Twitter, the social media giant boasting 330 million users, has gone through a massive restructuring. They have named new executives, have deleted 6% of their total accounts due to spam, and have streamlined their entire business model. Investors are hopeful that the restructuring will help build up its image and become a more versatile social media tool.
However, Twitter is perhaps the most criticized social media. They have been accused of “shadow banning” political points of view. Controversial tweets have been fired out by highly influential people — Elon Musk and President Trump, to name just two — and people have blamed Twitter for allowing it. And the whole idea of “false news” infiltrating all of social media and perhaps swaying elections is constantly an issue for the media giant.
What should be done about Twitter? Extempers get to figure that out this week.
This week’s final round goes deep into Twitter. Other topics include the Mueller investigation, Zimbabwe’s election, the trade war with China, CBS’s Leslie Moonves, Jeff Bezos, and much more!
