Twitter and Facebook are not "state actors" either...DTT is not a state actor. State actors taking on a role that usually belongs to the governent being held to the same standard as the government is nothing new.
Using your own words, how do Twitter and/or Facebook "take on a role that usually belongs to the government"???

State actor - Wikipedia
In United States law, a state actor is a person who is acting on behalf of a governmental body, and is therefore subject to regulation under the United States Bill of Rights, including the First, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which prohibit the federal and state governments from violating certain rights and freedoms.
The court case you referenced involved public access televisions systems, which is easily recognizable as a "state actor".
Public-access television - Wikipedia
Public-access television was created in the United States between 1969 and 1971 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), under Chairman Dean Burch, based on pioneering work and advocacy of George Stoney, Red Burns (Alternate Media Center), and Sidney Dean (City Club of NY).
