Guess Whose Name Comes Up First When Twitter Users Search For The Term 'Racist'?

The Twitter algorithm, it seems, has spoken.

Saturday, users noticed that President Donald Trump's account was recommended when they searched the term "racist" on the platform.

According to Business Insider, the president recently put forth an executive order to increase regulation faced by social media companies, including Twitter.

Trump's move came after Twitter placed a fact-checking label over his tweet.

It later labeled another one of his tweets for violating its rules about violence.
