Twitter adds unprecedented warning to Trump tweet threatening to shoot Minneapolis protesters

‘This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence,’ message reads Andrew Griffin @_andrew_griffin


Twitter has added an unprecedented warning to a Trump tweet, warning users that the post “glorifies violence”.

The message was added to a post in which Mr Trump seemed to threaten that people protesting against the death of an unarmed black man in custody could be shot.

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

The decision comes as Mr Trump signed a new executive order on social networks. Mr Trump’s announcement that social media companies would be more strictly regulated came after Twitter placed a different warning on another of his posts, which fact-checked the claim that mail-in voting would lead to widespread fraud.

  1. Well from Tubularsock’s point of view ….. if you’re not willing to burn it down you haven’t awakened to the immensity of the problem. NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!

    Just how many of these stories do we have to witness and NEVER any change? A cop murdering a man RIGHT IN FRONT of you!

    If anyone is under the impression that anything changes in the fairness of justice by some “peaceful”, “civil” protest of good citizens you are fucking delusional.

    And if Tubularsock hears all that shit from Pence and the fucking Christians about “praying for the family” Tubularsock is going to take that fucking cross and shove it up Pence’s asshole crosswise!

    Oh, and have a nice day.


    • I’m inclined to agree with you, Tube. It tends to be upper middle class white kids who march up and down with signs and practice peaceful civil disobedience. When people get desperate enough, they riot. And with huge unemployment numbers and hunger due to the crashing economy, this kind of rioting and looting was probably inevitable.
