Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey met with President Donald Trump at the White House on April 23 to discuss Trump’s concerns that the social media monopoly is censoring and mass-banning conservatives.
There is a mountain of anecdotal and statistical evidence proving the conservative viewpoints are being suppressed and censored.

Republicans Demand That Twitter Be Regulated
Despite the cheery optics of the long-awaited meeting, Twitter’s suppression of conservatives will continue because the left-wing Dorsey has no incentive to do otherwise.
Twitter is not currently regulated, even though it’s essentially a monopoly. However, Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Marsha Blackburn have recently called for the platform to be regulated because of the unfettered power it wields to shape public dialogue.
It is probably because of these mounting calls for regulation that Dorsey finally met with President Trump, since Trump has previously trashed Twitter for its bias.
Jack Pays Lip Service to Being Open While Censoring the Right
Trump tweeted about the meeting, along with a photo of a haggard and scruffy-looking Dorsey in the Oval House (see above).
The president wrote: “Great meeting this afternoon at the White House 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!”
Dorsey responded by saying: “Thank you for the time. Twitter is here to serve the entire public conversation, and we intend to make it healthier and more civil. Thanks for the discussion about that.”

Twitter has been repeatedly slammed by conservative media for its liberal bias — which Jack admits the platform has.
The evidence for this is overwhelming, especially if you look at the long list of conservatives the platform has banned over the years.
In contrast, Twitter rarely takes punitive measures against a liberal user who attacks a conservative.
In the tweet below, a Twitter user calls Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens — who’s black — a “n***er.”
Despite numerous complaints filed against the user, Twitter has not removed the racist tweet.
Just curious as to what Twitter’s policy is for hate speech and more importantly— blue check mark verification.

Internet: Jack Dorsey Is Manorexic
Maybe Jack Dorsey’s starvation diet is impairing his judgment.
As HVY reported, Dorsey has fueled rumors that he’s suffering from the eating disorder anorexia after admitting that he eats only one meal a day and fasts on the weekends.
Basically, he starves from Friday until Sunday night, consuming only water during that time.
“I’ll go from Friday until Sunday,” Jack says. “And the first time I’ll eat will be Sunday evening. The first time I did it, like Day 3, I felt like I was hallucinating. It was a weird state to be in”
Jack Dorsey's austere low-carb, low-calorie diet fuels speculation that the Twitter billionaire has manorexia.
“No wonder this guy looks like he’s near death. He has an eating disorder, and it’s a shame that he promotes it as a normal thing.”https://t.co/TnlGTL06G8
