Snapchat Will No Longer Promote Trump's Account For Inciting 'Racial Violence And Injustice*

• https://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden

Snapchat - whose employees were busted spying on users sexting each other - has joined the digital resistance, announcing that they will no longer promoting President Trump's account on its "Discover" page of curated content, according to Axios - which couldn't make their disdain for Trump any more transparent if they tried.

"We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover," the company said on Wednesday.

The 'meddling' move comes after Trump tweeted comments which were interpreted by some to glorify violence during protests over racial injustice.

Via Axios:

Why it matters: Snapchat is taking action on the president's account for comments he made elsewhere. That's going farther than other big tech firms and signals a commitment to aligning content served to users with core values, rather than making moderation decisions based narrowly on each post made on its own platform.
