World leaders are proposing to condemn Twitter’s suspension of President Trump’s account. Many of them call it a thorough censorship system. This decision should be made by citizens rather than private technology companies.
Clement Beaune, France’s junior minister in charge of EU affairs, said he was shocked by the withdrawal of Trump’s account on social media platforms.
He told Bloomberg TV on Monday: “This should be decided by citizens, not by the CEO.” “But yes, I am shocked that it is now completely in private hands. It can’t just be in private hands. .”
Bohn said there should be a “public regulatory framework”
French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire (Bruno Le Maire) said that the responsibility for monitoring content should fall on the state.
Le Maire said: “The digital oligarchs themselves cannot complete the supervision of digital giants,” he added, adding that big technology is “one of the threats” to democracy.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador) said that this is a “bad signal” and social media has the right to censor Trump.
“I don’t like anyone being censored or deprived of the right to post on Twitter or Facebook. I don’t agree, I don’t agree.” Lopez Obrador at the press conference last Friday Said.
He said: “A review court like the Inquisition is responsible for managing public opinion: this is really serious.”
A spokesperson for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she thinks Twitter’s ban on Trump is “problematic”.
Spokesperson Steffen Seibert told reporters in Berlin on Monday: “This basic right can be interfered, but it must be carried out in accordance with the law and within the framework defined by the legislator, not based on the management of the social media platform. Decided.”
He said: “From this perspective, the prime minister thinks that the accounts of the president of the United States are now permanently frozen.” He added that the president should be able to express his opinions.
Acting Australian Prime Minister Michael McCormack said blocking Trump constitutes censorship.
According to the “Sydney Morning Herald” report, he questioned why Twitter failed to delete a fake photo that showed Australian soldiers beheading an Afghan child.
“I want to tell the owner of Twitter that if you want to delete comments about who is still the President of the United States, you also need to consider this photo, which is a tampered image that shows a soldier, said to be in the arms of an Australian excavator A child is about to hurt that child.” McCormack said. “That hasn’t been deleted yet, that’s wrong.”
After urging by The Post in November, Twitter has marked the image as “sensitive.”
Eduardo, the son of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, expressed similar concerns about Twitter’s treatment of Venezuelan authoritarian leader Nicolas Maduro.
Bolsonaro said on Twitter: “Maduro is on social media, but the world where Trump was suspended is abnormal.”
He changed his Twitter profile photo to Trump.
