After censoring a Trump Tweet about mail-in ballot fraud with a “Fact checker” mark, Trump is now seeking to end the tyranny that Social Media has placed on the conservative voice.
“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump tweeted earlier 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. We can’t let a more sophisticated version of that …. happen again.”
Exec Order for Social Media Regulation : Yoel Roth, head of site integrity
After the “Head of site Integrity” for Twitter, Yoel Roth, was found to be openly against President Trump. In one tweet, Roth called Mitch McConnell “a personality-free bag of farts.” In another, he wrote there were “actual Nazis in the White House.”
In response to the actions, Trump Tweeted a rather telling Tweet “Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!”
President Trump on Thursday is set to sign an executive order that would allow federal regulators to punish Facebook, Google and Twitter for the way they police content online.
Exec Order for Social Media Regulation : What the Fact Check Notation said
When a Twitter user clicks on the “fact-check” mark, you will see the following:
We’ve done several reports on states with the Motor Votor ID laws, and California is one of them. It’s no surprise that the way they worded it, is very misleading in itself. Truth is, illegals are given driver’s licenses and then they are AUTOMATICALLY permitted to vote in our elections. Not to mention the rosters are still full of inelligible voters who no longer live in the state.
This is a FACT that needed not be checked. Period.
Jack Dorsey tried some damage control after-the-fact, Tweeting a statement “Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that’s me. Please leave our employees out of this. We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.”
