For four years, Trump used social media to spread hate, disinformation, and undermine our democracy. After years of organizing for platform accountability by Team MediaJustice and our allies, tech companies are finally starting to listen. With mere days before his presidency is set to end, Twitter Inc. permanently suspended the account of Donald Trump on Friday due to the risk of further incitement of violence. It’s a great start, but not nearly enough. MediaJustice Executive Director Steven Renedros explains in MarketWatch.
“In many ways, this move is a day late and a dollar short. But it’s about protecting democracy and the U.S. from further harm.”Steven Renderos via MarketWatch
