Apparently asking for your followers to gang-rape a public figure isn’t in violation of twitter’s rules of conduct.
Twitter will not suspend Azealia Banks’s account after the rapper tweeted that Sarah Palin should be gang raped because the violent language ‘was not in violation of the Twitter Rules.’
The social media company’s response came after a user submitted a complaint and was first reported by Breitbart.
‘We reviewed the content and determined that it was not in violation of the Twitter Rules,’ the company said in a statement, according to Breitbart.
The content that Twitter approved of included tweets that had Banks calling for Palin to ‘get headf****d by a big, veiny, ashy black d**k’ and for ‘the biggest burliest blackest n*****s’ to ‘run a train on her.’
According to Twitter’s rule book, the company does not ‘tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.’
Violent threats, ‘direct or indirect’ are also forbidden: ‘You may not make threats of violence or promote violence,’ the rules read.
