In a blog post last week, Twitter finally responded to the growing concerns about Trump's seeming carte blanche to send whatever messages he wants on the service, regardless of whether or not any of his tweets break the service's rules. Basically, Twitter decided that we're all better off if world leaders are able to express themselves freely on the platform and confirmed that it has no plans to ban the president or take down his most controversial tweets.
While some of the platitudes in Twitter's blog post failed to ring true, the explanation made sense. That aside, Twitter can run its business any way it wants. But as much sense as it made, the explanation was still a bit lacking, which is why Bruce Daisley, Twitter's VP in Europe, followed up on the post in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live.
