TWEET/DELETE: Twitter Removes Thousands of Tweets About 'Trans Day of Vengeance'

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.30.23

Twitter has stepped in to remove thousands of tweets it feels violate Trust and Safety policies regarding comments that are meant to incite violence; the company automatically removed upwards of 5,000 tweets and retweets of a poster promoting an event called “Trans Day of Vengeance.”

The demonstration was supposed to take place this Saturday on the steps of the Supreme Court.

“We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. ‘Vengeance’ does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok,” Ella Irwin, Twitter’s head of Trust and Safety, wrote.

From The New York Post:

The crackdown came just days after Audrey Hale, who police said identified as transgender, carried out a mass shooting at Covenant School in Nashville, killing three 9-year-old students and three adults before she was shot dead by cops.

In scrubbing the tweets, Twitter said it used automated processes to do it quickly and on a large scale, without considering the context in which the tweets were shared.

Many right-wing users lashed out at the platform for using this broad-brush approach and unfairly applying the rules to them, arguing that they were merely retweeting the flyer to denounce the upcoming demonstration.
