The United States President Donald Trump’s Administration has renewed its charges of political preference among social media and search engines by introducing a survey that encourages users to report ‘online censorship’.
The online survey reads, “SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies.”
It urges to reply to contact details along with data about instances in which they believe they were ‘censored’ online.
The survey further claims, “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.”
President Trump has also made heavy usage of Twitter both in 2016 US Presidential Election campaign and during his tenure in office.
However, the US President has repeatedly denounced “collusion” between his political opponents and tech giants at one point alleged Google for influencing engine results to favor negative news coverage about him.
Trump’s political allies have also supported his allegations while offers little proof of bias. Search engine and social media companies have denied all the charges.
