Netflix has made a change in the US in response to President Donald Trump’s tweet, which claimed it was a “black hole” in the internet and “walls” of “fake news”.
The streaming service said on Twitter: “We are working hard to bring you the best content in the world to get you the most from your experience of the internet.”
However, as President Trump pointed out, we are a ‘black hole’ in the media world.
We need to make sure that our content is safe, fair and reliable for the people who rely on it to have access to the information they need to do their jobs.
“Mr Trump’s claims that he had “a total shutdown of the media” were made after a report by The Washington Post that the President had blocked Twitter in some US states.
He also blamed “fake” news outlets for spreading his tweets.”
I’ve been tweeting for 45 days, but you know what, I’ve been totally shutting down Twitter,” he told reporters in a news conference.”
It’s a fake news thing.
You know what?
I don’t care if it’s fake, I don (care), it’s a phony, fake media.
“They’re saying it’s the media.
I’m not going to listen to them.
You can’t do that.””
If you’re talking to fake media you’re going to get shut down.
You can’t do that.”
Netflix’s comments follow similar ones made by Facebook, Twitter and Google.
Facebook also blocked a number of US internet services, including Facebook Messenger and YouTube, in an effort to counter Mr Trump’s tweets.
Google has also said it will allow content from outside of the US to appear on its search results, in response the President’s claim that Google was a conduit for fake news.
“We’ve had some great partnerships, but I think this is a really important opportunity for people to understand how our technology works, and why it’s really important that we do everything we can to make this technology accessible to everyone,” Google’s general counsel Brad Smith said.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In a statement on its US website, the social network said: “As a result of President Trump’s false allegations about Google, we’ve now had to temporarily stop many of our features from being available to some people.
We will continue to make our work easier for people everywhere.”
