Remember that you can alert on Donald Trump's tweets

He's got some trying to peddle the Russian propaganda about Biden.
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump
(I can no longer view the exact tweet because I reported it)

Twitter has already taken down stories about this. It will probably take down Trump's tweet too if it gets enough alerts.

Twitter has removed some of his tweets and even temporarily locked his account. It's a small thing, but it does limit his ability to spread his lies. I'm not saying alert on all his tweets, but I do alert on the ones I see that spread Russian propaganda and misinformation designed to suppress the vote. Those are criteria by which Twitter will remove a post.

A couple of days ago, the lunatic claimed that Twitter shut down in order not to spread is Russian story. This is the level of madness we are dealing with.

1. How long before the MSM pretends this is an actual issue?

Remember the rule, if it is a con there can be 2000 SUBSTANTIATED stories and they wont cover one of them, if it is a Dem there can be only one story that is already proven false and they will cover it 24/7.

8. I have appealed to twitter on several dozen occasions.

I NEVER get a response from them nor do I get unblocked.

11. that's strange.

Not that I know how responsive Twitter is. I would have thought they'd just lift all the blocks after that court order.

I don't actually follow him directly. I see his posts when someone on my feed responds.

6. Great

He's so brazen in his efforts to suppress the vote. He shows himself to be more duplicitous by the minute. I can't wait until he's gone.

10. Something to consider: you need to specify a reason for a Twitter Alert

I'm not interested in this Tweet

It’s suspicious or spam

It's abusive or harmful

It's misleading about a political election or other civic event

It expresses intentions of self-harm or suicide
