Twitter Shares Statement on Why Trump Still Hasn't Been Banned

06 January 2018

"Twitter is here to serve and help advance the global, public conversation". And Dorsey has said in the past that Twitter has bigger considerations in mind when policing the tweets of world leaders.

Twitter made the statement after a swell of outrage over Trump's tweets this week, in which he boasted that he had a "nuclear button" that was "much bigger" and "more powerful" than North Korea's, denounced his former strategist Stephen K. Bannon and derided the mainstream media.

But Twitter reiterated its stance, saying: "Elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation due to their outsized impact on our society".

Protesters went after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Tuesday night using a projected message on the side of Twitter's main headquarters in San Francisco.

You might, for example, tell Alexa to set the microwave for 3 minutes or ask Alexa to preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Instead of pressing multiple buttons to enable advanced microwave features, users can simply use their voices.

The company's response comes after President Trump posted a tweet about North Korea, which led to calls for him to be banished from the site.

It was a response to Kim's New Year's speech in which the young leader warned the United States that he has a nuclear button on his desk at all times. "It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions", the company said in a blog post Friday.

"It explained that "@jack breaks the rules of his own company, Twitter, to amplify a madman and endanger the world".

Some even argue that Trump's Twitter threats are an exercise in nuclear deterrence and can be categorized more as bizarrely articulated military policy than the kind of tweet that might violate Twitter's rules banning "specific threats of violence".

"No one person's account drives Twitter's growth, or influences these decisions", Twitter said.

"It's a running joke [in the West Wing] that nuclear war could start from the private residence during Fox [News] primetime", one senior Trump aide told The Daily Beast.

The comments prompted complaints that Twitter was providing Mr Trump with a "bully pulpit" and the president contravened its terms and conditions that addressed violence and threats.
