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.

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.

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