Twitter Ignores Threats Against Fox News Guest – They Could Have Stopped Him
By Jake Wilson|October 28, 2018

He could have been shut down if liberals did their job.

More information is coming out by the hour on the dangerous events of this past week.

But now we are learning that a related event on Twitter is connected to the string of explosive packages delivered to Democrats, and it’s becoming clear a big mistake was made.

According to Twitter’s terms of service, “specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people” are not permitted.

But apparently they’re not following their own rules, or at least they are doing it selectively.

One woman using the site received such a threat. Twitter failed to take action, and it turns out if they had followed through, it could have stopped a terrible series of events.

From The Cut:

After authorities released Sayoc’s name, Rochelle Ritchie, a political commentator and former congressional press secretary, tweeted that she had tried to report an account under that name earlier this month, after it sent her threatening messages and menacing images after one of her appearances on Fox News. In the same tweet, she attached the response she got from Twitter on October 11, which reads, “There was no violation of the Twitter Rules against abusive behavior.”

“Hey @Twitter remember when I reported the guy who was making threats towards me after my appearance on @FoxNews and you guys sent back a bs response about how you didn’t find it that serious,” she tweeted. “Well guess what it’s the guy who has been sending #bombs to high profile politicians!!!!”

Cesar Sayoc’s tweet menacingly told Ritchie that he’d take her for a “nice silent Air boat ride” in the “Everglades Swamp.”

He ended that tweet with, “Hug your loved ones real close every time you leave you home.”

He also posted a photo of Ritchie alongside photos of what appeared to be a body eaten by an alligator.

But by Twitter’s standards, this didn’t appear to count as a “specific threat of violence.”

SHARE if you think Twitter made a HUGE mistake and the mainstream media shouldn’t cover it up!

After her post went viral however, Twitter attempted to save face by claiming the site’s dismissal of her concerns was “an error”, and that they were suspending the account.

Rochelle didn’t appear to buy Twitter’s apology, telling them to, “Just stop!”

“Out of all social media services, Twitter is the absolute worst when it comes to political divisiveness,” Ritchie said in an interview.

While Ritchie may be a Democrat, she condemned both the attacks on Democrats and against conservatives.

“It’s not OK to threaten anyone’s life, whether it’s our current president or our former president or members of Congress.”

SHARE if you think Twitter deserves to face an avalanche of bad publicity for their silence on hate speech.
