Here’s to another #TrumpMeltdown after twitter acted against his false tweets
Another commotion happened earlier this week when Donald Trump allegedly accused them of stifling conservative voices. This was after twitter took action on his recent tweets and tagged with a fact-check warning.
Trump has tweeted that more mail-in voting would lead to what he called as a “Rigged Election” this coming November. Twitter’s tagged action causes Trump’s tirade and claims that social media is censoring a political right in the United States. He then exclaimed that he would sign an executive order about social media.
“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen. We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016.” as Trump tweeted.
It recently came under the attention of the people for it to take action against the US President after he spent weeks propagating a baseless conspiracy theory that the MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough was involved in the death of his staff, Lori Klausutis. Scarborough, at the same time, he was still a US congressman.
Twitter had been long criticized for not taking action against Trump’s false allegations and conspiracies towards opponents despite its policies against the dissemination of misinformation. But just this Tuesday, twitter surprised users for taking action for the misbehavior of the said President.
The President wrote two tweets claiming “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.”
Twitter tagged each of the messages with a blue exclamation mark and warning message, linking it to articles from The Washington Post, CNN, and other outlets that debunk the President’s assertion.
Trump has long accused social-media companies of bias against conservatives. Last June 2019 he invited several people who had hate speech removed by these social media platforms to the White House for a social-media summit. Trump also credited Twitter by being able to freely communicate that became a crucial factor in his election to the White House.
He also expected to sign an Executive Order after threatening to shutter social media platforms after Twitter’s move against his actions.
