Donald Trump has faced hostile coverage by many in the media, but is Trump now being wrongly labeled by Twitter’s search?
Since his swearing in, searching Twitter for the words, “a**hole,” “racist,” and “bigot” will make Donald Trump appear as the first result to the search.
Ann Coulter also appears whenever the term “racist” is searched.
Of course there is an extremely logical explanation to this. One might say Twitter uses algorithms, basically grouping terms or in this case, people, that have been tweeted many times next to the selected phrase in the search box. So if Trump was mentioned in enough posts that contained the words “a**hole,” “racist,” or “bigot,” then he might show up whenever those few terms are searched.
The only problem with this train of thought is that all the other accounts that show up when you search “a**hole,” “bigot,” or “racist,” have those words either in their name, or somewhere in their bio.
