Washington, D.C. — Demolishing yet again another White House norm, autocrat adorer and hamburger enthusiast Dotard Trump is said to be planning on delivering this year’s State Of The Union address via a Twitter live feed from his golden toilet.
Twitter shares plummeted 11 percent Thursday after a short-seller called the Web site “the Harvey Weinstein of social media.”
Citron Research’s Andrew Left piled on the social network in response to an Amnesty International report from earlier this week that labeled it a breeding ground for abuse and hate speech.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s tweets have triggered an angry backlash for the second time in less than a month.
Dorsey posted a series of tweets over the weekend about a recent visit to Myanmar, calling it “an absolutely beautiful country.”
After weeks of equivocation, Twitter permanently suspended the accounts of Infowars and its founder Alex Jones on Thursday, following similar moves by other large tech companies, including Apple, Facebook, YouTube, and Spotify. The decision came after a series of provocations from Jones that Twitter deemed in violation of its “abusive behavior” rules.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has doubled down on defending his company’s decision not to kick far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones off its platform.
“We didn’t suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday,” Dorsey tweeted Tuesday. “We know that’s hard for many but the reason is simple: he hasn’t violated our rules. We’ll enforce if he does. And we’ll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren’t artificially amplified.”
