From the Washington Post:

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai fiercely defended his plan to repeal net neutrality rules and accused Twitter of discriminating against conservatives. Eli Rosenberg reports: “Speaking during an event hosted by the R Street Institute, a conservative think tank, Pai accused Twitter of hypocrisy for its criticism of the FCC’s plan to repeal the Obama-era regulation. ‘When it comes to a free and open Internet, Twitter is part of the problem,’ Pai said. ‘The company has a viewpoint and uses that viewpoint to discriminate.’ … He cited the company’s recent regulation of ‘conservative users’ accounts,’ apparently referring to Twitter’s recent decision to suspend and de-verify some prominent white nationalists and far-right users on its service.”
