(Newser) – During President Trump's latest Twitter rampage early Tuesday, he accused the social media platform of being biased against conservatives. Within hours, he was praising Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after meeting with him personally. The details:

  • Trump's first tweets: "'The best thing ever to happen to Twitter is Donald Trump.' @MariaBartiromo So true, but they don’t treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names-over 100 M.....," he wrote, continuing, ".....But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games. No wonder Congress wants to get involved - and they should. Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD!"
