Twitter has censored a Drudge Report tweet of President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign slogan, “Keep America Great”, due to “sensitive content”, a report said.
“When Twitter users navigate to the page of the Drudge Report with their ‘sensitive content’ filter enabled, they are unable to see the Drudge Report’s full tweet,” Breitbart reported on March 11. “For new Twitter users, the ‘sensitive content’ filter is enabled automatically and has to be manually switched off.”
The president revealed the 2020 slogan at a rally in Pennsylvania on March 10.
Twitter’s “sensitive content” filter “appears to be triggered whenever anyone (including the President of the United States) re-tweets the Drudge Report,” Breitbart’s report said. “Users navigating to the official account of the Drudge Report will find that all tweets from the account that contain URLs are hidden behind the same ‘sensitive content’ warning message. When the President – or anyone else – re-tweets the account, their tweets are hidden too.”
In order for users to see the tweets, they have to manually disable their content filter by unchecking the box marked “hide sensitive content” in their safety settings.
