President Trump and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey met on Tuesday — hours after the commander-in-chief accused the platform of censoring him and other Republicans.
“Great meeting this afternoon at the @WhiteHouse with @Jack from @Twitter. Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general,” Trump tweeted, along with a photo taken inside the Oval Office.
“Look forward to keeping an open dialogue!”
Among the topics broached was “the health of the public conversation” on the social media site, Motherboard reported, citing internal Twitter emails.
The White House invited Dorsey and other Twitter execs to the 30-minute closed-door sit-down, the site said.
The meeting comes after Trump, in a series of early morning tweets, repeated his gripes that Twitter was “playing political games” and discriminating against him and the GOP.
Dorsey wrote in the email thread that he believes “conversation, not silence, bridges gaps and drives towards solutions,” the Web site said.
“I have met with every world leader who has extended an invitation to me, and I believe the discussions have been productive, and the outcomes meaningful,” he wrote.
The Twitter boss said he anticipated some of his staff wouldn’t be happy about the meeting but wrote: “In the end, I believe it’s important to meet heads of state in order to listen, share our principles and our ideas.”
Trump hosted a gathering of tech titans at Trump Tower in 2016, but Dorsey wasn’t invited.
