Trump threatens to ‘close’ social-media platforms as he fights with Twitter
[www.marketwatch.com]

“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen.”

Twitter declined to comment about the president’s threat.

Government censorship and first amendment violations? Really?
How long until he starts to imprison political rivals - oh wait - he’s trying to do that with Obama, isn’t he?

If he doesn't like the service he's getting from Twitter he should close his account and get a full refund of what he paid for it.

Or Twitter should do what he does when someone criticizes him, they should "fire him" and close his account.

Or he could start telling the truth, or at least explain why their fact checking is inaccurate.

He will continue to do his best to find alternative stories to the viral death toll. I wonder how long it will take for somebody to bring up Fox News.

“ If he doesn't like the service he's getting from Twitter he should close his account and get a full refund of what he paid for it. ”

And create “Trumpeter”. That’s what free markets are all about. It is interesting the lack of understanding that some deplorables exhibit regarding the 1st Amendment and the Constitution generally.

Isn't there already an alt-Twitter for the Nazis that had their freeze peach taken away?

How's that going? Why doesn't Trump just go there?

Or start his own?

He's not threatening, he's starting the process for doing it, with executive orders. Backed by Republicans.

Those articles make clear that he is ordering a review of a law, in the hopes of pushing congressional Republicans to gut section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, a legislative move that has 0% chance of passage in the current Congress.

Wooooo, scary stuff.
