tweet by Canadian international lawyer and human rights activist Hillel Neuer. He then went on to list the accounts of the current leader of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan, the Ayatollah of Iran, the Kremlin's Twitter account, various Chinese and Cuban official accounts, and the account of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro.

"We have an approach toward leaders that says that direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day, or foreign policy saber-rattling on military-economic issues are generally not in violation of our rules," commented a Twitter official, according to many sources available on the internet.

The selective enforcement raised serious questions regarding why Twitter felt the need to suspend Trump's account, but not the accounts of dictators and regimes that are responsible for the suffering of millions.
