Twitter issues notice on Donald Trumps tweet warning against protesters

Twitter mentioned in a statement to AFP that the company took the action Tuesday because the tweet violated its policy against abusive behavior with "a threat of harm against an identifiable group".

Twitter users will be unable to retweet the offending tweet due to the measure, and will have to click through Twitter's warning to see the tweet.

Pressed on whether he was joking when he said at a campaign rally this weekend that he asked officials to slow down coronavirus testing, President Trump told reporters on Tuesday: "I don't kid".

Twitter on Tuesday reacted when Donald Trump tweeted about USA protesters and he threatened "serious force" against them in the American capital city. "If they try they will be met with serious force!" the president said in his tweet.

Twitter issues notice on Donald Trumps tweet warning against protesters

On Monday, thousands of protesters tried to topple the statue of a former US President Andrew Jackson near the White House as police responded with pepper spray to break up new demonstrations that erupted in Washington. It was also reported that they spray-painted "BHAZ", which stands for "Black House Autonomous Zone", on the columns of St. John's Church outside the White House.

Twitter has issued a public interest notice after US President said that the protesters attempting to set up an "autonomous zone" in Washington DC would be "met with serious force!". In the previous, the corporation hardly ever acted to implement its procedures on tweets from substantial-profile US politicians, Trump incorporated. Trump's Facebook post has garnered 154,000 reactions, 14,000 comments, and 6,500 shares, as of publishing.

Most recently, Twitter added a "manipulated media" notice to a video Trump shared of two toddlers hugging and playing that had been edited and distorted to appear as if the cable network CNN had aired it with its own chyrons. Trump claimed that mail-in ballots "will be anything less than substantially fraudulent" and that it could lead to a "rigged election". This isn't the first time the social media platform has hidden one of the president's tweets behind a warning label.

Today's tweet is the newest in what could turn into several illustrations of Twitter implementing its system policies in opposition to the president.
