for seizing upon the term "snowflake" so much, outwardly right-wing politicians seem to behave like big stroppy babies quite often

I've filed an IMMEDIATE TORT ACTION against AOC for refusing to be my girlfriend and tuck me into bed at night

I think this could be a good thing by driving politicians and public officials off social media. Get some heat out of the system.

Has there ever been a more flippantly litigious society in history?

It's not flippant for the Courts.  It's about holding government, politicians etc accountable in 'government speech'.
Since Trump and most politicians have blurred the lines between personal and professional on the one account the remedy is to have one personal and one professional account. This would also solve the, 'Why isn't Trump banned from Twitter for violating Twitter's policies?' outcry thing as well.

And where better to start than with figures who represent the only political movement that is even vaguely for the people?

Didn't this start with the law being applied to trump? This is a somewhat petty, yet predictable retaliation of that precedent isn't it?

Yeah it's right ring snowflakes being triggered

Twitter have already said they can't ban Trump because he's a world leader, so Twitter rules don't seem to exist for everyone!

It sort of suggests they are shitting themselves though, which is good
