Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey met with Donald Trump on Tuesday earning him begrudging admiration from some followers, but only contempt from the two-faced traitor.
Great meeting this afternoon at the @WhiteHouse with @Jack from @Twitter. Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue! pic.twitter.com/QnZi579eFb

Prior to the meeting with Jack, Trump spent his morning tweeting demands that the New York Times gets on their knees, calling media the enemy of the people and whining about Twitter in general,. I
Dorsey and trump talked about “the health of the public conversation on Twitter,” amongst other topics according to Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s global lead for legal, policy, and trust and safety.
Jack made a good case for meeting with the American President.
“As you know, I believe that conversation, not silence, bridges gaps and drives towards solutions,” Dorsey wrote. “I have met with every world leader who has extended an invitation to me, and I believe the discussions have been productive, and the outcomes meaningful.”
“Some of you will be very supportive of our meeting [with] the president,” Dorsey said, “and some of you might feel we shouldn’t take this meeting at all. In the end, I believe it’s important to meet heads of state in order to listen, share our principles and our ideas.”
So what did they talk about?
Dorsey has been criticized for allowing Trump to tweet unfettered, as the tyrant routinely violates the site’s policies with tweets that cause deadly social stigmatization of minorities, even causing some to fear for their families lives.
Trump Twitter Archive meticulously lists every malicious tweet from Trump such as “Disdain for constitutional rights”, “Defense of torture”, Calls for execution, calling the free press “enemy of the people”, banning “transgender,” and ‘Muslim’ people and hundreds of other violence enabling tropes.
Jack’s acquiesce to Trump’s methodical demolition of Democratic institutions is antithetical to American values. This outrage has given rise to a multitude of petitions demanding that Jack ban Trump from Twitter.
Daily Kos petition: Kick Trump off Twitter has nearly a quarter of a million signatures.
What Jack did reveal is that Twitter applies different standards to rich powerful politicians, maintaining that “their comments — even offensive ones — remain in the public interest.”
Twitter announced in March it would soon adopt a new approach, labeling offensive tweets so users know why such content hasn’t been removed.
Huffington Post asked Dorsey if it would take murder for Trump to be banned, and he hedged.
HP: So then is there anything that, say, Donald Trump could do that would qualify as a misuse? Because I know the newsworthy aspect of it outweighs a lot of that. But is there anything that he could do that would qualify as misusing the platform, regardless of newsworthiness?
Dorsey: Yeah, I mean, we’ve talked about this a lot, so I’m not going to rehash it. We believe it’s important that the world sees how global leaders think and how they act. And we think the conversation that ensues around that is critical.
OK, but if Trump tweeted out asking each of his followers to murder one journalist, would you remove him?
That would be a violent threat. We’d definitely … You know we’re in constant communication with all governments around the world. So we’d certainly talk about it.
OK, but if he did that, would that be grounds to—
I’m not going to talk about particulars. We’ve established protocol, it’s transparent. It’s out there for everyone to read. We have, independent of the U.S. president, we have conversations with all governments. It’s not just limited to this one.
Parker Molloy gets the big picture…
Here’s a great example of what I mean when I talk about conservatives “working the refs”:
It’s basic cause and effect. Republicans whine about a non-existent problem, complain of bias that simply isn’t there… and then they get special treatment as a result. pic.twitter.com/W3Gol3mDc0

Trump looks to destroy or at a minimum cow mainstream media prior to the 2020 elections so he could kill as he suggested he would without repercussions.
