Donald Trump attacks Twitter, Facebook and Google

President of the United State, Donald Trump has taken to his twitter handle to accuse Twitter, Facebook and Google of bias.

“Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Dems it is ridiculous! Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join @realDonaldTrump. They have removed many names & greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING!” he said in a tweet. 

Tech giants have been on a mission to purge out the fake accounts and many bots on their platforms, which Trump describes as shadow banning.


You will recall that in July @RealDonaldTrump lost many followers on Twitter due to the purge carried out on the platform.

“Twitter ‘SHADOW BANNING’ prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints,” Trump tweeted in July.

A spokesman of Twitter has in a statement said;
“Our focus is on the health of the service, and that includes work to remove fake accounts to prevent malicious behavior”.
“Many prominent accounts have seen follower counts drop, but the result is higher confidence that the followers they have are real, engaged people.”

This is coming after many platforms have face huge criticism following the allegations that they are the tools in aiding and abetting spread of fake news and most Seriously, the American 2016 election. That witnessed Russia direct influence using disinformation campaign on Facebook,Twitter and Google.
