Pence defends Trump's tweets on N

In the past, after receiving many inquiries as to why no action has been taken against Trump's account, Twitter updated its policies to explain why it won't ban him.

"Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate", Twitter said in a post on a corporate blog.

Trump's Twitter account was deactivated for 11 minutes by an employee leaving the company in November, leading the tech giant to say it was taking steps to assure it did not happen again.

‪@jack breaks the rules of his own company, Twitter, to amplify a madman and endanger the world. The group, which said some of its members have theater and technology backgrounds, was planning a protest at Twitter headquarters Wednesday night. There are good arguments for Twitter to police hate speech, personal harassment, pornography, and other forms of abuse. But even with Twitter's latest clarifications, questions remain about how it defines and reviews political figures.

Heinrich and Wyden, both members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said they would like the intelligence community to assess the impact of Trump's tweets on Washington's credibility. Trump has all the power he needs to harass, intimidate, or threaten violence against people without Twitter.

Alabama or Georgia? Who will win the College Football Playoff national championship?
