TECH Twitter flags Trump tweet on Minneapolis for 'glorifying violence'

Source: CNBC

Twitter has slapped a “public interest notice” on a tweet from President Donald Trump, saying it violated its rules regarding the glorifying of violence.

“We’ve taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the Tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance,” the company said Friday morning.

1. In Firefox for me, it gives the warning instead of the tweet, have to click view to see it!

That will be noticed!

5. instead of flagging Trump's vile spewing

I would prefer an unambiguous statement of fact...stop with the "misstatement/misleading/not truthful" crap...call Trump's verbal diarrhea a lie..he lying and that's a fact...

4. Can't wait for the Trumper Tantrum

I think Twitter is taking the best approach.
Don't delete his account or tweets. Just label them with fact checks and public warnings.

Mainly to drive Trump nuts.

8. I agree that what Twitter is doing

is probably the best approach. Just keep fact-checking his tweets and flag them if necessary when he calls for violence or spews disinformation.

9. Anyone within a mile of the Orange Choad in the morning when he wakes up, might want

to grab an umbrella. Trump is going to have a conniption fit like none the world has ever seen and his head is going to finally explode.

I can't wait.

10. And that means the first view of the tweet you get is this warning message

This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence.
However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s
interest for the Tweet to remain accessible. Learn more

With a "View" link to the right that you have to click on to get the toddler's threats.

He will go ballistic. There will never have been such a presidential tantrum.

11. So, what exactly has IQ45 done himself to 'honor the memory' of Mr. Floyd, who he is now pretending

to care so deeply about?

Has he, I dunno, decried the murderous conduct of the police officers, by chance?

13. People can't like, reply, or retweet it without comment

though they can retweet with a comment:

In a thread, Twitter said it had taken the action “in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts”. People will still “be able to retweet with comment, but will not be able to like, reply or retweet it.”

14. The historical context:

Trump's phrase "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" is an unattributed quote of Walter Headley, Miami's police chief in 1967. It was a threat to citizens who were upset that police had terrorized a black teenager by holding him over a bridge

22. Winning poll to BAN the corona-orange dictatortot

Do you think Twitter should BAN Donald Trump?
YES 54.4%
NO 45.6%

?s=20




First reply to that poll:
Twitter fact checks two of his tweets after more than a decade of spewing racism, insanity and bullying and he threatens to shut down social media. Two tweets. If you don’t think this guy would be the most brutal dictator ever, you’re not paying attention. @realDonaldTrump

25. The impeached is using twitter for free

as a campaign platform. He is sullying their reputation and taking advantage of their neutrality. He is violating their terms of service. It's good to see they are starting to reject this and I hope it continues. Good on you twitter.

Twitter is the "Ministry of Truth" and we are living in a real life version of 1984

Except Twitter is not an arm of the government, and commented on the message instead of censoring it. The government has numerous ways to get their message to the public; Twitter has never been an official method and has terms of service.

You might want to read Orwell again.
