For the White House tenant, the battle against social media seems to be looming as one of the workhorses to keep the attention on his election campaign high. This is also demonstrated by the sentence pronounced against technology companies: “The large hi-tech companies are doing everything in their power to censor the 2020 elections. If this happens we would lose our freedom, and I will not allow that happen! ” Tweet Donald Trump: “They tried in 2016 and lost. Now they will go crazy. Stay tuned!!”.
Big Tech is doing everything in their very considerable power to CENSOR in advance of the 2020 Election. If that happens, we no longer have our freedom. I will never let it happen! They tried hard in 2016, and lost. Now they are going absolutely CRAZY. Stay Tuned !!!

“We will continue to report incorrect or disputed information about the global elections,” writes Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in three tweets in which he speaks on the matter. Trump’s tweets “could lead people to mistakenly think that you don’t need to register to get a ballot,” writes Dorsey explaining Twitter’s intervention. Reporting incorrect information “does not make us an ‘arbiter of truth'”, highlights Dorsey.
For our Civic Integrity policy (https://t.co/uQ0AoPtoCm), the tweets yesterday may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot (only registered voters receive ballots). We are updating the link on @realDonaldTrumpIt’s tweet to make this more clear.
