Delete @realDonaldTrump

To be delivered to Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO

Petition Statement

Donald Trump has abused Twitter to bully, lie, misdirect, and misinform. He has threatened two nations with military violence in direct violation of Twitter's terms of service—and that's not his only violation. Delete @realDonaldTrump for misuse.

Petition Background

Donald Trump used the Twitter platform to incite and promote violence against women by posting a video of himself hitting a golf ball into Hillary Clinton. This is just the latest example of Trump's misuse of the site—earlier this summer, he used Twitter to threaten an entire nation!

A significant number of Trump's tweets have also included language of hate, racial discrimination, fear mongering, and outright lies.

Twitter's terms of service state:

Abusive Behavior:
We believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.

Any accounts and related accounts engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension.

Violent threats (direct or indirect):
You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.

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.

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.

Donald J Trump tweets on average once every 4 hours. A significant majority of these messages have included language of hate, racial discrimination, fear mongering, and outright lies. Now he has used digital media as a platform from which to threaten nuclear war on an entire nation of people! If this is not a direct violent threat, harassment, and hateful conduct, I do not know what is.
