Days after social media giant Twitter banned President Trump from its platform due to the violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol, San Francisco police are preparing for a demonstration of supporters at the company’s headquarters on Monday.
Although there is no official news about the mass demonstrations, social media traffic urges supporters of the president to gather at Twitter headquarters.
Since March 2020, thousands of Twitter employees who usually work on Mondays have not been in the building since March 2020, when they were required to work remotely because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
A spokesperson for the company said in a statement to the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday night that Twitter respects the “right of people to express their opinions.”
The spokesperson said in an email: “Although we respect the right of people to express their opinions, we remain transparent about the factors that led to the decision made last week.” “We have nothing to add, but want to confirm that we continue from Twitter Mandatory work is carried out in the employee’s family guidance.”
The San Francisco police told the newspaper that they had developed a plan, including asking nearby law enforcement agencies to provide mutual assistance when needed.
Twitter announced on Friday that the account has been permanently suspended due to fears that Trump’s tweets may trigger violence.
The company said in a statement that Twitter officials have reviewed Trump’s tweets last week and determined that they violated the site’s policies.
Trump supporters took over the U.S. Capitol by force and announced their suspension a few days after Congress began to prove Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election, resulting in five deaths.
Twitter wrote at the time: “In the terrorist incident this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that further violations of Twitter rules may lead to such actions.” “Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to directly listen to elected officials. And the opinions of world leaders. It is based on the principle that people have the right to openly hold accountability.
“However, we can go back a few years and clearly stated that these accounts did not completely exceed our regulations and therefore cannot use Twitter to incite violence.”
The statement included Twitter’s documentation of Trump’s tweets, which the company said violated its “violent violence” standards.
Twitter is not the only one taking action against the president. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Youtube have also suspended Trump’s accounts, and Amazon, Apple, and Google have all launched pro-Trump Paller from their platforms.
