Twitter May Flag President Trump’s Tweets That Violate ‘Rules’

A Twitter executive said Wednesday that the social media company may begin to flag ‘offensive’ tweets from politicians, including President Trump, when they violate the ‘terms of service.’

Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s head of legal, policy, and trust and safety, said that the reason why the company may begin labeling tweets from politicians ‘offensive’ is to explain why the tweet will remain posted, reported The Hill.

“One of the things we’re working really closely on with our product and engineering folks is, ‘How can we label that?’” Gadde said during the Washington Post event. “How can we put some context around it so people are aware that that content is actually a violation of our rules and it is serving a particular purpose in remaining on the platform?”

“When we leave that content on the platform there’s no context around that and it just lives on Twitter and people can see it and they just assume that is the type of content or behavior that’s allowed by our rules,” Gadde said.

 

Vijaya Gadde was responding to a question about whether President Trump is allowed to tweet whatever he wants.

“When we leave that content on the platform there’s no context around that and it just lives on Twitter and people can see it and they just assume that is the type of content or behavior that’s allowed by our rules,” Gadde said.

Twitter has stated that tweets from politicians and members of government are held to a different standard in what they call their ‘newsworthy clause.’

Tweets from politicians that violate the terms of service are not removed because of the newsworthiness, however, Twitter is now looking to ‘label’ and publicly scold Trump if he dares say anything that the Marxists at Twitter don’t like.


Of course these ‘rules’ only apply to conservatives — leftists can tweet whatever they want without fear of reprisal.

Meanwhile, the worthless Republicans in Congress sit back and do nothing while tech giants impose their tyranny onto Americans.
