UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The White House launched a service in which users can complain about the unfair deletion of their posts or blocking accounts in social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Users of social networks whose posts are unfairly deleted or accounts are blocked can complain about this in the new service of the White House. This was reported by The Verge. “Too many Americans are faced with the fact that their accounts have been blocked or posts deleted by false reports in violation of the policy of [social networks],” – quoted the resource words of US President Donald Trump.
The collection of complaints is organized on the Typeform platform, where users are invited to add screenshots and links to deleted posts. Also added a field where you can explain the actions taken against them by social networks.
The user is invited to choose between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and other platforms. At the end of the survey, it is separately asked whether the American is complaining.
In recent months, Republicans have complained that social networks have mistakenly censored conservatives. Trump himself also pointed to the unequal treatment of the American Internet community and media towards Republicans and Democrats.
Hearings about this were held in the US House of Representatives Committee on Judicial Issues with the participation of representatives of Twitter and Facebook. And the leaders of social networks were questioned about the removal of posts of a conservative orientation at the hearings in the Senate.
The Verge notes that only two Democrats were present at these hearings. In April, President Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Later it became known that Trump gave half an hour of conversation a sharp decrease in the number of his subscribers.
A Twitter spokesman assured The Verge that the microblogging network has improved the rules for equal treatment of users, regardless of their political affiliation. Facebook, Google, and YouTube did not respond to the request.
Great meeting this afternoon at the @WhiteHouse with @Jack from @Twitter. Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue! pic.twitter.com/QnZi579eFb
