King Donald J. Trump, the Oba N’Obi II of Emirate Social Empire, hereby desires to revoke Twitter’s domain.
Please read the piece from Samuel’s article. I just want to give King Trump his honour on this entry.
Just when it is thought the relationship between conservatives and social media platforms could get better, it went presidentially sour. On Wednesday, the US President Donald Trump threatened to ‘strongly regulate’ or shut down social media platforms for perceived attempts to muzzle conservatives.
“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,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday.
This was coming after Twitter applied a fact-check to two of his previous tweets that called mail-in voting fraud. It is the first time the social media platform is putting a fact-check on Trump’s tweet, even though his tweets are believed to be full of controversies and unsubstantiated claims. The action appears to have triggered a threat response from Trump, escalating what members of the Republican Party believe to be an unfair treatment deliberately targeted at conservatives.
