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.
