Pence defends Trump's tweets on N

Trump's repeated Twitter attacks on individuals and businesses have led numerous president's critics to argue that he has violated the platform's rules.

At the sight of this very powerful man once again using Twitter to antagonize North Korea (and the world) with the threat of nuclear war, users berated Dorsey about the platform's rules, questioning why Trump's account wasn't being blocked for his behavior.

These calls were renewed Tuesday night, after Trump used Twitter to taunt North Korean leader Kim Jong-un about his nuclear arsenal.

In a vague post called "World Leaders on Twitter", Twitter awkwardly sidestepped the controversy over whether Trump's Twitter account violates its terms of service altogether, instead asserting that it doesn't matter if a world leader violates its terms of service - they should have a home on the platform nonetheless.

Critics said that tweet and Trump's continued presence on the network endanger the world and violate Twitter's ban on threats of violence.

Logan Paul takes break from YouTube following video backlash
After the video went live, many criticized Paul for exploiting suicide to gain more views on his channel (via NPR ). The "So Sorry" video he uploaded did not do him any good because the video received over 1.2 million dislikes.

In an interview with United States broadcaster Voice of America, Pence said the president's leadership on the world stage has resulted in "measurable progress", especially on the issue of North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Reaffirming its somewhat unclear terms of service, Twitter said that world leaders are effectively above being blocked from the service because their tweets are "important information people should be able to see and debate".

Twitter and President Donald Trump go together like peanut butter and jelly, or death and taxes.

The issue has been complicated for Twitter. Last year, the U.N. Security Council adopted three sets of sanctions to punish the regime for its banned tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles and its sixth nuclear detonation in September.

In recent months, Twitter has moved to address what it will and will not allow. Further, Twitter stated that a decision to shut down an account controlled by a country's leader "would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions". But it is-judging from the multiple White House officials and administration veterans The Daily Beast talked to for this story-also one they have normalized internally.
