(AbsoluteNews.com) – On May 26, Twitter added fact-check alerts to two of President Donald Trump’s tweets about mail-in-voting. The president, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and others spoke out against the social media company’s decision. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is now trying to explain his actions.
After Twitter fact-checked the president, he said he was looking into regulations to stop the company from interfering in the 2020 presidential election. Zuckerberg lied and said his company doesn’t believe it’s the “arbiter of truth” even though Facebook has also added a fact check to a post by Trump. Dorsey responded to the criticism in a series of tweets on his platform.
This does not make us an “arbiter of truth.” Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions.

The problem here is much larger than Twitter. Social media companies have a long history of censoring and suppressing the voices of Conservatives. Their decision to attack the president of the United States is just the latest example of their power over political speech. The question is: What are lawmakers going to do about it?
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
