Viewers had to click on the message to see Trump´s original posting. President Donald Trump even threatened to shut down the platform. I'm making one thing clear on all our behalf - we will hold our peace until Trump leaves. Twitter has now flagged a couple of tweets posted by China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson. Twitter added the warning more than two months after the tweets were posted, reports The New York Times.

Not true and not illegal, tweeted Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey after US President Donald Trump accused the micro-blogging site of pulling his campaign video showing empathy for peaceful protesters. Dorsey said the micro-blogging platform would continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally.

The business leader ended his post with a note about how he believes social media companies can play a positive role in overcoming racial injustice in America, but that companies have to take action to ensure that their roles are "as positive as possible". "Please leave our employees out of this" tweeted Dorsey. President, himself is a heavy user of Twitter with more than 80 million followers.

Like other big tech companies, Facebook's workforce is largely white and Asian.

Trump campaign demands story retractions on tear gas use
The findings of the Army study led the U.S military to significantly reduce how much recruits were being exposed to the chemical. Is tear gas a chemical weapon? "Using it in the current situation with COVID-19 around is completely irresponsible", he adds.

Legal experts have warned that Trump's order is on shaky legal ground.

The social-media giant removed the campaign video - in which Trump condemns both Floyd's death and the resulting protests and rioting across the US - from both Facebook and Instagram on Friday.

In reaction to protests over George Floyd death, Trump, on his Facebook page, described demonstrators as "THUGS". The phrase has origins in the Civil Rights era when it was used to justify police efforts to crack down black demonstrators. "Since Friday, I've spent a lot of time trying to understand and process the decision not to remove the racist, violent post Trump made Thursday night, but Facebook, complicit in the propagation of weaponized hatred, is on the wrong side of history".

Coming to what Zuckerberg said?

The comments follow a series of protests from Facebook employees disputing the company's position of refraining from moderating the president's posts. "To members of our Black community: I stand with you".

During the staff meeting, Zuckerberg fielded questions from employees who were distressed by his decision and connected it to the lack of diversity at the company, according to staff who were on the call. Some employees staged a virtual walkout on Monday and one engineer publicly resigned this week.

Several current employees also weighed in, holding a digital protest. "I think we need to tread very carefully here", he wrote.

Facebook's policy is either to take down a post or leave it up, without any other options.
