President Donald J. Trump met with Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey today, just hours after blasting the social network from his personal Twitter account.

“White House source confirms Twitter meeting with [Jack Dorsey] and [Trump] already happened today,” said Charlie Spiering.

Just minutes after Spiering’s Tweet, Trump himself confirmed the meeting.

“Great meeting this afternoon at the with from . Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue!” he said.

 

Tuesday morning, Trump was at odds with the powerful microblogging platform, accusing it of playing “political games.”

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

His previous Tweet referenced a Fox News reporter who said he was the best thing to ever happen to Twitter, in which he called the company “very discriminatory” towards Republicans.

Twitter has often been accused of censorship of conservatives. Most recently, the company was sued by right-wing activist and journalist Laura Loomer after it banned her from the platform. One month ago, Twitter’s legal head said that it was “working closely” to censor Trump himself. Right wing figures like Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Alex Jones, and Roger Stone have all been permanently banned from the site.

Some do not think the platform can be saved from its own bias, and are already looking ahead to a world post-big tech.

Big League Politics reported:

Coming off of the heels of a smash CPAC speech, author and speaker Michele Malkin recommended a list of alternative social media platforms for conservatives on Thursday.

Malkin suggested that conservatives check out the alternatives to left-wing and biased platforms such as Facebook and Google on Twitter.

The platforms Malkin are promoting are new and insurgent alternatives to major Silicon Valley monopolies that regularly practice mass censorship, banning of conservative users, manipulation of search results, and much more.

Gab Attacked in Coordinated Hacking Attempt, Timed to Coincide with CPAC

This hack coincided with Trump’s CPAC speech.

Published

on

Free speech social media platform Gab was attacked in a coordinated hacking operation sometime this weekend, with malicious actors briefly compromising accounts of prominent users of the platform.

Gab founder Andrew Torba disclosed the cyberattack, revealing that left-wing operatives had sought to compromise both his own Gab account and an archive account reserved for President Donald Trump. The attack compromised Trump’s reserved account minutes before the President was slated to speak on-stage at CPAC- with the timing suggesting the President may announce he’s joining the free speech social media service.

It’s unclear which other accounts were targeted. Torba confirmed that Gab was cooperating with law enforcement in response to the breach. Alt-tech competitor Parler also suffered from frequent data breaches and insecurity, and it may be that powerful institutions determined to take down Parler have shifted their focus to terroristic tactics targeting Gab.

Gab has been targeted on previous occasions by entities that oppose its mission to restore free speech on the internet. Torba’s disclosure of the incident differs greatly from the deceptive business tactics of Facebook and Twitter, which regularly decline to reveal data breaches and sell user information to corporations and governments at a whim and without any user consent.

Big League Politics is monitoring the situation for any further developments.
