Twitter has started added a warning when Donald Trump comes on the social media platform that he loves when give outright false statements….
As is his operating style?
He issues a threat to get people or organisations to do what HE wants….
He thinks the media short changes the Conservative Right?
On my Cable TV….
There are MORE Right leaning channels , Like Fox and OAN than MSNBC….
Twitter added information to refute the inaccuracies in President Trump’s tweets for the first time on Tuesday, after years of pressure over its inaction on his false and threatening posts.
The social media company added links late Tuesday to two of Mr. Trump’s tweets in which he had posted about mail-in ballots and falsely claimed that they would cause the November presidential election to be “rigged.”
The links — which were in blue lettering at the bottom of the posts and punctuated by an exclamation mark — urged people to “get the facts” about voting by mail. Clicking on the links led to a CNN story that said Mr. Trump’s claims were unsubstantiated and to a list of bullet points that Twitter had compiled rebutting the inaccuracies.
Donald J. Trump
There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone…..
The warning labels were a minor addition to Mr. Trump’s tweets, but they represented a big shift in how Twitter deals with the president….
Here’s a piece on a Donald Trump , who is pissed he can’t lie on the regular and get called out.…
“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
“We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016. We can’t let a more sophisticated version of that happen again. Just like we can’t let large scale Mail-In Ballots take root in our Country,” he continued. “It would be a free for all on cheating, forgery and the theft of Ballots. Whoever cheated the most would win. Likewise, Social Media. Clean up your act, NOW!!!!”
In another tweet later Wednesday morning, Trump wrote that Twitter “has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct,” previewing: “Big action to follow!”
The president’s threat, which represented an escalation of his previous rhetoric targeting the tech giants for purported bias against conservative expression, came after Twitter flagged two of his posts on Tuesday with fact-check warnings. Those messages falsely asserted absentee ballots are likely to be “substantially fraudulent.”
Trump later in the day lashed out against the company for the first-of-its-kind intervention on his social media feed, declaring online that Twitter “is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election” and “completely stifling FREE SPEECH.”….
