honest question for 'General Discussion': did Trump violate the Twitter TOS?

https://support.twitter.com/articles/18311

Abusive Behavior
We believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another userís voice.

Any accounts and related accounts engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension.

Violent threats (direct or indirect):

You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.

Harassment:
You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include:
--if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others;
--if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats;
--if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and
--if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.

5. My response is this: What are you going to DO about it? You're talking. Now what?

Is there an "alert abuse" option? Are you availing yourself of it? Are you starting a petition? What?

15. I did report that account to twitter.

I want to know if I am alone in thinking that he is abusing the TOS.

16. Good for you. Now, do you want to lead a revolt against the Twit in Chief over there?

Go to it. I can't because I refuse to tweet.

17. I am not sure how to respond to this.

Evidently, what I want doesn't matter to you, nor does my OP.

It appears (based on your respose) you are not on twitter at all.

Why would you respond to me at all WRT my OP?

3. This kind of president is not bound by such rules and regulations

We already knew as much from what Newt said about nepotism.

4. When it comes to his behavior, I agree.

and I cannot stand it --

That said, Twitter has a TOS.


They should hold everyone to that TOS, regardless of who they are.

7. Well, yes, they should

But I think the point is that they wouldn't dare. He and his supporters could cause them unimaginable damage.

6. Twitter apparently found there to be NO VIOLATION...FFS

This is a link to their response.

https://mobile.twitter.com/davitydave/status/881570102662930432/photo/1


I hope the link works.... basically just the form letter from Twitter stating that the post had been reviewed & no violations were found.

14. They are normalizing his behavior.

Maybe they will take it seriously when a reporter gets killed because of Trump's hateful rhetoric.

10. Twitter is a corporation.

Stock has went up since September, 2016. Basically, because of Trump.

They make the rules, and can break the rules.

I wish he, and all of Twitter, would go away; but that won't happen until something better comes along.

12. Absolutely he incited violence.

Between this and what the NRA posted this week, the Trump cabal has essentially declared open season on liberals.
