Twitter censors Daily Wire reporter Luke Rosiak for tweet about Transgender Day of Violence: Daily Wire reporter Luke Rosiak tweeted about the Nashville school shooting and the Trans Day of Vengeance, saying “The shooting of a Christian school by a transgender comes the same week that activists scheduled a ‘Trans Day of Vengeance,’ with the group also raising money for firearms training" and linking to an article he previously wrote about the questionable event. According to reporting at the Daily Wire, Twitter claimed that Rosiak's tweet violated its "rules against violent speech," and locked his account until he deleted the tweet. There is a missing tweet in Rosiak's Twitter feed that indicated "This Tweet violated the Twitter rules." It appears Twitter censored every post about the Trans Day of Vengeance, even if the post criticized the event. Twitter VP of Trust and Safety Ella Irwin tweeted that the platform "had to automatically sweep our platform and remove >5000 tweets /retweets of this poster. We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. "Vengeance" does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok."
