The message of the american president, however, remain visible to subscribers in their account and will appear when a user does a specific search. "We're not going to amplify voices that incite to racial violence and injustice in making their free promotion on Discover" the info thread of the network where users can find the latest products, recommendations or even publications, media or well-known personalities, said the company.

Snapchat has joined Twitter which has provoked the ire of the president of the United States last week, by putting warnings on the messages it sends to its more than 81 million subscribers. The two networks have, however, chosen not to completely banning Donald Trump. "Racial violence and injustice have no place in society and we are in solidarity with all those who seek peace, love, equality and justice in America", points out Snapchat.

Facebook does or does not censor the president's remarks

This announcement --such as Twitter-- comes as hundreds of thousands of people demonstrate for more than a week in the country --sometimes violently-- against the police violence made visible minorities and particularly the black population. The death of George Floyd, asphyxiated by a police officer while he was handcuffed and presented no resistance, at the end of may was the trigger of these demonstrations in a country already plagued with a pandemic that has claimed more than 100,000 deaths and brought the unemployment of tens of millions of people.

in Contrast to Twitter and now Snapchat, Facebook, the first social network in the world has chosen not to report or censor in any way is the message of the american president. A decision assumed by Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer and founder of Facebook, but criticized very publicly by some of the staff of the company.

bjr, it is not a question of left-wing or right-wing...it is that the head of state, the u.s. is not in a capacity to lead a country; or even have a shop of household appliances; it is sick, hateful and full of him to a point that makes it dangerous on an international level.

Since the death of Floyd, Biden has won 3 PST in the polls.
Even Rasmussen (one of the institutes who had given Trump winner) gives Biden in front with 5 points ahead !
