Trump threatens to 'regulate' social media platforms. His options may be limited

President Donald Trump threatened to "regulate" or even "close" down social media platforms in a series of tweets over the last day after Twitter added a fact-check label to some of his posts. But Trump's options for cracking down on Twitter and other platforms over how they moderate their platforms are somewhat limited, legal experts say.

Twitter tried to correct Trump's falsehoods about vote by mail, but the platform's first fact-check on the president's tweets was itself misleading

For the first time on Tuesday, Twitter rolled out a feature to flag Trump's tweets about voting by mail as misleading in an effort to provide more context and fact-check them.  The platform added a "get the facts about mail-in ballots" banner below Trump tweets falsely claiming that mail ballots in California will be "substantially fraudulent," "stolen from mailboxes," and sent to non-voters. Twitter's fact-check section contradicted itself by both saying that mail-in ballots are "very rarely ...

Where Things Stand: Not All Fall In Line Behind The Next Great Political Divide

If President Trump had his way, mask-wearing would play a crucial role in whatever us-versus-them narrative he attempts to spin for his reelection. The President has repeatedly refused to wear a mask in public and during appearances at the White House. He went after former VP and 2020 rival Joe Biden for wearing a mask to a Memorial Day event this week and the new White House press secretary had to contort herself to defend his attacks. He told a reporter yesterday that his mask-wearing was j...

This Twitter employee is now at the center of Trump's pushback against the platform because he criticized Trump in past tweets (TWTR)

A Twitter employee has come under fire from President Donald Trump's allies and top advisers after old tweets surfaced Wednesday in which the employee is critical of Trump. Twitter Head of Site Integrity Yoel Roth tweeted that Trump a "racist tangerine" and decried "ACTUAL NAZIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE" in 2016 and 2017. Trump allies widely circulated the tweets Wednesday, purportedly as evidence of Twitter's anti-conservative bias. Roth is now at the center of Trump's ire over Twitter's decision t...

Trump Threatens To Shut Social Media Companies After Twitter Fact Check

President Donald Trump threatened to regulate or shutter social media companies -- a warning apparently aimed at Twitter after it began fact-checking his tweets. From a report: In a pair of tweets issued Wednesday morning from his iPhone, Trump said that social media sites are trying to silence conservative voices, and need to change course or face action.

After Twitter fact-check, Trump threatens to regulate or close down social media platforms

Once again, Trump has doubled down. Following the addition of a fact-checking warning label added to his tweet about mail-in ballots, Trump took to the platform yet again to denounce it. In what may be his strongest words to date against a service that has largely given him free rein to this point, the President suggested that social media services would have to be regulated or shut down. Republicans have long held that social media sites harbor an anti-conservative bias.  “Republicans feel t...
