Online Divisions: Twitter, Facebook Diverge on Trump’s Words
Breitbart cites Research Fellow Patrick Hedger on President Trump and social media censorship:
“It’s really a no-win scenario’’’ for social media companies, said Patrick Hedger, research fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Conservatives will complain if they block or correct Trump statements. Liberals will cry foul if they don’t.
Hedger also noted that “the unmoderated world does exist,’’ pointing to Gab.com, which has become a haven for extremist views. “The unmoderated internet is not a pretty place,’’ he said.
