Belgrade: Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has challenged Twitter to close his account. He has said that if Twitter has power, then like Donald Trump, close his account and show it. Let us tell you that Twitter had closed the account of former US President Donald Trump, citing the rules. Apart from this, several other social media platforms also took action against him.
'I don't want to be the second Trump' Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said, 'I can't wait for Twitter to close my account so that I can become another Trump in the world'. Indeed, Twitter defines state-affiliated media as outlets,Where states exercise control over content through financial resources, direct or indirect political pressure, and control over production and distribution. Vucic asked with whom should they cooperate, tycoons, thieves and criminals?. He further said that it is most common that they cooperate with the government.
Vucic keeps hold of the media The President said that the Twitter label is nothing but censorship. Vucic, a former ultranationalist, has kept a tight grip on Serbia's mass media since coming to power 10 years ago. Pro-government outlets, including State TV, are working to destroy the little free media left in Serbia. Their reasoning behind this is that they are controlled by corrupt opposition figures or Western embassies.
Congratulations for the Twitter Label Vucic congratulated all media organizations that have got a special Twitter label on their accounts, saying they are promoting freedom-loving ideas. In addition to Serbia, these labels also appear on several Twitter accounts around the world, including the US, China, France, Russia, Germany, Italy, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
Action was taken on Donald Trump Twitter took strong action against former US President Donald Trump and closed his account. In fact, after losing the presidential election, Trump's supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6. Trump was also heavily criticized for this incident. Apart from this, he had also made baseless claims of election rigging, after which the social media site took action against him and closed the account.
