Twitter censures a tweet from US President Donald Trump, accusing him of violating his own standards for ‘exalting violence’. Speaking of the riots over the killing of African American George Floyd, the president wrote: “I can’t stand here and watch what’s going on in a big American city, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Or the very weak left-wing mayor. Jacob Frey makes a move, or I’ll send the National Guard to do the work it needs. ” However, the tweet remains visible.

The presidential tweet went on in a second part: “… these TOYS are dishonoring the memory of Goerge Floyd, and I will not allow that to happen. I just spoke with Governor Tim Walz and told him that the armed forces are totally with If there are difficulties, we will take control, but when the looting starts, we start shooting. Thanks! “. “This tweet violates Twitter’s rules on the exaltation of violence – wrote the social network on Trump’s page – But Twitter has established that it is in the public interest that it remains accessible”. The censorship occurs after two of the president’s tweets have been reported as Twitter’s ‘fact-checking’ content in the past week, sparking the wrath of Trump and many of his supporters. In response, the president had signed an order that aims to strip the major social networks of legal immunity for what their users write.
