As Protest Images Spread, Twitter “Restricts Engagement” With Tweets That “Risk Violence”
As images of the US Capitol under siege (as the media proclaims) shock many around the world, Twitter has decided that – for our own good – these images should be “restricted”…
In addition, we have been significantly restricting engagement with Tweets labeled under our Civic Integrity Policy due to the risk of violence. This means these labeled Tweets will not be able to be replied to, Retweeted, or liked.

Funny, we don’t remember Twitter doing this during the constant rioting that was on display all summer-long across America.
