A similar kind of tweet is still live on the profile.
“Twitter has zero-tolerance policies in place to address threats of violence, abuse and harassment, and hateful conduct. If we identify accounts that violate these rules, we’ll take enforcement action,” the spokesperson added.
Both Twitter and Facebook are in trouble for taking slow action, people are raising questions in the content moderation policy of both the platforms.
