Twitter changes color in solidarity with Black Lives Matter
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 01 - 06 - 2020

Twitter Inc. changed its profile pictures to express solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement as protests raged across the United States over the death of George Floyd.
George Floyd is an African-American man who died after a policeman restrained him with a knee on the neck.
The protests erupted in several cities of the US against the death of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis with the protesters demanding that action be taken against the police officers responsible for the murder of Floyd.
The main Twitter account also retweeted a thread from Twitter Together, an account that promotes diversity, saying, "Racism does not adhere to social distancing." It further stated, "Amid the already growing fear and uncertainty around the pandemic, this week has again brought attention to something perhaps more pervasive: the long-standing racism and injustices faced by Black and Brown people on a daily basis."
Trump Vs Twitter
Twitter and President Donald Trump are on a collision course after the leader tweeted about Floyd and the Minnesota riots.
Trump threatened to send the National Guard and accused the protestors of being "THUGS" who were "dishonoring the memory of George Floyd," adding that he "won't let that happen." He raged, "When the looting starts, the shooting starts."
In a new blow to the tweets of US President Donald Trump, twitter, on Friday, has hidden one of the president's tweets saying it represents "glorifying violence", amid escalating confrontation between Trump and Twitter about "freedom of expression."
The US President was commenting on the riots in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as protests escalated after the death of black American citizen George Floyd, who appeared in a video struggling to catch his breath while a white police officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck.
Trump warned, "When the looting starts, the shooting starts." "These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen," President Donald Trump tweeted.
Twitter has posted a warning and hid Trump's tweet that can no longer be liked or replied to. but can be accessed by clicking on the "view".
