Trump to examine anti-conservative 'dishonesty,' 'bias' among USA social media giants

President Trump is an avid social media user but he has also come down hard on Big Tech. He's hosting a social media summit on Thursday and some of his biggest supporters on social media will attend

"Some of you are extraordinary".

"But Mr Trump appeared to preview his remarks at a White House social media summit, where he complained about being told: "'Sir, you can't ask that question. because the courts said you can't'".

So quite fittingly, President Donald Trump spent his entire morning tweeting incessantly.

"Somebody said he's controversial", Trump said. Attendees reportedly include social media personalities and leaders from conservative think tanks. Mark Warner of Virginia. In response, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have held hearings to criticize these moves and the White House launched a website that allows people to report allegations of political bias by social media companies. To be fair any media that Trump has dismissed as "fake news" (most of it) did have fairly good reason to feel provoked if you look at the Trump Twitter thread below, send immediately in advance of the summit. He said he was directing his administration to "explore all legislative and regulatory solutions to protect free speech and the free speech of all Americans".

The White House spokesman said about 130 people would attend, without providing a guest list. "The only thing we can't ask is, 'Are you a citizen of the United States?'"

The tool comes in the wake of several Republicans slamming Facebook and Twitter for censoring conservative speech on both the platforms.

Everyone’s sleeping on Amazon Music Unlimited
While these devices can play music from other services like Spotify , they default to Amazon services in many cases. The Apple Music service is available for the iOS, HomePod, Apple Watch, Amazon Echo, macOS, Apple TV and more.

The event underscores the escalating tensions between social media companies and prominent conservatives as tech giants begin cracking down on hate speech, violence and other content that violates their rules.

Representatives from Facebook and Twitter were not invited, CNN reported. He stressed there is "no conservative bias on our platforms".

Trump in a March tweet accused Facebook, Google and Twitter of being "on the side of the Radical Left Democrats".

Trump praised numerous participants and noticed the videos and images they created in support of the president. Among them will be Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit, a site that's published right-wing conspiracy theories. "We hope to see transparency, more accountability and more freedom". Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., who have accused Twitter in the past of limiting the reach of their tweets.

According to Reuters, the president said he would "be calling a big meeting of the companies in a week or two - they have to be here". "We will not let them get away with it much longer". He also made light of the spelling mistakes he makes on the social media platform. "If I put it out on social media, it's like an explosion". However Trump was interrupted during his address by a fly, which he admitted he doesn't like.
