Donald Trump complains of losing followers to Twitter: Report

Washington : US President Donald Trump met Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Tuesday asking him about the reasons why he is losing followers on the social media platform, a person briefed on the matter said.

The meeting was organised by the White House last week in wake of allegations posted by Donald Trump on the social media companies of being biased against the conservatives.

"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. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue!" Trump tweeted, posting a photo of Dorsey and others with him in the Oval Office.

Earlier on Tuesday, Donald Trump had alleged that the Twitter is biased against him without providing any evidence. He wrote on Twitter that the company does not "treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory."

Releasing a statement, Twitter said, "Dorsey had a constructive meeting with the president of the United States today at the president's invitation. They discussed Twitter's commitment to protecting the health of the public conversation ahead of the 2020 U.S. elections and efforts underway to respond to the opioid crisis."

In 2016, Donald Trump was left red faced when Twitter rejected an advertising deal related to his campaign. Currently, Trump is majorly upset because of his continuous losing followers.

In October, Trump wrote that "Twitter has removed many people from my account and, more importantly, they have seemingly done something that makes it much harder to join - they have stifled growth to a point where it is obvious to all. A few weeks ago it was a Rocket Ship, now it is a Blimp! Total Bias?"

Trump lost 204,000, or 0.4 percent, of his 53.4 million followers in July when Twitter started its purge of suspicious accounts, according to social media data firm Keyhole.
