    They've applied these tags to plenty of other tweets, just not the presidents. When outright false information is being disseminated to users on their platform, they are entirely responsible for moderating its content. It's about damn time they finally applied the same moderation to his tweets as well, he's continually been a one off with their policies, hope they continue to tag things easily verified as false. And Communism? lol. No. Twitter is a private service, the government isn't censoring anyone whatsoever in your nutty scenario, how would that be communism? The irony in your statement is that Trump/government wanting to shutdown social media because he doesn't like their opinion and thinks it's misleading, that may be.

    It's about time, but if they are taking a stand they should go all the way and not let the President of the United States continue to peddle lies through its platform on other issues as well, because DJT clearly uses Twitter as one of his "official" means of communication. Or he can **** off to Gab.ai with all the other nazis.

    The news title should instead be 'Donald Trump signs an executive order aiming to censor social media'. Placing a disclaimer on a message does not constitute censorship.

    Curbing social media “censorship” (lol) but then said he’d shut down Twitter if he could. this guy is certified bonkers. I feel so sorry for the remaining good people in the US with having to put up with him and your broken political system. At least the rest of us can see what a train wreck the US has become and can navigate our way around a similar fate in future.

    Are you serious? Do you understand the definition of the word fact? There is no room for interpretation or bias, he is spreading false information and is now being called out on it. What are you actually ranting about?
  7. 15 points
    No, it's not. It's their platform and they can do whatever they want. The President as usual is misleading people regarding mail-in ballots and he needs to be called out on it and they need to do it more often. I wish Facebook had the balls to do the same to him.

    But clearly social media sites like Facebook have too much power/political influence. that's why it's a problem and things need to be more neutral. Fact checking misinformation seems to be a good neutral move.

    He doesn't even understand what free speech is ... free speech covers government and public space only. I think some states extended it to privately owned space open to public but it's the exception more than the rule and it's within the state only.

    What a hypocritical dumb ass. Calling out lies and inaccurate statements with a tag is not censoring. What you threatened to do because you were called out IS. Admit that you're wrong Trump and move on ...

    Free speech upheld by more government involvement. Right. Uh, huh. Sure. Have the Trumpets seen the light yet about how their messiah isn’t what he claimed to be? Surely this makes it obvious. Nah, probably not.

    Like most Conservatives, Trump has a very warped understanding of how free speech works. Getting criticised for saying stupid crap doesn't take away your speech, neither does granting others the right to correct your constant stream of lies, in fact preventing them from doing so would take away their free speech. Conservatives are like a bunch of children that can't hack hearing the word no.

    I'm not going to single out Wikipedia specifically here but why is it in a business or a specific field in general where there are more men than women it's a gender issue but in other fields where it's more women than men no one cares or brings it up? It's about time everyone got to grips with the fact that men and women, on average, like different things and fields of work. Equal opportunity is fine, but when you try to force equal equity things are only going to quickly fall apart. There's no place on earth this type of idea/model works. You can't change human nature/psychology.

    Freedom of speech and combating misinformation are two separate things that the president does not understand.

    It's not okay for a president to spread lies without being called out on it. We need a checks and balance system for social media or we end up in an Orwellian 1984 where the lie becomes the truth and truth becomes the lie.

    Trump is always criticizing fake news. He said something that has been repeatedly investigated and repeatedly debunked. It was Fake News. Twitter did not remove the post they simply said it may not be true. What I love is that Twitter saying Oh that may not be true is communism...but a president saying he will shut down media outlets that do not paint him in a favorable light (and not for the first time), is okay? Engaging in debate with your leaders...Communism, shutting down the free press...Patriotic? Do you want a dictionary for Christmas?

    He is trying to protect the vote, and thus the sovereignty of the electoral system. Are you for real? Ya, right, he's trying to protect the vote! Then how come he has had no issue with mailing in his own vote in the past? This guy is such a moron with his 2nd grade vocabulary that he has made the USA a laughing stock of the world. I can't wait for him to get tossed out of the White House and then face the charges New York and other places want to bring against him!

    More like.... social media websites: free speech if your on the left, but if your on the right we will just claim it's hate speech (or some other BS) when it's really censorship of views we don't like (which is usually comments telling the truth because if they are not afraid of opposing views they would not have to censor them. but since the truth generally does not favor the left they have to resort to shady tactics to 'win'). You seem to ignore the key facts here, Twitter didn't censor Trump's tweets. You also seem to want to ignore that it's Trump talking about censoring others, yet you want to project that view on to others (twitter in this case).

    But clearly no where near Biden level (it's going to be priceless watching Trump stream-roll Biden in the debates). Trump 2020 for the sake of the country as if the godless left gets into power they will destroy the country as they want things to return to pre-Trump era (i.e. back to their usual corruption and the hell with the common person). many in power on the left are inline with this verse from the Bible... "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter." - Isaiah 5 : 20 because on the left what was once good is now bad and what was once bad is now good. they basically favor disorder over order. Please provide examples of how Biden is more of a child than Trump. Im unaware of examples of Biden running away from female reporters who ask basic questions or making fun of and calling people names almost daily or whine about being fact checked and suggest taking away Constitutional Rights. So if you have examples of Biden being worse than what Trump has done, Id love to see them. As for your biblical nonsense, not sure what that has anything to do with the current topic.

