Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) expressed some rare agreement with a prominent rival across the aisle, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), on Twitter after Warren lamented big tech companies have “too much power” to decide what and what not to censor on social media platforms.
“Curious why I think FB has too much power? Let’s start with their ability to shut down a debate over whether FB had too much power,” said Warren after Facebook deleted her ads criticizing the social media platform for censorship.
Curious why I think FB has too much power? Let’s start with their ability to shut down a debate over whether FB has too much power. Thanks for restoring my posts. But I want a social media marketplace that isn’t dominated by a single censor. #BreakUpBigTech https://t.co/UPS6dozOxn

First time I’ve ever retweeted @ewarren But she’s right—Big Tech has way too much power to silence Free Speech. They shouldn’t be censoring Warren, or anybody else. A serious threat to our democracy. https://t.co/VoesOKSqhA
