Trump targets Twitter, other social media outlets in controversial executive order

An executive order has been signed that could allow the feds to target tech giants like Twitter, Facebook and Google on how content appears on their website.

It comes after the President has issued thousands of statements that have been proven false via his Twitter account.  Trump has been on a tantrum in the past week since Twitter becan issueing statmetns connected to his claims that voter fraud can occur through mail in ballots.

Social Media is a forum outlet utilizing private company server to broadcast uncensored messages throughout the world.  Trump used Twitter to reboot the failing platform during the 2016 Presidential Election.  This is the first time Twitter has stood up to his abuse of their system in spreading propaganda to aid his own campaign.

Prior to the Presidential Campaign, the social media giant was having problems attracting new users, advertisers and innovating new products.  There are now over 330 million active users worldwide on the site, according to Twitter. At least 63% of those users fall between the ages of 35 and 65 years old.

Just like laws, executive orders are subject to legal review, and can be determined to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court or lower federal courts can nullify, or cancel.
