Trump threatens to shutter social media companies after Twitter warning

Or stay with Twitter and have them discontinue adding politically biased fact-checks that are lies. That's the easiest way forward.

And now we are at the heart of it....Trump needs Twitter more than Twitter needs Donald Trump. As I said before, if the fact checks are lies, surely people can think for themselves and ferret out fake news where it lives and breathes...that must really sting...letting people think for themselves and not depend on Donald Trump to think for you.

Perhaps the scariest thing about trump is that he may actually beleive his own narrative.

Not. He doesn't believe a word of it. Just mindless rhetoric to feed his base, who he personally despises.

45 probably doesn't even know the internet is international in scope, and there is absolutely nothing he could do to block Twitter. If he somehow sicked his private lawyer on Twitter (the guy formerly known as the Attorney General), Twitter could move to Canada or another country where private enterprise is championed and where the leadership not only is above the age of consent, but also acts like an adult. If 45 still tried to block it, Americans could easily access it on TOR or another tunneling proxy.

 

Freedom wins, 45 loses. A taste of this November.

sure, he can try to shut them down or block them.  not possible.

 

tens of millions of chinese on twatter and farcebook prove otherwise.

Why does "the goose"  not shut them all down. It would go down as one of the only good things he achieved. 

Make the world a better place

The fact that there isn't widespread and endemic voter fraud in the US. How else would Trump have got elected? I refuse to believe that 50% of the American voting public would be so incredibly stupid as to vote for a snake oil salesman.

As has been explained to people ad nauseum since trump was elected, he did not gain 50 percent of the vote, nor did he even acheive a majority because the us electoral college system is setup to make a majority common vote unnessescary.

 

Trump won with 304 of a possible 538 votes from the electorate.

 

Given the skew of votes per territory he won the electorate majority.

 

By actual numbers the story iwas somewhat different. Donald trump won less votes, but more of the right votes.

 

Hillary clinton won 65,853,625 votes (48.0%)
donald trump won 62,985,106 votes (45.9%).

Lets just examine that...why is fact checking so scary for the Trump supporters. If the fact checks are lies, they will be exposed...if the facts checks are true then Trump will be exposed...I mean we are just trying to shed light on the truth, right? At the end of the day the truth is what is important, correct? So what is wrong with fact checking...and if Trump does not like being fact checked, why shouldn't he delete his account and move on to more "accurate" platforms to distribute his message instead of trying to censor free speech? Freedom of speech surely allows for fact checking....right? 

No, wrong. The problem is that fact checking is not fact checking at all. It's a political activist with an agenda pretending to be a fact checker. I indicated who was responsible for the fact checking in a post above.

Who are the factcheckers ,that twitter uses and what bias ,if any ,have they shown ,recently! Many reports in the past mention these tech giants in California's corporate locations have very liberal leanings.

 

Do they outsource their factchecking or is it in house

Why are you asking posters on TVF?

 

If you really want to know, then talk to the people who run Twitter, ask all your questions to them and the report back on this thread.
