This is the crux of the problem. In multiple interviews, @jack has said Trump's tweets are newsworthy and wouldn't directly answer what it would take to get the president reprimanded or removed.— Ryan Mac (@RMac18) February 15, 2019
But what happens when another world leader tweets a threat?https://t.co/km7KFOn4Qw
The @khamenei_ir account will go into read-only mode until the offending tweet is deleted by the user. (The account hasn't tweeted since yesterday.) The public will also not be able to see the tweet.— Ryan Mac (@RMac18) February 15, 2019
So far, no suspension or removal of the account, according to Twitter spox.
A Twitter spokesperson just said this tweet from Iran's leader violated its terms of service and has been made unavailable.— Ryan Mac (@RMac18) February 15, 2019
