Twitter has apologized for briefly allowing a hashtag that translates to 'Die Trump' to trend in Turkey.
'#MahvolursunTrump' began trending on Twitter on Monday after US President Donald Trump threatened to 'destroy and obliterate' the Turkish economy if he deemed the nation's military action in Syria 'off limits'.
'This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we're sorry for this mistake,' a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to DailyMail.com.
'At times, we do prevent certain content from trending and we have now done so with this trend.'
The Twitter trend came hours after the White House announced Sunday that it would be removing US troops from Syria's northern border, leaving Kurdish forces in the region vulnerable to long-planned attacks by Turkey.

I shouldn’t check here from work sometimes as some threads get me very angry and distract me.
Not that my work is any good when i’m not distracted lol
I’ll apologize for briefly saying leftist Silicon Valley type techies are worthless toilet scum.
“Sorry.” See, all okay again.
I wonder how it would take to take down a #RapeObama tag
Oh that’s ok! It could happen to anybody so as long you’re reeeealy sorry, we’ll let it slide! Please be careful next time if you wouldn’t mind as these mistakes happen on a very regular basis. Perhaps you can talk with your staff and train them to be more careful? Thank you sooo much!
What is briefly, 1,212 hours?
To: Sleeping BeautyI think we made a fundamental mistake in the post 9/11 world. The message we should have sent was:
You F with our country, not only will we track you, personally, down and kill your worthless butt, and as many of your equally worthless kin as that mission takes, but your entire country and/or those that supported you will simply cease to exist.
Afghanistan should have been fragmented along ethnic lines into mutually warring pissant regions, and the same fate should have befallen Iraq.
Turkey, who wouldn't allow us to stage on their turf would be rewarded with a hostile Kurdistan on their border...
I assume that their trending list is automatically generated from tags that are being used a lot at the moment and is also language/location dependent
Currently when I go to twitter.com on my computer I see
Trends for you
A more rewarding Target run.
Promoted by Target
58% of Americans
Turkish word ‘mahvolursun’ translates to ‘thou perish’
Meanwhile, they block Glenn Becks chalkboard on the Ukraine.
Ping a ling a ding dong.
So the Turks didn’t take Trump’s financial threat seriously, eh? About that...
The best thing that ever happened to me was I was banned from Twitter.
Thank you Twitter.
How quickly would #YuckFouJustin be taken down, (if it could even be posted)? How quickly would the author of such a hashtag find the Mounties breaking down that person’s door in the middle of the night? How quickly would CSIS be monitoring every aspect of that person’s life? How quickly would Justin(e) brand such a person, a ‘terrorist’, ‘racist’ and a ‘white nationalist’? How soon would the Kanadaharian MSM, bought and paid for by the Lieberals under Justin(e), be calling for the imprisonment of said person, for being a destroyer of democracy? The answer to all these questions is, “Quicker than a US Dhimmicrat can call for impeachment of PDJT!”
Our Prime Mistake once said, You know, theres a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime...”. What he DIDN’T admit was how much he admires how the ChiComs control their media! In Kanadahar now, he is as successful, if not more so than the ChiComs, in controlling the media in Kanadahar. THIS is 2019 (more like 1984) Canada.
The Ginsburg! The!
Thats my joke back.
