Twitter Refuses Comment On Threatening Message Sent To Sen. Ted Cruz
Twitter declined to comment Tuesday on the Washington, D.C., chapter of Antifa sending a threatening tweet to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.
After a group of Antifa and socialist protesters drove Sen. Cruz out of the high-end restaurant Fiola on Monday night, the account “Smash Racism D.C.” promised future harassment from their members. (RELATED: Antifa Sends Threatening Message To Cruz After Disrupting His Dinner: ‘You Are Not Safe.’)
“You are not safe,” they wrote. “We will find you. We will expose you. We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others.”
Twitter’s rules prohibit “behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.”
“You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so,” Twitter’s rules state. “We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.”
After an inquiry into the status of the “Smash Racism D.C.” account, Twitter told The Daily Caller that they “don’t comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons.”
Twitter did not respond to an additional request for comment after this reporter pointed out that the tech giant commented about Infowars and Alex Jones’ accounts on multiple occasions.
The threatening tweet has been on the platform for 12 hours as of the publishing of this article.
UPDATE (2:16 PM):
The threatening tweet has been deleted.
