Twitter Removes Tweets Mentioning 'Trans Day of Vengeance' Protest
Twitter is removing mentions of a “Trans Day of Vengeance” protest organized by the Trans Radical Activist Network scheduled for April 1 in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.
Details: On Tuesday, Twitter issued a seven-day suspension on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) congressional Twitter account after the congresswoman tweeted about the event, alleging it was connected to “Antifa & trans-terrorism.” The suspension was overturned Wednesday. Twitter’s head of trust and safety, Ella Irwin, stated in a tweet that the platform was removing tweets including the poster for the planned demonstration, stating, “We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. ‘Vengeance’ does not imply peaceful protest.” Greene’s tweet about the event did include the poster, potentially triggering the suspension. Other accounts have similarly faced suspension for tweeting about the event.
Trans Day of Vengeance: A message on the Trans Radical Activist Network website quotes an individual present at the Stonewall Riot in 1969 recounting a Molotov cocktail being thrown and stating, “the revolution is here.” Following this, the message states the planned protest “is about unity, not inciting violence. TRAN does not encourage violence and it is not welcome at this event.” The message does not reference anti-fascist groups.
How The Media Covered It: Breitbart News linked the planned protest to the mass shooting in Nashville this week committed by a trans-identifying individual. LGBTQ Nation stated in its coverage that “the vast majority of murderers are cisgender.”
