Donald Trump meets Twitter's Jack Dorsey at White House

US President Donald Trump has met Twitter's co-founder Jack Dorsey at the White House to discuss social media.

In a statement, Twitter said the pair spoke about "protecting the health of the public conversation" ahead of the US 2020 general election.

Earlier Mr Trump had accused the platform of being "very discriminatory" towards him.

Mr Trump tweeted a picture of Mr Dorsey and him in the Oval Office and called it a "great meeting".

"Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general," he wrote.

The company has consistently denied accusations of bias, and said fluctuations in Mr Trump's follower numbers result from purges of suspected bots.

Mr Trump - a famously prolific Twitter user - has about 60 million followers.

He has used the platform in the past to launch scathing attacks on journalists, politicians and foreign nations, drawing intense criticism.

Mr Trump tweeted a video of Democratic congresswoman https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48033037Ilhan Omar in April which she said led to a rise in threats against her life.
