Twitter flags Trump tweet for ‘glorifying violence’ as row escalates - CityAM

Twitter flags Trump tweet for ‘glorifying violence’ as row escalates. Twitter today said that one of Donald Trump’s tweets had broken its rules about “glorifying violence”, marking the latest salvo in an escalating feud between social media firms and the US president. “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” Trump tweeted, in reference to protests over the death of an unarmed black man in police custody in Minneapolis. “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 wrote.
