  • Arsen Ostrovsky asked why Trump’s tweets were flagged but not Khamenei’s
  • Twitter justified the decision by saying Trump’s tweets could ‘inspire harm’
  • In contrast, Khamenei’s posts are ‘commentary on political issues of the day’
  • Social media site has been criticized for suspending Donald Trump. Jr’s account
  • He was temporarily banned for post saying hydroxychloroquine is a COVID ‘cure’

Twitter defends not blocking Iran leader’s tweets after blocking Trump’s

By Fox News, July 30, 2020

Twitter representative defended during a hearing Wednesday on anti-Semitism the social media site’s decision to not flag tweets from Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei after flagging tweets from President Trump.

Khamenei has several tweets on his profile that call for the “elimination” of Israel, or “Zionist regime.” In a May 21 tweet, he wrote, “The only remedy until the removal of the Zionist regime is firm, armed resistance.”

The Twitter representative said that when political leaders’ tweets are about “comments on political issues of the day” or “foreign policy saber-rattling on military and economic issues,” they are “generally not in violation of our Twitter rules” during the hearing.

The representative was responding to a question regarding the site’s decision to flag a tweet from Trump regarding the administration’s militarized response to riots, in which he stated, “Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
