Twitter Inc on Tuesday placed a warning notice on a tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump which threatened “Serious force” against protesters in the U.S. capital, saying it violated the company’s policy against abusive behavior.
“There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!” the president’s tweet read. The company said it had hidden Trump’s tweet behind its “Public interest” notice because there was a threat of harm against an identifiable group.
The company first attached its public interest notice to one of Trump’s tweets last month, when he used the phrase “When the looting starts, the shooting starts” to threaten deadly force against protesters in Minneapolis.
