Note the account will auto delete 30 days after deactivating. I encourage you to delete your account also, these companies need to pay heavily for these outrageous actions.

    The CEO of Twitter seemingly believes America is currently experiencing civil unrest comparable to the Arab Spring, a series of revolutionary protests, coups and civil wars in the Arab world a few years ago. While the social media company appears to be treading water after a rough past few months, which includes a number of high-level staff departures and a sinking valuation, Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey sees his platform’s influence in society remaining largely the same, if not growing. “A lot of the same patterns we’ve seen during the Iranian Green Revolution and the Arab Spring,” Dorsey said Wednesday at...

    The word on everyone’s lips in Washington now — in newsrooms and advocacy groups, in congressional offices and embassies — is “firehose.” As in the high-pressure stream of White House orders. The daily deluge of Donald Trump’s tweets blaming “so-called” judges for future terror attacks and assailing Nordstrom for dropping his daughter’s clothing line for poor sales. The tsunami of statements inflating the murder rate and hyping the terrorist threat, while aides mind-bendingly blame the media for not covering massacres in Bowling Green and Atlanta that never happened. With each new volley, drinking from the Trump firehose feels ever more...

    Because no president will ever again play by your rules Joe Scarborough tried last week to warn Donald Trump that there’s no way Trump can win a war with the media. The media will always have a bigger megaphone, Scarborough insisted, and if nothing else they can outlast and outtalk any president. This has been conventional media wisdom for decades. And it’s wrong. Trump has already won his war with the media, no matter how his presidency goes. Even if his presidency goes badly and he’s constantly under siege by the media - to the point where his approval ratings...

    President Donald Trump was given control over the POTUS Twitter handle on inauguration day, but has chosen to continue tweeting from his personal account. When I noticed how transparent he was being with his tweets, I decided to enable alerts, so that I would be notified each time he sends a tweet. The first thing I noticed was that many others have enabled alerts as well, and always try to be one of the first to reply to the Presidents’ tweets. The second thing I noticed was that the vast majority of these tweets are very negative and very critical...

The tweets still exist, and you can access them by directly clicking the links in the tweets, but most people would not think...

    On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump may have unleashed his most bone-chilling tweet -- at least to those who believe the United States should not become a Trump-led dictatorship. And I don't make that comment simply to be provocative or without giving it a great deal of thought. Our democracy is far more fragile than some might grasp and Trump is engaging in a concerned effort to undermine the workings of it. Here is Trump's truly jaw-dropping tweet from Saturday morning: "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be...

    After decades in the spotlight supporting her parents’ political endeavors, Chelsea Clinton is speaking out on her own. While her parents spend their time under the radar, hiking and seeing Broadway shows, Chelsea has trained her fire on President Trump’s administration, using a method favored by the president himself: frequent, pointed tweets. Shortly after the inauguration, Clinton defended 10-year-old Barron Trump against a sudden onslaught of attention — but not without taking a swipe at his father: She made a sarcastic dig about the administration’s reported intention to repurpose a program countering all ideological violent extremism to one specifically...

    In the 12 days since Donald Trump took the oath of office, a steady stream of social media posts have called for the new president's assassination. The posts are pretty basic and many are jokes or sarcastic or hyperbolic — but there are a lot of them. In a Dataminr search of Twitter posts since Inauguration Day containing the phrase "assassinate Trump" more than 12,000 tweets came up. The U.S. Secret Service, however, or even Twitter and Facebook themselves, doesn't seem to be jumping onto many of these posts. When we asked several users about their recent "assassinate Trump" posts,...

Netanyahu said on Twitter earlier on Saturday: "President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel's southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea." The comment was swiftly rejected by leaders of the Jewish community in Mexico, and prompted an unusually blunt statement from Mexico's foreign ministry.

The first tweet about climate science came at 11:40 a.m. local time Tuesday. It said: “The pre-industrial concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was 280 parts per million (ppm). As of December 2016, 404.93 ppm.”

The original tweet, made by Binyamin Appelbaum, a New York Times correspondent, read, “Compare the crowds: 2009 inauguration at left, 2017 inauguration at right” and featured a biased split image of Obama’s 2009 Inauguration vs. Trump’s 2017 Inauguration.
