Abstract

Shortly before sending out a series of racist tweets last weekend — comments that should, by Twitter’s own rules, have gotten a regular user exiled from the platform — President Trump hosted a social media summit at the White House. It was an event that found him once again repeating his frequent, and false, claim that conservatives are silenced on social media.
