You are right to be sceptical, I should add, though. We need to bear in mind the fine line between acceptable standards for social media and outright closure. I think we need to treat social media outlets more like news organisations in this matter, since they are essentially news disseminators now.
However, I wouldn’t want it where even cranks can’t set up web pages or publish work on their own accord. I am just uncertain over the health of allowing social media to spread nonsense. Not just on this, but all sorts of conspiracies too. I fear that the propagation of such is harming civil life, as can be seen as many seem to believe that the US election was illegitimate based on conspiracies from cranks.
It’s true that there are other means, but this is one way of mitigation, maybe.
