Twitter clarifies Why it won’t Ban Donald Trump

The Nuclear Disturbance between North Korea and United States has been a hot subject of news. In response to the nuclear tests of North Korea, the United Nations Security Council approved strong new sanctions against the country. But the issue is not over.


During the annual New Year’s Day address, Kim mentioned the existence of a nuclear button on his desk capable of hitting the United States. “This is reality, not a threat,” Kim said.


On 2 January, in response, Trump tweeted a boastful statement.”North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”


Twitter’s Policy says, “You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism. Offending accounts found violating these rules will be permanently suspended from the platform”.


For violating the site’s terms of service of Twitter again and again, nearly 72,000 people have signed an online appeal asking for prohibition of Trump for violating Twitter’s policy by making violent threats.


But Twitter is not going to be Trump free. In effect of the lot of discussion regarding Trump’s violence of Twitter Policy, Twitter shared its position on its official blog in a post “World Leaders on Twitter” on 5 January as,

“Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.”


Twitter Response


Twitter’s response to Trump’s violence issue has provoked severe reaction in people accusing Jack Dorsey, the CEO, of being collusive in Trump’s conduct.
