Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg criticises Twitter for fact-checking Donald Trump

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has waded into the spat between President Trump and Twitter. Speaking to Fox News in the US, Zuckerberg criticised Twitter for deciding to add fact-checking warnings to President Trump’s tweets. The move sparked retaliation from the President who appears to be preparing an executive order targeting social media companies. And according to Zuckerberg, it’s not the place of private companies to interfere with what people post online. In his interview with Fox, Facebook’s Zuckerberg said that it was not the place of the company to act as an ‘arbiter of truth’. ‘We have a different policy than, I think, Twitter on this,’ he said. ‘I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,’ he added. ‘Private companies probably shouldn’t be, especially these platform companies, shouldn’t be in the position of doing that.’
