Mark it on your calendars everyone.
May 5th should be a pretty interesting day. Be sure to watch the stock before and after and see where the decision takes the company financially.
I know we would all like to see Twitter do the same thing as well, and allow President Trump back on, or at the very least consider it.
One thing is for certain; these sites aren’t NEARLY as interesting without President Trump on there!
Here is what people are saying:
The Epoch Times came through with more details:
The content oversight board for Facebook and Instagram will announce its decision on May 5 regarding the ongoing suspension of former President Donald Trump.
The social media giant’s independent oversight board announced the timing of the decision in a brief Twitter message on May 3, saying the verdict will be made public at about 9 a.m. Eastern time on May 5.
The independent board, which purportedly has the power to overrule Facebook, said in mid-April that it had collected and was reviewing more than 9,000 comments from the public.
The board usually takes 90 days to review controversies, and its decision regarding Trump was expected in March. Five members of the board are reviewing the case, but their decision must be signed off by a majority of the board.
In mid-April, the board released a statement saying the decision was coming in “coming weeks” and noted that it had extended the public comments deadline for the case. The board said it received more than 9,000 responses.
The board's decision on whether to ban or reinstate Trump’s accounts could impact Facebook’s decisions on global political leaders down the road. The platform requested the board’s recommendation on suspension when the user is a political leader when it referred the case.
But although Facebook has committed to following all the board’s rulings in terms of content removal, it has not committed to implementing all policy recommendations related to the rulings.
