Twitter, Facebook users will be suspended if wishing Trump’s death

0
They say such posts will be removed.

According to reports, President Trump is suffering from COVID-19. Although some people hope that he will recover soon, others publicly tweeted that he would die of the disease. As you might think, this obviously violates Twitter’s rules-the company told Motherboard that it will enforce those rules.

In other words: you can’t tweet that Trump will die of COVID.

Specifically, Twitter told the publication that it will suspend those who wish Trump to die, although it is not clear how often Twitter can do so.

Such posts by a Facebook spokesperson on Friday violated the social media giant’s user policies and will be deleted.

This is an example of a recent response to Trump’s original tweet, which appears to be trying to evade detection:

Twitter responded to this sentiment and said on Saturday morning

According to Twitter’s Abusive Behavior policy, the actual rules that apply here are very clear:

Wishing or hoping serious harm on a person or group of people

  • 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. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Hoping that someone dies as a result of a serious disease e.g., “I hope you get cancer and die.”
  • Wishing for someone to fall victim to a serious accident e.g., “I wish that you would get run over by a car next time you run your mouth.”
  • Saying that a group of individuals deserves serious physical injury e.g., “If this group of protesters don’t shut up, they deserve to be shot.”

Trump is currently headed to the Walter Reed Medical Center for testing and treatment.
