Trump: Twitter 'Very Discriminatory' to Conservatives

President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused Twitter of being “very discriminatory” towards Republicans and playing “political games” with conservatives’ accounts and feeds.

Trump quoted Wedbush Securities Equity Research Managing Director Daniel Ives, a guest on Maria Bartiromo's Fox Business Network show, who said that “the best thing ever to happen to Twitter is Donald Trump.”

Trump added, “So true, but they don’t treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names,” more than 100 million.

“But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games,” Trump wrote in a second tweet. “No wonder Congress wants to get involved - and they should. Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD!”


Many conservatives have claimed that Twitter unfairly censors right-leaning accounts while allowing left-leaning ones, and that the company “shadow bans” posts from conservatives, meaning Twitter makes the post unavailable for other users.

"Not only does big tech have the power to silence voices with which they disagree, but big tech likewise has the power to collate a person's feed so they only receive the news that comports with their own political agenda," Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said earlier this month during a Senate briefing, according to The Washington Post.

"By almost any measure the giant tech companies today are larger, and more powerful, than Standard Oil was when it was broken up," he added. "And if we have tech companies using the powers of monopoly to censor political speech, I think that raises real antitrust issues."
