Twitter is Now Blocking Use of the Phrase "Illegal Alien"

The American Mirror reports:
The federal government, U.S. Supreme Court, and lawyers across the country use the word “illegal alien” to describe immigrants who illegally enter the country, because that’s the definition in the law.
But Twitter makes its own laws, and the social media giant is now blocking folks from promoting any messages with the phrase, which its moderators apparently consider “hate speech.”
Antitrust law needs to be applied to the social media monsters.  Antitrust was apparently worth using against Microsoft some years back, and they were not trying to suppress political speech.
