President Trump is going to tighten the binds of Twitter and other social Media

With many reasons to point global attention towards US, here Trump gives us more by tightening and declaring war on twitter and other major social media platforms. Due to recent incident occurred on 26th May 2020, twitter has first time ever has slapped on a fact check label on two of President Trumps tweets (two part tweet).

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…..

….living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!

President Trump has put an Execute Order in motion from 28th onwards to exert control over social media in many ways one of them is on the legal grounds of communications decency act 230 in US legislation 1996.  The co- author of this act Ron Wyden shows and explains this act is the legal infrastructure of the Social Media platforms and it shields the legal liability of the content user post online.  

His future explained online platforms are engaging in selective censorship that is harming our national discourse. Tens of thousands of Americans have reported, among other troubling behaviors, online platforms “flagging” content as inappropriate, even though it does not violate any stated terms of service; making unannounced and unexplained changes to company policies that have the effect of disfavoring certain viewpoints; and deleting content and entire accounts with no warning, no rationale, and no recourse.

With comparing to face book’s 2.6 users twitter 330 million followers they have no institutional will to engage on fact checkers. Besides to that twitter has made a different yet tight approach during the corona virus. In early march they have revised the policies and terms of service demanding they would remove any posts and even world leaders would post as “against guidance from authoritative sources of global and public health information.” Or leads and calming social distancing is ineffective and essentials oils can be used to cure the diseases. 

Without only limiting this to bunch of words twitter has recently removed tweets by Brazilian Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, arguing that the tweets about breaking social distancing orders and touting false cures.
