inmyverse: Lmfaooo they deleted his tweet 😂😂 I guess Trump is nuking Twitter HQ in the morning 🤷🏼♀ #donaldisoverparty https://t.co/AwmFDW3G5V


That second sentence was written by a pack of cowardly lawyers. Can't even understand if it's still available or not.

They didn't delete it, they just put a door in front of it.

Ambivalence: They didn't delete it, they just put a door in front of it.


Yes.  People still need to see the President of the United States condoning and tacitly encouraging the use of military summary executions to stop property thieves who also happen to be United States citizens.

That is in direct violation of his Oath of Office.
 
2020-05-29 8:42:30 AM  
Yeah, they reposted it verbatim to the White House twitter. They're daring Twitter to do it.
 
2020-05-29 8:42:51 AM  
Good.

Now watch right wing trash explode in fat cargo-shorted, plague-rat rage.

A President that uses Twitter is not a good President.
 
2020-05-29 8:44:02 AM  
Heh. I filed a report on the Tweet last night for shiats and giggles. I'm sure a bunch of other people did too. I'm really surprised that something actually happened.
 
2020-05-29 8:44:18 AM  
I heart this so much.

Yep, and hung a "here there be racists" sign on it

Keep going, Twitter. Remember, all they understand is whether you back down or not. The actual reasons and rationale are irrelevant. Go hard, and don't go back.
 
2020-05-29 8:46:02 AM  
Leaving it available will lead to more murders.

Is this the fat fark's McCarthy moment, at last?

I can't wait until that motherfarker is out of the White House, one way or another.

They should give him a time out, make him cry about his freeze peach on Fux News.

Also - for anyone who thinks Twitter is just going to back down - none of this would be happening without the explicit personal approval of Jack Dorsey.

Double down, that's all he understands.  Kick him right the fark off the platform.
 
2020-05-29 8:49:11 AM  
Oh no! Now the blithering racists will need an extra click to get inspired.
 
2020-05-29 8:49:12 AM  
And the official White House Twitter account reposted it, so I guess that's the official government stance now.
 
2020-05-29 8:49:37 AM  
At long last it sounds like they're finally tiring of his shiat.  A day late and a dollar short, but if his days on Twitter are numbered, he's rightly farked come November.

Exactly.

I really do think all of this stems from those vile rumors Trump was making about Joe Scarborough.

A one day mute might be interesting.

Hell, FB gave me a warning for violating thier rules against hate speech because I said "Americans are dumb". The Twitter modbots must be turned off completely for Trump.

They should also disable the delete function on his account and resurrect all the tweets he previously deleted because they were over the line even for his admin. Maybe in a greatest hits format where it posts an undeleted twit at the top of the feed every few hours.

What the fark are you talking about?  None of that makes sense.  You just typed some derpy trigger words.  Oh, I see the problem.  They linked this to the main page and pol tab.  Great, now we're going to have spittle flecked rants from moran pol tabbers trying to out hate trump and republicans in full view of everyone.

No. Dance all over every single button you can find - and god knows Trump has enough buttons - and do it as publicly as possible.

He's going to absolutely lose it, with his tiny, gouty fingers clenching in rage around his abused phone. If his primary bullshiat fountain is cut off, he won't be able to connect with his bots. Welcome to irrelevance.

I'm sure they'll focus on the free market solution to this probelm.

Yep.  I think when word gets out that over half the posts on a global pandemic are fake, and most sensible people are aware that it's also targeting our election process, you very quickly realize your business is built with a deck of cards and you better start doing something about it.
 
2020-05-29 8:54:11 AM  
It's beginning to become abundantly evident that giving the average asshole a platform to address the world was a dreadful mistake.
Social media was a dangerous, stupid mass delusion, and we need to write it off to experience and move on - it was never a good idea.

He was violating that oath within hours of saying it.

This is true. Trump has never played by the rules. Things like "honor your contracts" or "pay your debts" are unknown to him.

His only rule is "Can I get away with it?"

I too hope "delete" has been disabled for his account.  The thought of him trying to delete THAT tweet and being denied for "Insufficient Privileges" would certainly be a contender for  "How to give the President an Aneurism Part 3."

I mean, yeah, YOU realize that but we're talking about corporate execs here.  They are often selected for ambition and moral flexibility, with each generation of ambitious climbers promoting those that seem the most like themselves.

Sorry man, those farkers ruined white polo shirts too. Imagine all the jobs that have had to adjust their uniform so they don't look like white power protestors in their plague rat outfit.

Take that down too. The White House is not entitled to a Twitter page.

Twitter has complete cart blanche to keep or remove any pages they want.