    It's no more prone to fraud than other methods of voting. People simply don't go around stealing ballots, en masse, pulling them off mail trucks, or throw them away at processing center. It's just yet another republican conspiracy theory. Ways to further ensure ballots are properly received: - Text message saying their request for a mail in ballot was received - Text message/tracking number when mail in ballot is sent AND delivered to voter - Text message/tracking number when mail in ballot is received by election board My county already has some of this in place, but considering how unmotivated the current senate is in regards to election reforms, it'll never happen nationally. They'd lose yet another talking point that's nothing more than fluff and red meat to their base. Mail-in voting was utilized in my state for the primary, in fact it was the only method of voting. It'll be a hard sell to remove it now that it successfully worked. There were also ballot issues, i.e levies, local elections, etc... Mail-in voting is happening in November, whether Trump and his base like it or not. And it'll be on a large scale. Red states might go ahead and restrict its use. Swing states though... outside of Wisconsin, all signs point to it being a viable option. Wisconsin election board also took a ton of flack for their behavior during the primary, voters were not thrilled that they were being pushed to vote, right at the time when covid was really taking off, all so partisans could make sure their supreme court judges could be voted on. It ended up biting them. If only we had online voting. But that'd get everyone to vote, and well, suppressing the vote is how some people stay elected.

    Here is what the conservative new media is not telling you! Fact: Fox News has a history of pro-Trump coverage and has cheerleaders; Hannity, Carlson, and Dobbs Another Fact: Fox News is run by right wing biased conservatives.

    If the platforms silence conservative voices more often than liberal ones, it's because the conservative ones break rules of common decency more often. You can express whatever opinion you want on things that are a matter of opinion. But when you do the same with facts, that is called lying, and it should rightly be stopped, even in the name of free speech. If Trump wishes to promote a hard-right agenda, and does so with well-verified statements and considered policies, he is welcome to.

    What Twitter did was flat wrong. They need to cut themselves from being opiniated and do what they are supposed to be doing. Labels, where do they get off putting labels on tweets. The Democrats would have burnt Twitter down it it happened to them. Next thing Twitter will be doing is trying to restrict tweeting to tweets they feel could be false or misleading. Hello, communism!

    Remember when Republicans argued that companies are free to moderate their platforms when it benefited them? Fun times. Bear in mind that this is still Twitter measuring with 2 sticks. Any other person would long ago have been banned from the platform altogether.

    Ok, first let's set the ground work: Trump is a habitual liar. The amount of mail-in voting fraud is so minute it probably wouldn't register so it's not a big deal and steps can be taken to secure mail-in voting. While you just highlighted the news organizations sentence, you didn't call out the last sentence, experts; and Trump is no expert. Remember his failed committee looking into voting fraud in 2016, politics/trump-dismantles-voter-fraud-commission-heres-what-the-controversial-group-did?

    Like others have said, marking a tweet as not factual or not being fact checked is not censorship and has zero to do with free speech. Trump can't and isn't going to do anything about social media anyways. This is a nice PR stunt to get his base riled up because he knows very well that as much as they like using social media they at the same time want to hate on it and call it out as being some leftist controlled syndicate. What ever happened to not using something you don't like? If the far right hates twitter, how about they band together and make their own version of twitter? If they feel that they're being somehow unfairly censored and all that, the internet is open, make your own platform. Except in this case, as in others, and on both sides, these are all the vocal minority who can scream the loudest online. I'd like to believe that the vast majority, regardless of country, are rational people.

    But clearly social media sites like Facebook have too much power/political influence. that's why it's a problem and things need to be more neutral. While I agree that social media has too much influence, marking a post as not fact checked, or as misinformation after they do a fact check on it is hardly a problem and doesn't mess with your free speech right in the least.

    Looks like someone is having a temper tantrum in the White House because he was fact checked.... Is he the biggest snow flake on the planet at the moment? Should we find him a safe space in social media where the left wont fact check him?

The irony in your statement is that Trump/government wanting to shutdown social media because he doesn't like their opinion and thinks it's misleading, that may be. Moreover, Twitter is much like Neowin, Facebook, Instagram, TicTok, Youtube and the rest are not a government entities and all are privately owned. They can set the rules and enforce them. But that's a part of "freedom" some can't seem to grasp.

    lol the comments in here are like clockwork. So predictable. There has to be a point where all these people bitching about efforts to curb incorrect information and outright falsehoods, have to really start and wonder, that gee, every single service that is enforcing fact checking, limiting false edits... these efforts somehow conflict with their values.. and maybe start to wonder if those values/views are flawed? Half of you all sound like you're at stage 1 or 2 of the grieving process, you've got a long way to go till acceptance that you're conditioned and brainwashed into not believing actual, verifiable facts, as well as not accepting the efforts to combat falsehoods. Not to mention, nobody should be using Wikipedia as a primary source of information, at least not without looking at the sources list at the bottom, which no doubt contains sites that you've also been mind warped into thinking are fake. It'd almost be funny, if it weren't so pathetic. Literal bitching about efforts to limit toxic behavior, we alternate universe have we all fallen into.

    A lie is not a valid "opinion". It's a falsehood. President Pathological Liar has every right to lie over 16,000 times now to the public. Just as every American has the right to point out that he's a pathological liar. The facts are the facts. And everyone is entitled in the US to their opinion of the facts and even to lie about them, as Trump does constantly. But he doesn't get to lie and not be called out on it. Fortunately, he has no power over banning or censoring social media. He's lying about that too, of course.
