Twitter Limits Tweet From Pres. Trump for "Abusive Behavior"

Twitter Content Removed

Twitter disabled the likes, replies, and retweets as well as placed an abusive behavior notice on the following tweet from President Trump:

There will never be an “Autonomous Zone” in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!

– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 23 Jun 2020

Users are only allowed to retweet it with a comment. Twitter Safety elaborated on the decision in a statement:

We’ve placed a public interest notice on this Tweet for violating our policy against abusive behavior, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group.

As Twitter previously stated in their rules for world leaders, regarding public interest:

However, if a Tweet from a world leader does violate the Twitter Rules but there is a clear public interest value to keeping the Tweet on the service, we may place it behind a notice that provides context about the violation and allows people to click through should they wish to see the content. We announced this in June.
