Twitter reminds everyone it's against the rules to hope someone dies. It didn't go over well.

Twitter’s abusive behavior policy is supposed to protect everyone. Following Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis, thousands are claiming it doesn’t. 

On Friday, the social media platform attempted to clarify its rules on abusive tweets, stating: “Tweets that wish or hope for death, serious bodily harm, or fatal disease against anyone are not allowed and will need to be removed.” The explanation came following a report from Vice on what content the platform would and would not allow surrounding the health of Trump — who, as of Saturday morning, is not yet on a “clear path to recovery.”
