Twitter Blog: World Leaders on Twitter

Twitter Blog: World Leaders on Twitter. “Twitter is here to serve and help advance the global, public conversation. Elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation because of their outsized impact on our society. Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.” I’m reading this as “we’re holding world leaders to LOWER standards of behavior because they are world leaders” which seems bizarre to me.
