Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “White House posts call for social media censorship stories, triggering hope & cynicism”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!” the White House tweeted with a link to a form where users could fill in the details of their persecution at the hands of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, or “other.”

Of the named platforms, only Twitter had anything to say about the administration’s call for stories, responding that it enforces its terms of service “impartially” without regard to “background or political affiliation.” President Donald Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey last month at the White House just hours after complaining (via Twitter) that the platform didn’t “treat [him] well as a Republican,” and Dorsey has admitted in the past that they’ve been “too aggressive” in banning right-wing users, but many complain that nothing has changed. 

Many Trump supporters saw the call for stories as the answer to their prayers, almost a year after first Alex Jones and then hundreds more non-mainstream users were deplatformed.

Trump is coming through on his campaign promises AND now defending our freedom of speech in an unprecedented way! This is phenomenally exciting!
