It is a company. And companies, in the United States, are allowed to do exactly that.

If you want free speech then go stand on a public (government owned) sidewalk and wave your sign. That is what the constitution specifically allows.

But for many other people twitter had nothing to do with what you said. It was for entertainment (news about music, movies, etc), fashion, business, etc. They didn't go there for politics.

But since the owner of the company changed then now that new owner can run it the way he wants.
