Zuckerberg explains why Facebook wont take action on Trumps recent posts

In a statement posted to Facebook late Friday afternoon, Mark Zuckerberg offered up an explanation of why his company did not contextualize or remove posts from the accounts associated with President Donald Trump that appeared to incite violence against American citizens.
We looked very closely at the post that discussed the protests in Minnesota to evaluate whether it violated our policies, Zuckerberg wrote. Our policy around incitement of violence allows discussion around state use of force, although I think todays situation raises important questions about what potential limits of that discussion should be.
Facebooks position stands in sharp contrast to recent decisions made by Twitter, with the approval of its chief executive, Jack Dorsey, to screen a tweet from the President on Thursday night using a public interest notice that indicated the tweet violated its rules glorifying violence. The public interest notice replaces the substance of what Trump wrote, meaning a user has to actively click through to view the offending tweet.
