President Donald Trump has threatened to shut down Twitter among other social media companies in the US.
The threats by the President follows the raising temperatures in the country with discussion being directed on social media.
Twitter found itself in the heat when they added a fact check in the platform which described mail ballots about the President facts.
- Donald Trump confident coronavirus originated from China
- Trump to sign an order suspending immigration into the US
- Iraq parliament to expel U.S troops, Trump threatens
The in fights ahead of the upcoming elections led to the President to openly state his dissatisfaction on the social media saying he will not stand to be silenced.
He went ahead to point out how social media attempted to spoil things for him back in 2016 but fortunately they failed.
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. 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. 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!!!!”
All eyes are on Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey who has been under pressure to act on some of President Donald Trump’s tweets.
Even though he added the new feature, the rivalry has just began between Jack Dorsey and the President himself.
According to Trump, the allegations he has been saying about the social media giants has been true following the introduction of the new feature.
“Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!”
