The President did not like Twitter to start fact-checking his tweets and accused this social network of censoring conservative voices.
On Wednesday, just one day after Twitter started verifying the content of his messages, the U.S. President Donald Trump accused social media of silencing conservative voices and threatened to regulate or shut them down.
"Republicans feel that social media platforms totally silence conservatives' voices. We will strongly regulate or close them down before we can ever allow this to happen. We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016," Trump tweeted.
"We can't let a more sophisticated version of that happen again. Just like we can't let large scale Mail-In Ballots take root in our country. It would be a free for all on cheating, forgery, and the theft of Ballots. Whoever cheated the most would win. Likewise, social media. Clean up your act, NOW!!!!," he stressed.
On Tuesday, Twitter linked a Trump's message disqualifying mail-in ballot with verified information which contradicts what he had posted. This is a common procedure on Twitter, although this social network had not previously applied it to the U.S. president.
