As president of the United States, trump enjoys special treatment when he violates Twitter's rules on offensive or misleading content. But if he fails in this election, his immunity will end in January.Twitter treats world leaders' violations differently than it does to ordinary users. Twitter often retains leaders' tweets, which are illegal and labeled with warnings, but does not force them to delete tweets.
Twitter believes that people should listen to world leaders, even if they share controversial content, because the news they post is newsworthy. But if trump loses the election, he will become a "former" world leader, no longer protected by this policy. Twitter, for example, treats former U.S. President Barack Obama's illegal tweets just as it treats ordinary users.
Trump has used Twitter as his voice since he was elected president. But from Tuesday morning, Twitter has stepped up the verification of Trump tweets. According to the New York Times, Twitter marked 39 percent of Trump's 29 tweets and tweets and posted warnings that they could be misleading about the election process.
