Twitter again slaps warning on Trump tweet threatening force against protesters

first_imgTwitter Inc on Tuesday placed a warning notice on a tweet by President Donald Trump threatening “serious force” against protesters in the US capital, the second time it has used the label since it began challenging Trump’s tweets in May.”There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Washington, DC, as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!” the president said in his tweet, which Twitter said violated its policy against abusive behavior. At least 150,000 people had liked Trump’s tweet and 33,000 retweeted it before Twitter restricted engagement, according to the most recent image captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. His post on Facebook received 12,000 comments.The warning escalated Twitter’s challenge to Trump, who has used the platform unimpeded for years to rally supporters and deride opponents.After the company last month started applying labels to his messages, Trump announced plans to scrap or weaken a law that has protected internet companies in order to regulate social media platforms more aggressively.Twitter’s first public interest notice against Trump also involved a threat of force against protesters, who have been demonstrating against racial injustice since the May 25 death of George Floyd, a Black man, in police custody.Trump had used the phrase “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” to threaten deadly force against protesters in Minneapolis, where Floyd died.Twitter said that message violated its rules against “glorifying violence.” It has also appended fact-checking and manipulated media labels to Trump’s tweets in the last month.  Topics : Police cleared the White House area on Tuesday and blocked access to the site, where law enforcement had used violence to disperse protesters earlier this month.Twitter said it hid Trump’s tweet behind its “public interest” notice because it included a threat of harm against an identifiable group. The label restricts distribution of tweets by public officials which violate Twitter’s rules, while leaving them online to allow for scrutiny.A Twitter spokeswoman said teams within the company’s safety division informed Chief Executive Jack Dorsey of the decision before applying the notice.Facebook, which has taken a more hands-off approach to speech by political leaders, left the same post untouched. Trump posted the message after anti-racism protesters on Monday declared a “Black House Autonomous Zone” – referencing a Seattle area taken over by activists known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone – in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House.last_img read more

Former Australian Soccer Player to purchase a Football Club in BiH?

first_imgConstantinos Boutsianis, the former national representative of Australia, who played for the most famous clubs in the country (South Melbourne and Perth Glory) as well as English Bolton, has been staying in the capital city of BiH for several days.The main culprit for his arrival is Samir Ceric from Banja Luka, a very successful businessman in the UK, as well as one of the symbols of the creative industry. He was put on a prestigious list of the most powerful people in the world of art and fashion by the famous Times Magazine.“While thinking about different possibilities, I reached a conclusion that I have to start my mission in the former Yugoslavia, and I believe that it has some great football talents like Susic, Savicevic, Prosinecki, Bazdarevic and many others. I want to come to work in BiH and use some of my connections with the rich Asian market with the aim to attract investors in BH football. BiH and its surroundings are ideal for my new start. There is plenty of these masters with the ball here, but it is evident that there are some problems in the work with young players,” said Constantinos Boutsianis, who observed yesterday’s derby Zeljeznicar – Zrinjski. Dzenan Zajmovic, and young Nermin Hajdarevic and Haris Handzic attracted his attention.In the past few days, Boutsianis and Samir Ceric participated in the negotiations on the topic of potential investments in FC Sarajevo and FC Zeljeznicar.“We have a very concrete intention to invest here. We would like to obtain the co-owners rights somewhere, as well as to invest money at the youth academy of clubs. I believe that we can achieve great results here with some modest investments in regard to rich European countries. There is a concrete plan on how that money would return, but we have to see in which extent are BH clubs ready to respond to our requests,” stated Boutsianis.He also met with Darko Ljubojevic, team manager of the senior national team of BiH and head of UEFA’s project of development of elite young player in the capital city of BiH, as noted in the statement.(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more
