Washington, D.C. – The White House is publishing this email that was received from Twitter. It’s so absurd, the White House had to share it with the public.
This morning, the White House Twitter account reposted text from a tweet sent by President Donald Trump. A short time later, Twitter censored the tweet, claiming it violated Twitter Rules about “glorifying violence.”
That is completely false.
As the President just explained again, his tweet was CONDEMNING violence and pledging federal support to keep Minnesotans safe.
The email we just received, presumably sent by a different team within Twitter, admits that the very tweet they are censoring does not violate any Twitter Rules.
Yet the tweet is still censored.
Twitter’s own staff just made this much clear: Twitter is a publisher with an editorial viewpoint, NOT a platform.
