Twitter shouldn't delete Trump's account, but it should absolutely block posts that are demonstrably false and harmful. To do otherwise is reckless.

Sewell ChanTHREAD: Local newspapers are dying. Often, they're the only institutions working to hold government, businesses and powerful individuals accountable. Today, @latimesopinion is urging policy makers to #SavetheNews.
