Twitter shares drop 7% in fallout over Trump censorship

Shares of Twitter slumped seven per cent on Monday, on course to knock off about $2.5 billion from the market value of the social media company after it permanently shutdown the account of U.S. President Donald Trump.
 
The slide came as some Republicans hit out over the weekend at the platform for gagging one of its most watched participants, with traders also pointing to signs that the affair was further fuelling calls for greater regulation of Big Tech.
