Social network giant Twitter Inc. defended its decision on Tuesday not to delete United President Donald Trump’s post in which he threatened North Korea, according to the company’s official statement. The online news and social networking service stated it did not take any actions due to the tweet’s “newsworthiness,” the statement explained.
Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!

However, Twitter did say it will update its “public-facing rules” to reflect the company’s internal policy. The issue of Trump’s tweets has become a matter for debate after he became the president since many of his posts are often considered offensive.
This has long been internal policy and we’ll soon update our public-facing rules to reflect it. We need to do better on this, and will 4/6

Earlier, Pyongyang stated Trump “tried to insult the supreme dignity” of North Korea, calling his words “a declaration of war.”
