Calling for the rape of women is a new trend allowed by Twitter.
The social media giant does not approve of President-elect Donald Trump so it allowed threatening tweets calling for raping Melania Trump to trend over the weekend. It also allowed assassination threats against Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
Calls for violence weren’t removed willingly by Twitter until users thrashed the liberal-leaning goliath. From Breitbart:
Outside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, a protester held up a sign saying “RAPE MELANIA,” which went viral.
The trend later disappeared Sunday afternoon after many tweeted their outrage.

“RapeMelania” – free speech!
“Assassinate Trump” – free speech!
“Run them over” – inciting violence leading to @Instapundit suspension
“So who’s going to assassinate Trump at his inauguration?” one Twitter user demanded to know.
“I just pray that the first n***a who tries to assassinate Donald Trump don’t miss,” another added.
One joked: “My mom is talking about assassinate donald trump. watch out guy my white suburban mother is coming for you.”
While some also called for the death of vice president-elect Mike Pence.
“If trump wins pls dont assassinate him without getting mike pence first because his a** is f***ing crazy,” one user tweeted…
A source close to the Secret Service, told the DailyMail.com that the agency were well aware of the threats and that they had seen a spike since Trump was elected on Tuesday.
(Secret Service) said there were ‘mechanisms in place’ to monitor social media for such posts, and to determine which threats were more concerning than others but said that “every threat was taken seriously.”
It’s not the first time Twitter has been challenged for its left-leaning support and lies to the public.
Twitter routinely removed pro-Trump trending topics and manipulated hashtags that hurt failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the election. Furious users accused the site of censoring the explosive DNC Wikileaks story in July after #DNCLeaks, with over a quarter million tweets, vanished from the Trending section, replaced by the far less popular #DNCLeak.
