Is Trump’s removal a case of too little, too late and a cynical ploy now the President is on the way out and can’t rain vengeance upon Twitter, Instagram and Facebook?
People have also argued that long before social media, presidents relied on different forms of communications like the press or “ Fake News” as Trump calls it, TV and radio and Trump’s free speech hasn’t been compromised.
Trump’s social media suspension does kick up issues of freedom of speech and cancel culture.
Whilst we are unsure of how permanent President Trump’s ban will be, it does raise other interesting ethical questions, which has people on social media divided.
Whenever we cancel people or their concerns, the far right, fascists and chancers like Trump will only be too happy to twist their genuine concerns into something hateful.
