Trump launches tool to submit suspicions of "political bias" on social media



The administration of President Trump has set up a tool Wednesday to highlight social media accounts likely to be subject to unfair censorship due to "political partiality".

The administration is fighting for freedom of expression online, tweeted Wednesday the White House. "No matter what your point of view, if you think that political prejudices have caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!"

This decision follows months of fighting between Trump and social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and Google. Trump has repeatedly accused these platforms of censorship of conservative voices, which companies vehemently denied. The president even threatened to regulate the platforms through government intervention.

Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in April after claiming he had lost followers on Twitter, which the president had attributed to political bias.

The president convened the meeting with Dorsey to discuss, among other things, "protecting the health of the public conversation in anticipation of the 2020 US elections," Twitter said in a statement.

"Social media platforms should advance freedom of expression," says the tool. "Yet, too many Americans have had their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear" violations "of users' policies, regardless of your point of view, if you think that political parties have provoked such an action against you, share your story with the president.
