Petitioning Twitter, Inc

Ban Trump From Twitter

President-Elect Donald J. Trump routinely thumbs his nose at the Terms of Service of his favorite social media outlet Twitter. And yet, he is allowed to continue to tweet (and tweet, and tweet). Twitter's guidelines clearly bar "abusive behavior," defined in part as:

Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include:
* if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others;
* if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats;
* if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and
* if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.

The Terms of Service go on to bar:

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.

Even the most casual survey of Trump's Twitter feed will confirm that in his daily communications, he is guilty of hate speech, inciting hatred, harassment and violence against others, threatening those who do not agree with him, and literally every point included in the guidelines' "hateful conduct" section above. Few thinking people would dispute that Trump's Twitter account is one, as described in the guidelines, "whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others."

Therefore, we the undersigned call on Twitter Inc. to suspend or terminate Mr. Trump's account immediately.
