Twitter Censors President’s Tweet Again

“Twitter has once again censored the president of the United States by citing violations of the ‘Twitter Rules about abusive behavior.’ Earlier today, President Trump tweeted that violence, vandalism, and destruction would be met with the full force of the law if rioters came to Washington, D.C. to attempt their destructive behavior in the nation’s capital. ‘There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!’ Who would have known that a warning to criminals against their criminal behavior would violate Twitter’s rules? Anyone in their right mind would agree with the president that it’s time to put a stop to this chaos that is wreaking havoc all over the nation–but especially in the city that would put the nation’s leader in physical danger. Twitter issued the following statement: ‘We’ve placed a public interest notice on this Tweet for violating our policy against abusive behavior, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group.’ Last month, Twitter censored the president’s tweet when he warned that looters and criminals would be met with the full force of the law if city officials did not step up their game to stop the chaos in their cities. Twitter later acknowledged that the tweet did not violate any of the Twitter rules, but continued to censor him anyway.”
