Twitter defends its decision not to take down Trump’s retweets of anti-Muslim videos

After President Trump shared three inflammatory anti-Muslim videos on Twitter earlier this week, the social media company defended it’s decision to leave the posts online, saying Friday that the commander-in-chief’s retweets did not violate its media policies.

The videos — whose authenticity could not be independently verified — were originally posted by a far-right British activist, Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First.

Did James Comey Subtweet Michael Flynn? Perhaps.

Not long after the president’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the F.B.I., the man who was leading the agency when the lie was told, James B. Comey, had something to tweet.

In what has become an occasional habit, Mr. Comey offered what appeared to be a quotation of relevance to the day’s unfolding news, in this case a biblical verse about justice.

Twitter is paralysed by Trump's tweeting

Once again, Twitter finds itself between a rock and a far-right place.

Donald Trump’s retweeting of Britain First’s Jayda Fransen on Wednesday was a truly shocking moment. The British Prime Minister said it was “wrong”. It contributed, as one US news site put it, to Trump’s “darkest day” as President.

Yet as Wednesday rolled into Thursday, the leader of the free world retweeting a far-right organisation became just another frightful part of what we apparently refer to as the “new normal”.
