In an interview with Politico, yesterday Twitter warned that even President Donald Trump could be banned for abusive behavior. CEO Jack Dorsey and Twitter’s legal and policy chief Vijaya Gadde were in a side-by-side discussion with the leftist news organization.
Twitter’s rules against vitriolic statements, which generally lean against users on the right, offer a little leeway to public leaders because their statements are considered as newsworthy, but according to Vijaya Gadde, “it is not a blanket exception for the president or anyone else.”
According to a recent legal analysis by Constitutional Attorney Robert Barnes of Law and Crime, this seizure violated the Fourth Amendment as well as attorney-client privilege protections.
