I’ve been following at least 2 different discussions on Twitter about conservatism and social values. More specifically, can someone be a conservative and be pr-choice? The back-and-forth has ben fascinating and I’ve been surprised by some notable conservatives responses.
I’ve seen many complaints in the last few weeks from conservative tweeters that to the it appears that Twitter is actively suppressing their and others viewpoints.
