What does it take to get banned from Twitter?
According to the social media giant’s rules and regulations violent threats, or wishing physical harm or death should do the trick.
So too references to mass murder, violent events and specific means of violence aimed at a primary target.
Actor Kal Penn has pointed out the president of the United States’ posts fit the bill.
In the past week Donald Trump has retweeted his threats to rain down fire and fury, boasted about the readiness of his nuclear army and told a nation his ‘military solutions’ were ‘fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely’.
He also warned its leader Kim Jong-un that he hoped the dictator would find another path.
Mr Penn, who has 439,000 followers on Twitter, contacted the site’s administrators.
He wrote: ‘Hey @Twitter, is threatening nuclear war not a violation of terms of service?
‘Seems pretty clear that you can’t threaten mass murder via nuclear war, right @twitter? Asking for 7.4 billion friends.’
The post has been retweeted more than 28,000 times since it was posted on Friday, August 11.
