Re: Applying pressure on Twitter

When you suggest that Twitter could easily move from the U.S., you are neglecting that the people that control Twitter are not the managers, they are the big shareholders.

The managers could easily move, and new employees hired (albeit not without significant disruption). But the financial structure behind Twitter still hopes to have big returns, or at least use the losses as a tax break. Leaving the U.S. would throw all of that value away.
