United States President Donald Trump met with Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey at the White House on Wednesday.

Speaking on the meeting, White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway said the two “had a very productive conversation about keeping the media platforms open for 2020.”

“The president is very concerned about what he sees as losing followers or people being blocked for certain actions. That’s obvious,” she added.

Trump also shared a tweet about the meeting, saying “Great meeting this afternoon at the White House with Jack from Twitter. Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue!”

Herald Nigeria, however, learnt that Trump used to the meeting to question what he termed a “quiet and deliberate” removal of some of his followers. He added that other conservatives have had the same experience with losing followers.

But responding to Trump’s claims, Dorsey said that Twitter is making an effort to rid the website of fraudulent and spam accounts.
