Dear 1600 Daily subscribers,
We are forwarding you this email that the White House just received from Twitter. It’s so absurd, we just had to share it with you.
This morning, the White House Twitter account reposted text from a tweet sent by President 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 CONDEMING 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.
See the email below for yourself:
