Everyone is pretty grossed out by a Twitter executive desperately wooing Trump
President Donald Trump loves Twitter. But does Twitter, the company, love Trump?
Twitter Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer Anthony Noto tweeted a suggestion to Trump Friday morning that led to scrutiny from the Twitter-verse. Trump threatened (on Twitter, of course) to stop holding press briefings, leading to Noto’s suggestions that he take the briefings to Twitter.
Criticism over Noto’s suggestion to put press conferences on Twitter, instead of television, came from big names like retired Silicon Valley investor Chris Sacca and YouTube legend Hank Green.
…Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future “press briefings” and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
