US President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused social media platforms Facebook , YouTube and Twitter of favouring his Democratic opponents over him and his fellow Republicans .
“ But fear not, we will win anyway , just like we did before ! # MAGA .
“ MAGA refers to Trump ’ s 2016 campaign slogan , Make America Great Again, ” he said in a tweet .
Facebook Inc and Twitter Inc declined to comment , while Alphabet Inc ’ s Google , which owns YouTube, did not immediately comment .
The president and other conservatives have repeatedly complained that these big tech platforms treat them unfairly .
Trump has previously accused Twitter of restricting the visibility of prominent US Republicans , without any providing evidence, and the avid social media user has promised to investigate the company ’ s practices .
Trump and other conservatives say Twitter targets fellow Republicans with a practice dubbed “ shadow banning , ” limiting the visibility of a Twitter user, including in the platform’ s auto – populated dropdown search box.
According to court documents , Representative Devin Nunes of California has sued Twitter over the alleged practice .
Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey has said that algorithms have been changed to fix that issue.
The Justice Department held a meeting last fall between federal officials and state attorneys general to discuss allegations that conservative ideas are suppressed online, however, so far no concrete action has been taken as a result
