Wrong pronoun

“Blogger Sues Twitter Over Hate-Policy Ban,” The Wall Street Journal, February 13, 2019 B6.  Blogger claims Twitter banned her because she criticized transgender rights and used the “original birth sex” pronoun to refer to a transgender person.

Does this violate Canada’s unfair competition law?  Are there limits on what a semi-public platform can ban?  Does the government Govern this, or does Twitter?

Is your birth sex Information, as much as your chosen sex designation?  Who governs the rules of English grammar?  Does banning someone from Twitter give rise to a cause of action?
