Trump threatens to shutter social media companies after Twitter warningU.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to regulate or shut down social media companies, one day after Twitter Inc for the first time added a warning to some of his tweets prompting readers to fact check the president's claims. Короновирусная шизофрения обуяла планету. Все вокруг я That's the first bit of real good news this year if it takes him off of social media completely. By his definition, correcting his followers' misspelling of 'they're' is 'silencing conservative voices.' It's an asterisk to a link correcting the error, not censorship, ya big dummy.

Twitter adds 'glorifying violence' warning to Trump tweetTwitter has added a warning to one of President Donald J. Trump’s tweets about protests in Minneapolis. The company says the tweet violated the platform’s rules about 'glorifying violence.' I hope this isn’t something they limit to just Trump. This won’t end well. He’s clearly talking about the looter that was shot and killed by a pawn shop owner 🙄 Per Twitter policy, Trump should already be permanently banned.

Twitter Places Fact-Checking Warning On Trump Tweet For 1st TimeA link is added to a tweet in which the president claims without evidence that mail-in ballots are fraudulent. A Twitter spokesman says the tweet wasn't deleted because it didn't discourage voting. Should just save the time and leave it in as a permanent footer for all his tweets. He's a liar. He lies on Twitter everyday. There needs to be much more of this. Finally! Glad to see Twitter doing the right thing.

He's long accused social media of censoring conservative views, but it's unclear what he could do to crack down on social platforms. Well good luck with that. How many of these 'fact checks' have you seen done TheDemocrats. Why does all this censorship only ever fall one way? Just like when the media makes a 'mistake', it only ever hurts Republicans.
