Multiple Twitter users noticed that after typing the word "People," or phrase "Enemy of the People" in the Tweet box, Twitter will suggest they tag "The New York Times" newspaper.




US President Donald Trump has repeatedly called the 'New York Times' newspaper the enemy of the people, most recently on April 5th.




The recommendation happens regardless of whether or not you're following the @NYTimes account, and requires the user to type "People" with a capital P.



Some Twitter users noticed Wednesday that the social media platform automatically associates the phrase "Enemy of the People" with the official New York Times Twitter account, a seemingly strange phenomenon that's fanning the flames of speculation in the current overheated political climate.
In fact, Twitter is not just associating "Enemy of the People" with the 168-year-old newspaper. Typing "Friend of the People" will also trigger as a suggestion to tag the @NYTimes account. As will simply typing the word "People" - so long as the P is uppercase.
So what's going on?
