Trump, Twitter CEO meet at White House
President Donald Trump said he had a "great meeting" Tuesday with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, hours after bashing the company and accusing it of not treating him well because he's a Republican.
U.S. President Donald Trump and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey met Tuesday after the president unleashed a tirade against the social media platform.
Trump did not specify what they discussed during their closed-door Oval Office meeting other than saying they addressed "lots of subjects" regarding Twitter and social media more broadly.
He did not elaborate but just hours earlier struck a much harsher tone, unleashing a tweet storm against the microblogging website that alleged it is biased against conservatives.
"They don't treat me well as a Republican," Trump lamented of Twitter. "Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people."
It is unclear what list Trump was suggesting Twitter is "taking people" off of, but he and other conservatives have claimed the microblogging website censors them.
Trump has suggested that government regulation of the platform may be necessary, hinting at such a measure by saying in his morning series of tweets that it is "No wonder Congress wants to get involved - and they should."
"Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD!" Trump said.
Twitter has adamantly denied it is biased.
Tuesday's meeting was first confirmed by Vice magazine's Motherboard website.
