So remember when we reported that Twitter has incorporated a new feature which will alert users when fake news is being peddled via their platform? Well it looks like they already began testing their new feature and one of the “test subject” is US President, Donald Trump!
Twitter said it would “only warn” the peddler of such information to “fact check” before spreading such news. And this they did to Donald Trump who then threatened to “shut social media down” because Twitter Inc was “stifling freedom of speech”.
Trump’s threat comes a day after Twitter Inc. for the first time added a warning to some of his tweets that prompted readers to fact check the president’s tweet that claimed mail-in ballots could allow widespread voter fraud.
So here’s Donald Trump’ s reply
“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!!!!”
