Twitter to start policing gov’t officials,
will slap ‘disclaimer’ on Trump’s tweets
that break its ‘rules’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/27/2019 5:33:53 PM

Twitter has announced that it intends to add what would essentially be warning labels and disclaimers to tweets posted by world leaders that allegedly violate the platform’s controversial and highly inconsistent policies concerning abuse, harassment, threats and so-called hate speech.While the social media network has denied that this new rule has anything to do with President Donald Trump, there’s a strong belief that the rule is in fact centered on stymieing him.“[T]here are certain cases where it may be in the public’s interest to have access to certain Tweets, even if they would otherwise be in violation of our rules,” the social media network announced in a blog post Thursday.

It would seem the big tech companies have decided they have something to gain by provoking Trump. I'm wondering if this is more of their disconnect. After all, everyone THEY know says they won't stand for Trump or his administration interfering in a First Amendment issue. They forget, their actions in censuring content harm a greater swath of the public than them selves. I think they are about to provoke their destruction.

Hey, fellow Twitties, I have an idea. Let’s cut Trump off from tweeting. That’ll force him to communicate to the peepul via the media like he’s s’pose to. He’ll never come up with a way to go around us and CNN.

Why is anyone with a brain still using "social media," when it's all too clear that it's really socialist media and the goal is to turn you into a mindless compliant dhimmibot?

I've accidentally seen some of the tweets replying to PDTs tweets and they are outrageous. Will Twitter also slap disclaimers on them? I think not.

Please keep saying America is great. Because it is. I say this in response to the New York Times' Nayeema Raza and Taige Jensen's video request to the alternate,"Please stop telling me America is great." The problems begin with the authors' assessment of the U.S. poverty rate, which is lower than it might be because so many of the world's poor seek to make their homes here, knowing that economic opportunity awaits them.Referencing the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Raza and Jensen offer a graphic which says the U.S. has the "highest poverty rate."

Of course, it’s a summer holiday week. So, this good news somehow slipped by most media critics of this president. But the latest government figures just showed that in April the United States produced a new record amount of oil per day — a stunning 12.16 million barrels of oil every 24 hours. [Snip] Of more significance, the oil production jump makes the United States the world’s largest producer of oil, ahead of the usual slippery suspects like Saudi Arabia and Russia. How’s that for energy independence? And how can presidential debaters turn that into a negative?

He responded it will a bigger issue for Mr. Trump. “The president gets elected to solve problems, that why he gets hired, or she gets hired to solve these problems, he hasn’t solved them, he’s made matters worse,” the Ohio Democrat said.
