The issue I have with that thought is if you do remove such protections and it doesn't stop their behavior, then what?

That's why I agree with Judge Clarence's interpretation of these social media companies as common carriers. It's a last resort but a lot of companies including Google, et al. have become too big to fail. I can't think of an easy way to do this because we are treading a dangerous tight rope.

I don't like giving government the club, but none of us have the power as individuals to stop something like Twitter, Facebook, Google. They're an embedded part of our cultural lexicon we can't remove.

Libertarians like you have no answer to what to do about monopolies or cartels. (Which are not free markets.) Just outcompete guys. The invisible hand will guide you.
