Trump Gets a “Time out”


 
Twitter gave President Trump a “time out.” His account was locked and he couldn’t tweet for 12 hours. @jack wanted some tweets deleted and, after Trump complied, Twitter reinstated his account.

Facebook, on the other hand, has suspended Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for a minimum of two weeks, but have threatened an indefinite period. Snapchat locked (but didn’t delete) Trump’s account.

Right or wrong? Why now? Why not two weeks ago? Or two years ago? Or after the first social post that incited hate and division?

I’m going to ask Carolyn Everson, Facebook’s VP Global Business Group, these and other hard questions at the Shelly Palmer Innovation Series Summit on January 12 at 11 a.m. EST. Get your calendar invite here.
