a coupla versions:

Twitter Refutes Inaccuracies in Trump’s Tweets for First Time

Twitter Slaps Fact-Check Link On Donald Trump Tweet For The First Time; He Claims Platform Is “Stifling Free Speech”

this is way overdue, although i'd like to see twitter refer to a source more authoritative than cnn, if possible - a source that's unimpeachable. that may be asking more than is possible, but if you're gonna address this most serious issue, come ready with a most serious solution.

Quote:
He tweeted, .”@Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election. They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post. Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”

Trump to sign executive order on social media on Thursday
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-twitter-trump-idUSKBN2331NK

Quote:
It was unclear how Trump could follow through on the threat of shutting down social media companies.

The American Civil Liberties Union said the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution limits any action Trump could take to regulate such platforms.

Twitter declined comment on news of Trump’s plans. Facebook and Google did not immediately comment.

What a fucking moron! (Hopefully there aren't other fucking morons to insult! Wink )

Hey conservitives!! What's it going to take?? What does the 100% certified idiot have to do to prove to you that he's not competent to be our president? He's nothing but a spoiled, petulant, moronic, frightened, pathetically childish, little bully loser.

No one has yet seen the executive order, so it would seem to be somewhat premature to be commenting on it.

One thing is for sure: No president can shut down any company. The EO may simply be hortatory, as many are.

And sooo....NOW "Free Speech" means you can say whatever you want, even if it's slanderous lies, and no one can counter your opinion. And his Deplorassed minions are afraid of Socialism? Let's just skip that and head straight into a dictatorship. Laughing

Never forget, folks: this is about the continuing strategy of Distraction. "Keep stirring fights about outrageous things: it riles the Deplorables, AND keeps everybody's attention off of what is Real."

Facebook employees stage a virtual walkout over Zuckerberg's inaction on Trump posts

Quote:
The walkout comes alongside a rare wave of public dissent from Facebook employees on Twitter. Jason Stirman, a design manager at Facebook, said he disagreed with Zuckerberg's decision to do "nothing" about Trump's recent posts. "I'm not alone inside of FB. There isn't a neutral position on racism," he wrote in a tweet on Saturday.

"Giving a platform to incite violence and spread disinformation is unacceptable, regardless who you are or if it's newsworthy," Andrew Crow, head of design for Facebook's Portal devices, tweeted over the weekend. "I disagree with Mark's position and will work to make change happen."

A Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business: "We recognize the pain many of our people are feeling right now, especially our Black community. We encourage employees to speak openly when they disagree with leadership. As we face additional difficult decisions around content ahead, we'll continue seeking their honest feedback."

Zuckerberg defends decisions on Trump as Facebook employee unrest grows
Quote:
During the town hall, Zuckerberg did not back down from his decision to keep up the post, as many employees had hoped, according to several workers who were listening but declined to provide their names for fear of retribution.

At least five people have died in nationwide protests that began this weekend. Thousands more have been tear-gassed and injured.

Facebook's policy says it removes language that incites or facilitates serious violence.

At the town hall, Zuckerberg defended his decision that the post did not constitute a policy violation, as he personally walked employees through different interpretations of Trump's language.

#DeleteFacebookNow is trending on Twitter.

But considering Facebook also owns Instagram & TikTok, I doubt may people actually follow through.

I don't partake of any of those platforms so I'm ignorant of all the dynamics, but.....even if Zuckerberg owns all 3, doesn't it make a significant impact if people actually DO delete fb?

Facebook takes down Trump ads 'for violating our policy against organized hate'

Quote:
New York (CNN Business)Facebook (FB) on Thursday said it had take action against ads run by President Trump's re-election campaign for breaching its policies on hate. The ads, which attacked what the Trump campaign described as "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups," featured an upside-down triangle.

The Anti-Defamation League said Thursday the triangle "is practically identical to that used by the Nazi regime to classify political prisoners in concentration camps."

"We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate. Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol," Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesperson, told CNN Business.

The ads targeted the far left group Antifa, calling on Trump supporters to back the President's calls to designate the group a terrorist organization.
