Company rejects complaints that US president’s tweet was in violation of its terms of service
Twitter has refused to take down a tweet by Donald Trump threatening North Korea, arguing that the statement by the US president was “newsworthy” and in the public interest.
Trump posted a tweet in response to a speech by North Korea’s Ri Yong-ho at the United Nations on Sunday, indicating that if the foreign minister “echoed” the thoughts of Kim Jong-un, the two men “won’t be around for much longer”. It is the latest in a series of hostile statements between the two countries.
