While we are very limited on the nice words we have to say about President-Elect Donald Trump we are also stumped like many of you as to why Twitter hasn’t deleted his account yet, not just for his countless violations of Twitter’s terms of service but on the basis of idiocy. (and just because)
The POTUS had his account deleted for 11 minutes prior, which turned out to be done by an employee on his last day but Twitter has finally spoken out about why Donald Trump still holds an account.
“There’s been a lot of discussion about political figures and world leaders on Twitter, and we want to share our stance. Twitter is here to serve and help advance the global, public conversation. Elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation because of their outsized impact on our society. Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets, would hide important information people should see and debate. We review Tweets by leaders within the political context that defines them, and enforce our rules accordingly.”
