Week In Review: How Trump's Policies Moved Stocks - Saturday, May 30

Twitted added, "We've taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the Tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance. As is standard with this notice, engagements with the Tweet will be limited. People will be able to Retweet with Comment, but will not be able to Like, Reply or Retweet it."

PRIVATE COMPANIES NOT 'ARBITERS OF TRUTH'

 Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has called out Twitter for fact checking a tweet from President Trump, telling Fox News' Dana Perino that privately-owned digital platforms should not act as the "arbiter of truth." "We have a different policy than, I think, Twitter on this," Zuckerberg told "The Daily Briefing" in an interview. "I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn't be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online," he added. "Private companies probably shouldn't be, especially these platform companies, shouldn't be in the position of doing that."

Meanwhile, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended the platform's decision to fact check and place warnings on two of President Trump's tweets this week. Dorsey said via Twitter that, "Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that's me. Please leave our employees out of this. We'll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make. This does not make us an 'arbiter of truth.' Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions."
