After Twitter put a warning label on one of his tweets, U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is pushing back. Twitter was claiming his tweet violated the company’s rules about “glorifying violence.”
Twitter, which has generated controversy for putting a fact-checking label on tweets from President Trump, after they affixed a “get the facts” alert under some of Trump’s tweets targeting California’s mail-in ballots. The president then accused the social media platform of interfering in the presidential election.
“Now that we clearly see Antifa as terrorists, can we hunt them down like we do those in the Middle East?” read Gaetz’s tweet that got flagged. The social media giant’s warning limits the number of ways people can interact with it, including likes and retweets.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida has said that Twitter “should no longer be shielded from liability” if it moves from its place as a social media forum. Following Twitter’s move, Trump signed an executive order instructing federal agencies to reevaluate the provision.
“Their warning label is my badge of honor. Antifa is a terrorist organization, encouraging riots that hurt Americans. Our government should hunt them down. Twitter should stop enabling them,” Gaetz tweeted. “I’ll keep saying it.”
