United States President, Donald Trump on Thursday signed the executive order which aims to modify the legal protections currently shielding Big Tech from lawsuits over content hosted on its platforms.
This follows his brawl with Twitter after the social media giant put ‘fact-checkers’ on some of his tweets about mail box voting, signaling that Trump’s comments could be misleading the American public.
During his press briefing on yesterday, Trump was asked by one of the reporters if he had considered deleting his Twitter account given his frustration over censorship.
The president went on to blame the “fake news” media for forcing him to remain on the platform. “If we had a fair press in this country, I would do that in a heartbeat. There’s nothing that I’d rather do than get rid of my whole Twitter account,” he said.
