This weekend has seen Twitter accused of hypocrisy after the company removed tweets from people who expressed a wish that President Trump would die from COVID-19 …
Twitter’s comms account said that such tweets were against its rules.
Tweets that wish or hope for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against *anyone* are not allowed and will need to be removed. This does not automatically mean suspension.
The tweet linked to the rule on this, which reads:
We do not tolerate content that wishes, hopes or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against an individual or group of people.
However, many were quick to point out that Twitter appears to enforce this rule selectively.
