Rep. Ilhan Omar spoke to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on the phone this week and demanded to know why the social media platform hadnt deleted a tweet from President Trump that she said incited violence against her.
The Twitter boss called Omar on Tuesday to talk about the presidential tweet, which shared a provocative video inter-splicing the Minnesota Democrats comments about 9/11 with footage of the Twin Towers in flames, according to The Washington Post.
Omar, who said she experienced a surge in death threats in the days after the April 12 tweet, pressed Dorsey to explain why the company hadnt deleted it, a source told the paper.
Dorsey said it was because the tweet didnt violate Twitter rules. He also pointed out that the tweet and video had been viewed and shared beyond the site.

Hard as it is to believe, I agree with Meghan McCain on something and fully support her in saying the above.
Do Muslims do anything besides kill people or complain that people don’t like them?
I was here for it and sometimes it seems like a million years ago and sometimes it seems like yesterday.
How do we know how many death threats she’s gotten?
Not saying she’s lying but is it as bad as the pizza owners who wouldn’t take a gay pizza party wedding gig?
We need new platforms. We need to break out of the iron-jacketed control all these leftist commie anti-Americans are holding our people in. We need new platforms. Right now.
Re a fatwa: I wonder why the Ayatollahs didn't issue a fatwa against Obama? He supposedly converted to Christianity and I thought was absolutely verboten in Islam. I think they knew he really didn't convert and was a friend to Islam and thus no fatwa.
BTW, I believe Obama is an atheist; it's not cool for a leftist to be a Christian.
Trump is one of the few twitter users who isnt a leftist
Geez, I’ll say a prayer for that poor guy. I assume he was being beheaded.
Those bloody savages! But we “infidels” have our guns, no thanks to the terrorist-loving Dianne Feinstein. War is coming and no flesh will be invulnerable, if you get my drift.
Freedom of speech you B***H!
Truly THUGGISH behavior. Dont respond to bullies.
“#NotTodaySatan” back at you Omar. Mogadishu is calling your name.
Screw her and the other lying rats. Its like nothing ever happened to Steve Scalise, and the other Republicans werent just threatened, an attempt was made on their lives.
they rape women children and animals also
Did L’il Mz Bomb Vest, the Somali, hire some Nigerian actors to send her death threats!?
Bump! I honestly believe if I were a muzzie her behavior would embarrass me.
Omar, who said she experienced a surge in death threats in the days after the April 12 tweet,
What? Some people did something?
according to the daily mail, she didn’t just ‘press’ Dorsey for an explanation - she ‘demanded’ that he remove the tweet. Dorsey didn’t agree with her that Trump’s video had increased death threats to her. And he emphasized Twitter policy against ‘hate speech’ to her.
Also, according to the DM, she lied about civilians being killed in the land of Mog -
“Earlier this week, a tweet resurfaced from 2017 in which she falsely claimed American soldiers killed ‘thousands’ of Somalis in the first Battle of Mogadishu, the 1993 event chronicled in the book and movie ‘Black Hawk Down.’
The highest published Somali death toll is the UN’s estimate of 500.
Many were militia members battling to kill or capture a handful of U.S. soldiers after two attack helicopters were shot down in Somalia’s capital city during a mission to capture a warlord who attacked UN Peacekeepers.”
(apparently she hasn’t impressed the Limeys much, either)
Is that why Dorsey met Trump?
Rush mentioned yesterday that Twitter usage is actually a very small percentage of the population and is made up mostly of elitist leftists.
IE, we give Twitter way to much credence and power.
We should just not GAS about Twitter: Its meaningless and mindless. Phrases like “Twitter blew up...” should be met with “Yeah?
