It’s fairly well known that Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Twitter has a huge problem with Trump, his supporters and pretty much anything that does not endorse the sentiments of the extreme left.
In the past the social media platform has been exposed as not enforcing their Terms of Service equally, and it’s engineers have been exposed as using algorithms to censor any account they deem right-wing.
If you use Twitter, you have to accept the fact that Jack and his engineer’s don’t play by their own rules. This includes tweets calling for the assassination of The President of the United States.
This tweet has been reported numerous times not only by myself but by many others since it was made on June 24, 2018.
More tweets exist with same sentiment –
If by some horrible chance someone acts on the suggestion of the person that tweeted this, it is my opinion that they as well as the whole of Twitter be somehow held legally responsible. By not removing this tweet and the user they are, in my opinion endorsing the sentiment.
It doesn’t matter if you are a Trump supporter or not, this kind of behavior especially in our current political climate should be condemned by all, and yes I would say the same thing if it had been said about any of the other candidates/players.
The above tweet has been removed by the author, Dean Anthony Gratton, whose Twitter account is still active. It does not however seem to have come at Twitter’s instructions as I didn’t receive notice from Twitter (per my reporting the tweet) that it was found in violation.
Therefore the question remains – Why is Jack Dorsey and Twitter endorsing the assassination of our president and allowing the hashtag, #AssassinateTrump to remain up and active on his platform?
