Not an accident: Twitter temporarily blocks liking/retweeting President Trump’s tweet

by DCG

How come Twitter never has to use their “inadvertently” excuse with progressive accounts?

Yesterday Twitter “accidentally” disabled the like, reply and retweet features for President Trump’s tweets.

From MyFoxChicago:

“We try to prevent a Tweet like this that otherwise breaks the Twitter Rules from reaching more people, so we have disabled most of the ways to engage with it,” Twitter said in a message to users who tried to engage with the tweets.

Twitter then reactivated the like and retweet buttons but kept a warning message: “Help keep Twitter a place for reliable info. Find out more before sharing.” It only allowed users to retweet with a comment.

Twitter told Fox News it had disabled the features accidentally.

We inadvertently took action to limit engagements on the labeled Tweet you referenced. This action has been reversed, and you can now engage with the Tweet, but in line with our Civic Integrity Policy policy it will continue to be labeled in order to give more context for anyone who might see the Tweet,” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News.”
