Facebook Rethinks Policy About Violent Language Politicians
Facebook is going to rethink its policy about politicians talking about violent intervention. That happens after Facebook staff revolted over a message from US President Trump.
That said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Friday in a meeting with his staff, The Verge reports based on an audio recording of that conversation. Zuckerberg spoke to his staff after dissatisfaction with a lack of intervention following a Facebook message from President Trump.
In that message, Trump responds to the protests in the US with the words “When the looting begins, the shooting begins.” The same message was addressed by Twitter, and placed behind a warning for ‘glorifying violence’. The tweet can still be viewed, according to Twitter, that is in the public interest.
