This oughta be good. His staff, lawyers, and DOJ will be up all night trying to figure out something he can do to stop Twitter from attaching a fact check to his tweets.
It has to be done.. we need fair elections. We need the conservative message out

If you want control...you're a publishers. No more
indemnity protections...then sue every day.

But the courts decided that, and they are the ones who need to reverse it. The President doesn't have the authority to tell a private company what to do. They have "standards" and if he doesn't like it, he doesn't have to use them. Right?

It’s their site....they set the rules of behavior
Negative Ghostrider.



A platform doesn't get to chose what gets posted...a publisher does.

If they are a platform, they are indemnified...if they are a publisher, they aren't.

It's either fish our fowl...can't be both.

I'm afraid what you're really wanting is ONLY the conservative message out. No one is stopping conservatives from tweeting or facebooking or blogging or running radio programs and newspapers and magazines. There's a bazillion of them--I see them every day here.

CNN and Washington Compost are not fact checkers and the referenced articles in the attached links were to opinion articles. Opinions aren't facts for fucks sake. And there's countless examples of mail in voter fraud. Trump stated an opinion and did not cite facts so twitter has no standing whatsoever. Damn, you go with any stupid shit you're told by the echo chamber.

You sure? They don't have a right to take down youtubes of people being murdered or tortured? They don't have the right to take down a racist rant? A threat against the President? Are you sure they don't have a right to impose standards? They aren't writing or even inviting any particular input. It seems to me they have a right to take down what they please.

Publishers hire people to write content. That is not what Twitter does.

ANDROID is a platform...should Google get to choose what you use your phone for?

If Twitter wants the liability protection of being a platform...they don't get to control content. Simple as that.

If twitter is going to fact check that is going to help Trump close them down....fact checking takes them out of the realm of being a forum to being a news agency....

When you "fact check" the President .....but you don't "fact check" the networks spreading Communist Chinese propaganda, then yes, you get to be shut down.

Hope the President signs the executive order NOW! :thup:
