    I think Vader has been the only one to use TK over a TV monitor.
    There is some old sci fi novel where someone pulls that trick, but I don't remember the name of it.

    It was also done in the Resident Evil movies. Wanna say Resident Evil 2.

    Wanda wins since she caught an explosion after it began, meaning her tk operates on subsonic speeds

    So it's basically the woman who had Thanos begging for mercy versus one of Thanos's intimidated minions. I think you answered your own question.

    Here's the way I see it. Wanda's upper limit seems far beyond Maw's, just look at how she lifted and threw Thanos' giant killer hamster wheels. Maw however has much better fine control, turning dozens of bricks into spikes. However the real difference comes in specific applications. Wanda can block and attack with her TK directly, Maw can't, he has to manipulate an object, like when he tried to shield himself with a car but one of his own brick spikes got through anyway, but Wanda makes actual barriers. As for a TK neck snap or something similar, defending against that is simple, Wands or Maw uses their own TK to hold their neck in place directly, you don't block the attack, you oppose it with equal force. But as Wanda has shown to be capable of greater force than Maw, she can overpower his defensive TK and crush him regardless.

    As for Maw controlling organic matter, he gagged Thor rather than pinch his mouth shut. He used a platform to move Strange rather than lift him directly. And as for Cull, that doesn't necessarily kill the idea, Maw could have simply affected his clothing, not his body.
    "Money and muscle, thatís what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money wonít do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the money in the world wonít enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has money he may not be able to get away with it."

    With nothing to go off of (narration or greater context as to the nature of his powers), I'm happy calling him being unable to affect organic matter as simple PIS. Artistic Licence on the character. Matter is matter.

    Lots of PIS actually. Him needing the car as a shield for example. All those spikes were inorganic matter. He could have just grabbed or blocked them with TK equal to the force he tossed them with.
    "So full of hate were our eyes
    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    Eh, I could see the argument for it either way. But Wanda can still neck-twist harder than Maw can neck-not-twist.
