American President Donald Trump has protested his declining Twitter following with Jack Dorsey, Chief Executive officer of Twitter in a meeting, as stated by a source to media. On Tuesday, Trump met Dorsey and questioned him about why he has lost some Twitter followers.

The meeting between Jack Dorsey and President Donald Trump was organized in the White House, hours after Trump had slashed the social media site of being biased against 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.

Dorsey, who had not previously met with Trump, replied in a tweet: “Thank you for the time. Twitter is here to serve the entire public conversation, and we intend to make it healthier and more civil. Thanks for the discussion about that.”

“A significant portion of the meeting focused on Trump’s concerns that Twitter quietly, and deliberately, had removed some of his followers, according to a person with direct knowledge of the conversation who requested anonymity because it was private,” reports The Post’s Tony Romm. “Trump said he had heard from fellow conservatives who had lost followers as well.”

The source also briefed that Dorsey had assured President Trump that the company is working on his concerns of lost followers and that he had explained to him that the company regularly removes fraudulent and spam accounts as part of security protocols and that many famous people, including Dorsey himself, had lost followers as a result.

Earlier, on Tuesday Trump has complained on Twitter that the company does not “treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory.”

President Trump is frustrated over losing 204,000 followers since July, that makes up 0.4% of his total of 53.4 million Twitter followers.

Trump raised the same concerns back in October as well. He stated, “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?”
