Twitter's feud with President Donald Trump escalated Friday after the social media platform accused one of his tweets of 'glorifying violence'
The White House leaped on the incongruity Friday evening as vindication for the president's charge that online companies don't play fair with conservatives.
But a Twitter spokesperson told POLITICO that the company stands by its ruling against Trump's tweet, in which the president railed against unrest in Minnesota and remarked that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Twitter slapped a
warning labelon the tweet after it appeared on Trump's personal account, and later did the same thing to a tweet from the White House's official account that cited his words verbatim.The spokesperson said the automated email came in response to a specific complaint in which someone had accused the official White House account of violating a subset of Twitter’s rules — not necessarily regarding its policies on violent content. The email does not make clear what rule the complainant had cited.
The spokesperson said the company is required by law under certain jurisdictions, such as Germany, to alert users when Twitter has received and reviewed certain complaints against their accounts. Read more: POLITICO »

Хоть здесь говорят правду Wrong people are censoring Trump. Congress ought to do it. We are out work, 100,000 people dead, cities in flames and the 'Law and Order President' is sitting in his silk boxer shorts Tweeting death threats and made-up murder accusations. Make the A••hole Go Away (MAGA) Take a step back and look at your life closely and ask yourself 'What can you improve? Overcome the fear of change
Twitter is either lying to Trump or lying to us. Twitter is a bunch of Brad's and Chad's that tuck it every morning and chug soy milk for fun.

Twitter is just giving trump a taste of his own medicine: doing one thing and saying another, throwing gasoline on Trump’s burning anger at them. He’ll tweet more stupid crap and eventually, Twitter will suspend his account. And I will be: What does your Twitter allow itself to do? It works poorly, doesn’t download tweets and comments, doesn’t show answers, does NOT allow complaining about it..See for yourself. Help me please!

White House press secretary criticizes Twitter for singling out Trump instead of fact-checking Chinese propagandaWhite House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany pushed back against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's request that people 'leave employees' out of the fact-checking debate, saying the White House would continue to question the people on the team. Spot on Kayleigh! Twitter is Chinese propaganda. The only fool who believes China is trump. He believed them over our intel on covid. The rest of us who have critical thinking skills do not think China is a legit source for any info.

White House retweets Trump tweet restricted by Twitter for 'glorifying violence'The social media platform did not remove Trump's post, choosing instead to block users from liking, replying to or sharing the message. What a damn fool. He has lost 100,000 citizens during this pandemic. A real leader would be more concerned about his citizens and other pressing matters. But, he has left the people on our own - including 41 million who have lost their jobs. He's the leader of a failed state.
