President Donald Trump has had his bones to pick with social media, but he is also the Tweeter-in-Chief, and took the opportunity Tuesday (April 23) to Tweet about his meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, suggesting he was willing to keep an open mind about an edge he has targeted with cutting criticism.

Dorsey was among the tech CEO's who testified on the Hill last year as D.C., drilled down on issues of edge giant power, data sharing, election meddling and more.

The President has accused edge providers, including Twitter in particular because he is a frequent user, of a bias against conservatives. "I have many, many followers on Twitter and it's different than it used to be," he said. "Things are happening. Names are taken off. People aren't getting through," he told Daily Caller last month. "It seems to be if they are conservative, if they're Republicans, if they are a certain group, there's discrimination. I see it absolutely on Twitter, and Facebook and others," though he said he focused on "the one platform [Twitter]."

The President used Twitter throughout special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling to attack the investigation, investigators, and witnesses.
