Twitter CEO Defends Trump Tweet Against Rep. Ilhan Omar
Twitter CEO Defends Trump Tweet Against Rep.
Ilhan Omar Reports say Jack Dorsey called the
congresswoman due to the rising number
of death threats made against her.
Omar claims the threats stem from criticism on Twitter from President Trump.
The specific tweet from the president
was a 9/11 tribute video that mixed
in words from Omar.
The Twitter CEO made the phone call to
Omar on the same day he had a meeting
with Trump over other matters.
According to 'The Washington Post,'
Dorsey said that Trump's tweet didn't
go against standards on the website.
A spokesman for Twitter says the site condemns death threats and all
incitement to violence on its platform.
The company adds that it is talking with the
Minnesota congresswoman about paths going forward.
