Twitter should not delete Trump’s account, says Croatian MP

While Croatia felt another strong earthquake on Sunday, independent MP of the parliamentary faction of the right-wing Most Party, Maria Selak Raspudić said “whatever you think about Trump’s presidency and his indirect connection with the attacks on the US Congress, […] Facebook and Twitter censorship, more precisely the permanent deletion of his profile due to recent events, is something we all need to think deeply about,” EURACTIV’s partner, Jutarnji.hr, reported.

“Following this, the basic dilemma becomes clearer than ever: Are Facebook and Twitter as the most famous only neutral platforms or media that conduct and edit political messages?” asked Raspudić.

“Therefore, the owners of the most popular social networks do not witness a democracy in whose name they restrict Trump’s freedom of speech, but, on the contrary, it goes to the advantage of Trump’s supporters who grow on the wings of “fake media” censorship. Therefore, when there is a new escalation of violence, then who should we point the finger at?” she added.
