….Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!

Twitter on Tuesday slapped a fact-check label on President Trump’s tweets for the first time, a response to long-standing criticism that the company is too hands-off when it comes to policing misinformation and falsehoods from world leaders.
The move, which escalates tensions between Washington and Silicon Valley in an election year, was made in response to two Trump tweets over the past 24 hours. The tweets falsely claimed that mail-in ballots are fraudulent. Twitter’s label says, “Get the facts about mail-in ballots,” and redirects users to news articles about Trump’s unsubstantiated claim.

TWITTER is now inserting link to “fact check” & bash what is in POTUS’ TWEET. Twitter is asshoe!
Twitter made a HUGE mistake. They have now injected themselves into a US election and decided to become editorialists, rather than a platform. ALL platform protections should be immediately revoked and Twitter should be treated as a publisher. They did this to themselves.

LEFTIST GARBAGE SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATE:
When does Trump deliver the death blow by leaving Twitter for Gab? That it will happen is inevitable, it’s just a question of timing.
