Its a bizarre day when you see the headlines read something along the lines of “Trump Threatens To Close Social Media Who Silence Conservative Voices” all because Twitter posted a fact check on two of his precious tweets. What mystifies me is why they haven’t done it before? Frankly the narrative that comes from his Twitter is a disgusting tirade at best so to think that its taken this long and so far they have only labelled two of them misleading leads me to believe they have only just started paying proper attention.
His desire to stop social media platforms from stifling conservative voices pretty much violates the very amendment he is trying to invoke. I find it hilarious that he can be so self absorbed at times, but his ability to marginalise people just by what he stands for is disgusting. In a world which he might not think its fair its actually perfectly fair, we have no idea if any of what he says is true unless it somehow crashes into being. So good on Twitter for taking a stand and may many more be questioned in a bid to find out the truth.
Its fair to say I don’t think he has the slightest idea of the implications of his behaviour, he is now in charge of one of the largest countries in the world and has a duty of care to over 320 million people. Whether they voted for him or not they are stuck with him until someone else gets elected, his version of politics involves slinging insults at the world through a variety of mediums including social media for crying out loud. The current POTUS should not be threatening to sanction social media companies for questioning his spurious narrative. What else might he have lied about?
