Twitter is Considering Labeling Tweets from Politicians that Violate Rules… Including Tweets from the President

An executive from Twitter was asked why President Trump can say whatever he wants on Twitter. The executive, who is the head of legal, said they are considering a new feature that will label tweets from politicians when they violate Twitter rules. Twitter may put notes on offensive tweets from public figures with a message about why they haven’t been removed from the site. Twitter has followed the belief that some posts from public figures should remain up because they are “newsworthy,” even when they violate Twitter guidelines. Twitter’s policies dictate that tweets from politicians are important to public debate.
