Is Trump signing the executive order to try and control Twitter & other social media?

How can he control social media, if he's not one of the owners? Or does he just want to divide conquer and destroy these social media platforms?

    It's because of their being dictators and CONTROLLING the news there.. THE USA is a free country and FREEDOM OF SPEECH does not mean FREEDOM OF SPEECH BUT ONLY IF THEY SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE OR WANT THEM TO SAY.. THE CONSTITUTION says freedom of speech... IT DOES NOT SAY ONLY IF YOU THINK OR SAY CERTAIN THINGS THAT SOME BELIEVE IN..

      The 1st amendment has LIMITATIONS and RESTRICTIONS, numpty. Not ALL speech is protected, dense. You can`t just go around blathering whatever. You can be ARRESTED, charged and jailed for stupidly running your yap. Doofus.

    He doesn't understand the constitution or law. He believes being President superceeds the constitution. He is running the country like his business. Break the Law and then throw a dozen lawyers at the problem. Now the AG has turned into one of his personal lawyers. Since becoming President he has surrounded himself with criminals and corruption.

    • freedom FREEDOM of speech is in the constitution you mention.. IT MEANS FREEDOM for everyone... NOT JUST A CERTAIN FEW WHO say what you want to hear.. but everyone ideas and thoughts are to be free and not controlled/ censored by the ones who think different.

    He's just playing "tough guy" for his supporters.  Social media can simply ignore him - and since they no longer need to keep him happy, they can suspend his accounts for inflammatory speech.  For any meaningful control of social media, he'd need a bill to pass both houses of Congress - and that ain't gonna happen.  I think he's just shot himself in the foot.

      Twitter is his lifeline. He'd dry up like a raisen if he couldn't spend most of his day on Twitter. Trump is all bark no bite. Twitter could bury Trump

    Those "social media" platforms held themselves to be a platform where everyone can express their opinion. It turns out that many users held that opinions that differed from their opinion were insults, threats and hate postings. Instead of ignoring or debating, they complained and threatened to quit the platform if the owners didn’t make it a safe space for their opinions.

    I hope he keeps threatening Twitter's 1st amendment thinking it's gonna make them comply. Cause he's making himself their enemy and they're finally cracking down on him.

    If he does, Twitter should ban him.
