Ex-Facebook security chief Alex Stamos joined CNBC's 'The Exchange' to discuss how Twitter and Facebook are handling controversial posts from President Donald Trump.

Stanford Internet Observatory"You see Trump being criticized for clearing people out from Lafayette Park, which I think is a totally appropriate criticism, but then the TV channels play that clip over and over again of the photo-op that he wanted to get," Stamos said. "I think a lot of people are struggling with how do you allow speech and how do you report on things that are newsworthy without amplifying it. I think Twitter's approach here is actually pretty appropriate.

Shares of Twitter rose about 1% on Tuesday, but are down more than 5% since May 26 amid concern about regulation. Facebook's stock is down less than 5% over that same time period.

All people asking. Put a disclaimer he is most probably saying

It literally isn’t since social media companies are private and kick the everyday person off for absolutely nothing. I don’t remember presidents having exclusivity to private platforms - esp when they haven’t existed until recently

what ever happen to anything is possible when you put your mind to it and nothing can stop American ingenuity , we can accomplish anything

Nobody is asking for that.
