Big tech companies have started a war that they cannot win. Earlier today, we wrote about Facebook and Twitter after the two tech giants censored sourced reporting from the New York Post’s story about bombshell emails and video obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop. Twitter later censored New York Post tweets and locked its account
Now about three hours later, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologizes after U.S. Presiden Trump threatened to remove Facebook and Twitter protections and called them ‘terrible’ for blocking the New York Post story. President Trump is called for an end to Section 230 immunity that protects sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others.
In a tweet, Dorsey said the following:
“Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.”
