President Trump Meeting With Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey In Oval Office. Here’s What They’re Discussing.

President Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to have a chat about possible bias from the company when it comes to the silencing of conservative voices, something that’s been a major issue for the last couple of years.

Dorsey, a co-founder of the company, founded it in 2006. He was CEO between 2006 and 2008, then again back in 2015 until the present.

In a statement to CNN, a spokesperson for Twitter said, “Jack had a constructive meeting with the President of the United States today at the president’s invitation. They discussed Twitter’s commitment to protecting the health of the public conversation ahead of the 2020 U.S. elections and efforts underway to respond to the opioid crisis.”

Earlier Tuesday, Trump had accused Twitter of “playing political games,” saying “they don’t treat me well as a Republican.” He also said it was “hard for people to sign on” and that Twitter was “[c]onstantly taking people off list,” which seemed to refer to his followers being deleted.

The Washington Post claimed, via an anonymous source who said the meeting was “cordial,” that Dorsey told Trump that his lost followers were part of the company’s crackdown on spam and bot accounts.

Whether Dorsey wants to admit it or not, there has been video proof of his employees purposefully targeting conservatives for their ideology and seeking to block them from having their voices heard.

Thing is, this is not just a private company. Twitter has become one of the primary means people have of getting their news, which means if they aren’t fair and balanced, folks will only get coverage from news outlets on one side of the spectrum. That’s propaganda pushing.

This is the point that Democrats and liberals can’t seem to grasp. Twitter stopped being simply a “private company,” the moment it accepted its role as a disseminator of information. They now have a responsibility to ensure that both sides of an issue have their voices heard.

Unfortunately, they neglect that responsibility and take sides, which is ultimately going to hurt the platform.

Let’s hope Dorsey takes some of this to heart.
