RE: Bounty: What happened with trump and twitter
In general, Trump has been on to say that the social media site try and censor voices on the right. He has been mad at them and one of the things he has threatened them with is removing the protections they have from getting sued over those maters. As it stands today if I was on twitter and they ban me I can't do much of anything.
So after Twitter put a fact check on one of his tweets he has now started movements to do what he said. Trump feels that the fact that they put these fact checks on this tweets and not others is just more proof that Twitter and other platforms target conservatives. So he is trying to take away the part of the communications act of 230 that has prevented conservative voice who has been banned from suing in court.
In reality, his order is going to get caught up in court. I am not sure if he can do what he trying or not. While it is in place you might see some people try to sue Twitter. You also could see Twitter back off and stop doing the fact checks and bans. I don't really see that happening but possible.
Really he will set up the legal battle wither or not private companies like Twitter can control their platforms as they want. Or if the federal government is going to step in and say that you can't block users. Or you can't put in real-time fact checks. Which other limits they would want to put on them.
