The main reason we’re doing a post on this is that the original poster (he/him) is a media studies professor, although he doesn’t say where. (A quick Google search shows he teaches at the University of Virginia, for those with kids evaluating college choices). It was in the summer of 2021, just months after the Capitol riot, that the powers that be determined that the “insurrection” had been planned largely on the Twitter alternative Parler. Actually, the bulk of the planning was done on Facebook, but Parler already had the “conservative” label, so both Google and Apple removed Parler from their app stores (just as it was the No. 1 most-downloaded app). Apple had generously given Parler 24 hours to get its content moderation up to snuff or be removed.

Professor Siva Vaidhyanathan reminds us that Apple has the power to “crush” Elon Musk’s Twitter by removing it from the App Store over terms of service violations.

A “media studies professor” is already daydreaming about “crushing” Elon Musk for not censoring conservative viewpoints. These are the people teaching our kids.
