Twitter said Trump broke its rules; Facebook lets same posts be

While Twitter hid President Trump’s tweet that read ’when the looting starts, the shooting starts’, Facebook left the post as is. Facebook previously decided to exempt politicians from its third-party fact-checking, but there is no exception for incitement to violence. CEO Zuckerberg defended the decision arguing that Facebook has a policy to allow warnings of the use of force by state actors.

Funny to see that the orange man bad crowd hasn’t flooded this particular comment section with they usual claims that trump is enacting a futile attempt to censor tech.

I don't see how the tweet glorified or incited violence. It's a pretty simple concept. If you start smashing up buildings and trying to get inside the owners are likely to try and stop you.

Geez, who would have though that perhaps the people that revere the famously inexpert will latch onto and be captivated by rhetoric and advice; no matter how inherently false, or dangerously concerning the logic.

Screw Zuckerberg and his politician ass kissing attitude. Screw Trump's delusional ass too.

What do the critics of this think? By hiding his words they can somehow stop the actions to follow?
