Debate thread: 2d33 - Should Twitter ban Trump?
Please feel free to add your opinion and arguments here, we'd love to hear from you!
Twitter is Trump's channel of choice when it comes to direct communication with his voters. Arguable his tweets often are controversial and many of them are in violence to Twitter's own terms of service. So the question therefor is: Should twitter act and ban Trump from using its service or is it in fact right by keeping his account online?

Debate thread: When Great Britain voted for leaving the EU, all other member states stared at the vote in disbelief. Can they do that? It turns out that the EU has been designed in a way that allows for a divorce. The question then is - should the EU try to make an example of UK in order to avoid other states following the example or is it in our interest to ensure an as friendly exit as possible?
