There was a debate that occurred here on that very issue just recently. This is not a perfect world. No one is perfect, even in terms of how they enforce their own ToS.
Perfect? Not only does Twitter not make an attempt to be perfect, they are deliberately biased against conservatives.

That's debatable. Plenty of conservatives on Twitter right now. Clearly, they aren't being censored for their conservatism. So right-wingers who've been banned from Twitter were banned for other reasons.
So why is the left so afraid of Musk?

I don't think the Twitter execs would sell for all the money in the world. Censoring conservative thought is the god they worship. They are not going to abandon their religion for mere money.
Trump & MTG hardly qualify as "conservative thought", or any thought really...

What evidence do you have that Musk will turn Twitter into 4Chan?
“Twitter works because it has limits, terms of service, rules. A ‘free speech’ board where anything goes will immediately be infested by spam, scams, racism, Nazis, trolls with nothing else to do, and hate speech,” conspiracy theory and QAnon expert Mike Rothschild tweeted.

Analysts warn that making Twitter a free speech free-for-all could harm its business. They say if there was no buffering of hateful, offensive or extremist posts, individual users would be less likely to use Twitter.

Advertisers and publishers, concerned about their messages being paired with problematic posts, also want content standards even if that means the platform has fewer users and is less popular, said GroupM analyst Brian Wieser.

“We think that free speech absolutism on Twitter and Musk’s preferences would likely lead to a worse business, and worse platform for advertising for large brands even if Musk were otherwise able to find ways to grow usage or users on the platform,” Wieser wrote in a blog post.
