Donald Trump Vs Twitter: What’s The Issue
Social media company Twitter censored some of the tweets sent out by the official Twitter account of Donald Trump. Initially, fact-check notices were placed on some of his tweets.
However, after the painful death of George Floyd last week Donald Trump sent out a tweet stating that he spoke to the Governor, Tim Walz, and told him that the military is with him all the way. He further stated that, when looting starts, the shooting starts. The aforementioned tweet was hidden by Twitter as according to the social media company it promoted violence.
According to The Independent, Donald Trump signed a controversial executive order that could allow federal officials to go after technology giants like Twitter, Facebook, and Google over how those firms monitor and treat content that appears on their websites.
The step taken by President Donald Trump faced its first legal challenge on Tuesday, claiming that Trump violated the companies’ rights to free speech.
Does Facebook Support Donald Trump?
Unlike Jack, it seems that Mark Zuckerberg has been defending Donald Trump and his posts. Due to the actions of Mark Zuckerberg, several Facebook employees have left the company stating that the company would end up “on the wrong side of history.”
Zuckerberg and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg on Monday night had a Zoom call with the leaders of three civil rights groups — Vanita Gupta of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Rashad Robinson from Color of Change and Sherrilyn Ifill from the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. They tried to explain the company’s decision to the trio, but were unsuccessful in doing so.
“We are disappointed and stunned by Mark’s incomprehensible explanations for allowing the Trump posts to remain up. He did not demonstrate an understanding of historic or modern-day voter suppression and he refuses to acknowledge how Facebook is facilitating Trump’s call for violence against protesters,” the trio said in a statement.
“Mark is setting a very dangerous precedent for other voices who would say similar harmful things on Facebook,” they added.
