Twitter’s violence rules don't apply to military, governments

From CNET: Twitter's taking a tougher stance on threats of violence, but some groups are getting a bye.

On Monday, Twitter announced its latest push to curb abusive behavior on its social network by hate groups and organizations promoting violence. The antiviolence effort, though, has a limit.

"This policy does not apply to military or government entities and we will consider exceptions for groups that are currently engaging in (or have engaged in) peaceful resolution," Twitter wrote in its new policy, detailed on Monday.

That apparently means Twitter spats like the feud between Russia's and Ukraine's official accounts would be fine under the policy, as well as certain tweets from president Donald Trump, who has sent threats to North Korea through the social network on multiple occasions.
