Trump’s ‘Penis-Measuring’ Nuclear War Tweet Not Threatening Enough for Twitter

Social Media Platform Relaxes Violence Policy For Global Annihalation

Vogue: “President Donald Trump continues his violent Twitter tirades unabated.”

According to the medium’s stated rules and policies, one is not allowed to threaten violence and/or wish serious harm on specific people on Twitter. But as is now the custom, the rules do not appear to apply to Trump. Yesterday, the president doubled down on his trans-Pacific penis-measuring contest with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and sent what The Atlantic is calling ‘the most irresponsible tweet in history’:”

“Surely, threatening nuclear war is an offense that is at least as bad—if not egregiously worse—than [Rose] McGowan posting someone’s private phone number online . . . right? But according to Twitter, wrong. While McGowan was temporarily suspended, @realDonaldTrump’s Twitter feed blazes on.”
