President Donald Trump has had a tumultuous experience on Twitter of late. Just recently, he had one of his tweets flagged for misinformation, another for copyright infringement, and now, for “abusive behavior.”
Trump often takes to Twitter to address pressing issues without holding back. However, the social media platform has taken it upon itself to make sure information is fact-checked and filtered for abusive language or copyright misuse.
Trump’s recent tweet threatened “serious force” against those trying to form an autonomous zone in Washington, D.C. However, there is a present autonomous zone in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle.
“There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ n Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President,” Trump’s offending tweet read. “If they try they will be met with serious force!”
Twitter flagged his post with a disclaimer reading, “We’ve placed a public interest notice on this Tweet for violating our policy against abusive behavior, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group.”
Trump hasn’t taken Twitter’s policies well, seemingly responding by signing an executive order aimed against the social media company.
