Donald Trump’s angry at Twitter, but not enough to quit tweeting

Social Media Summit Day: Donald Trump Slams Tech Companies, Mocks Elizabeth Warren’s Appearance, Calls Himself A Great Looking Stable Genius

All Americans have the right to speak freely, not just supporters of one political party or another, President Donald Trump told social media platforms at a White House "summit" featuring mainly influencers who have supported him.

Bizarrely a Twitter global outage coincided precisely with the the White House gathering and Trump also took the trouble to fire a warning shot to Facebook about its Libra cryptocurrency plans, which you can see below. To be fair any media that Trump has dismissed as "fake news" (most of it) did have fairly good reason to feel provoked if you look at the Trump Twitter thread below, send immediately in advance of the summit. Two of the people said Parler in particular isn't ready.

Carpe Donktum, a pro-Trump online persona who was recently suspended by Twitter for eight days over a video depicting Mr Trump as a cowboy attacking CNN journalist Jim Acosta, said the face-to-face event could unite online conservatives.

It became as soon as, as President Trump promised, a colossal and thrilling day on the White Dwelling for Social Media. "I mean it's genius - but it's bad".

Trump in a March tweet accused Facebook, Google and Twitter of being "on the side of the Radical Left Democrats". Kamala Harris of California, a Democratic presidential candidate, is actually an "American black", and Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit founder who has always been faulted for spreading conspiracy theories online.

Sites like Twitter and YouTube, for example, allow actual terrorists, such as the Palestinian group Hamas, to maintain a large presence while blocking American patriots who question liberal dogma concerning Second Amendment rights by claiming it advocates violence.

US President Donald Trump: Facebook Needs a Bank License for Its Cryptocurrency
Several high-level officials have spoken out against Libra over the past week, including Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell . Trump's position seems to be that the USA dollar is sufficient and that cryptocurrencies , based on "thin air" are "not money".

Facebook and Twitter were not invited, and Trump bashed the companies for censoring right-wing voices.

Trump also invited lawmakers including Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Sen. Three tech officials said they had no knowledge of the meeting before Trump announced it.

In an early morning series of tweets, Trump said that the focus of the conversation would be "the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies", though he didn't mention any by name. "We will not let them get away with it much longer", Trump tweeted.

Twitter removed several fake accounts a year ago and in the process, Trump also lost almost 3 lakh followers.

Lawmakers bristled at the summit: Many said that the Trump administration had missed an opportunity to explore real challenges facing social media ahead of the 2020 election, amid heightened fears about the spread of hate speech and even harder-to-detect viral falsehoods.
