Both companies' leadership are really frightened of the right wing. Anyone important enough to them is "culturally significant" enough to effectively be exempted from policy. It's dressed up as a "public interest" exception, but it doesn't apply to everyone.
It also doesn't come with any kind of visible marker on content saying "This would normally violate policy, but is being permitted because we believe it's important people know what X is saying," because that would also offend them.
There's a lot of talk from @Facebook and @Twitter leadership in particular (Although @Google as well, especially in *internal* comms policies) about having to be ideologically neutral, but in practice they view silencing the far right as far more dangerous than others.
