Twitter: Trump's tweets about Minnesota violate the no violence rule

According to foreign media reports, twitter said,A tweet by President trump threatening to "shoot" protesters involved in the Minneapolis riots violates the company's rules against "glorifying violence.".The company said it decided to keep the tweet visible in the public interest. The move has heightened tensions between twitter and trump because the company has the right to label or restrict his comments, which in turn gives the president the right to make rules for a private company.


"This tweet violates Twitter rules about glorifying violence ," the company said.

Twitter told Axios, the decision to label Trump's tweets was made by Twitter internal team. CEO Jack Dorsey was told about the plan before the tweets were labeled.

Trump previously signed an executive order to try to limit the legal protection of social media sites, including twitter. A large number of civil rights groups, business organizations, technology lobbies and politicians criticized Trump's move, saying he shouldn't - and legally can't - regulate how twitter deals with speech.


Twitter announced a policy a year ago that in most cases it would mark tweets of political leaders who violated its rules, but would not delete them. This week, for the first time, the company tagged one of Trump's tweets, marking two election related tweets as potentially misleading, and leading readers to twitter moments discussing the reality of postal voting.

Friday's move, however, was more forceful. To view this Minnesota tweet, users must click on the alert, not just attach a small note to the election related tweet, pointing to fact checking.
