Twitter explains why it will not ban Donald Trump from tweeting

Twitter Inc. cleared the air regarding controversial world leaders and how they use Twitter about a week ago. Not pointing the finger at anyone in particular, the social media company posted a fairly short blog post titled World Leaders on Twitter, explaining how its service “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.”

If we were to take a wild guess, Twitter may have been referring to tweets from U.S. President Donald Trump, as he may have put his citizens in danger of a perceivable nuclear attack.

Even alleged derogatory remarks are fair game for the U.S. President’s Twitter.

“We are working to make Twitter the best place to see and freely discuss everything that matters,” continued Twitter. “We believe that’s the best way to help our society make progress.”

Obviously, these outrageous tweets will likely continue, and Twitter simply cannot infringe on any user’s freedom of speech on the platform.

Fek news: Demono and Donald Trump reignite the presidential election debate

No matter what side of history you choose to be on, U.S. citizens are living in a Trump America today. The 2016 presidential election was riddled with allegations of Russian hacking and corruption, making it arguably the most controversial election in U.S. history.

On top of that, the final results were shockingly close, even giving candidate Hilary Clinton slight preference in the popular vote. But was it really that close?

When taking a closer look at the results, the American people answered by simply not answering, as Clinton couldn’t convince enough people to Pokémon go to the polls. The non-voter turnout was staggering, and a testament to whether or not the Democratic nominee deserved a seat in the White House.

Perhaps President Donald Trump’s tirades are what the U.S. citizens deserve, considering that was the dominating Republican nominee.

Yoweri Museveni removes presidential age limit in Uganda, allowing him to run for a sixth term

For the last twenty years, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has maintained rule over the African country, and his latest law signed on December 27, 2017 will help him continue his reign.

Museveni removed the presidential age limit of 75, letting him (currently 73) to run for a sixth term in 2021. Over two decades of being in power must have him convinced that being the Ugandan president is his life calling.

Yoweri Museveni

According to Deutsche Welle, “Museveni’s long rule has faced public outcry in recent years in response to widespread corruption, human rights violations and inadequate public services.” There are plentiful opposition leaders who find Museveni’s reign to be absurd, so this new presidential age limit is of their utmost concern.

Mike Mullen speaks out on U.S. chances of nuclear war with N. Korea

Adm. Mike Mullen, Former Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff, voiced his concern about the dangers the Trump administration has imposed to the citizens of the U.S. The rhetoric involving nuclear war between the United States and North Korea was whimsically glossed over here and there in 2017, but Mullen believes the U.S. could be in a dangerous circumstance.

Despite efforts to instill a peaceful conversation around the topic, Mullen said in an ABC interview that “clearly, the president has chosen to try to disrupt and break those up as much as possible, creat[ing] a great uncertainty. And in my view, an incredibly dangerous climate exists out there in that uncertainty with how this all ends up in — and one in particular that is — top of the list is North Korea.”

Mullen makes a great point, as Kim Jong Un has wasted no time to announce exactly how his military will deal with any threat from the U.S. involving nuclear weapons.

“The US cannot wage a war against our country at all,” Kim said in an interview. “The entire mainland of the U.S. is within the range of our nuclear weapons, and the nuclear button is always on the desk of my office. They should accurately be aware that this is not a threat but a reality.”

Of course, the U.S. president had a rebuttal to further prove Mullen’s worried sentiments to be accurate.

This meme fits accordingly:

Switzerland head of Foreign Affairs deletes a slew of his old tweets

Ignazio Cassis, an Italian born citizen, was recently chosen to hold the position of Switzerland’s newest cabinet minister, serving as the head of Foreign Affairs. With this new title, Cassis has taken the time to scrub his Twitter feed clean of any tweets that may make him seem unfit to be Switzerland’s foreign affairs minister.

Politwoops, a tweet archiving website designed to track politician’s deleted tweets, accounted for over 500 tweets that were meant to never be seen again. Luckily, data on the web will always be available for archiving, as it is very clear Cassis removed over 90% of his posts almost two weeks ago.

“I will take my political values as a Radical Party member to the cabinet, but I’m prepared to listen to other opinions and reserve the right to change my mind if need be,” Cassis said at a news conference a few months ago.

According to a report from Tages-Anzeiger, Cassis is focused on using his social media platforms to promote business operations within his department.

Colombia murder rate lessens as peace deal is made with FARC

Correlation does not always equal causation in most cases, but it’s nice to be optimistic about recent peace deals that may have led to lessened murder rates.

Colombia, one of the world’s most dangerous countries due to drug crimes and high murder rates, had a substantial reduction of homicide take place this year, at least according to Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas.

The guerrilla military group known as FARC recently turned over a new leaf, becoming the Common Alternative Revolutionary Force, a political party within the Colombian government. After agreeing to disarm themselves, murder rates have continually decrease over the years.

Hopefully this trend continues. If you want to learn more about the murder rate in Colombia or other countries, check out the video below.

Google’s AI development team to create a new research lab in China

Although Google search engine services are nonexistent in China unless you have a VPN, the company has made great efforts to create new innovations in artificial intelligence. Knowing China is riddled with experts scientists in the field, Google is willing to cooperate with the Chinese government to advance AI technology worldwide.

“I believe AI and its benefits have no borders,” Google Cloud chief scientist Fei-Fei Li said in her blog. “Whether a breakthrough occurs in Silicon Valley, Beijing or anywhere else, it has the potential to make everyone’s life better for the entire world. As an AI first company, this is an important part of our collective mission. And we want to work with the best AI talent, wherever that talent is, to achieve it.”

“It will be a small team focused on advancing basic AI research in publications, academic conferences and knowledge exchange,” Li added.

This could very well be the onset of China realizing what kind of company Google is. Global efforts focused towards a collective goal in technology may be the bridge this world need to come together as a cohesive unit.

USA Today sounds off on Donald Trump after his tweet to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Once President Donald Trump sent out this tweet ridiculing Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), the floodgates opened for the USA Today editorial board to dig deeply into his character.

Although this is no anomaly for Donald Trump, USA Today’s editorial team felt the U.S. President crossed the line dissing Kirsten Gillibrand. The harsh nature of his words bring no added value to a political system already riddled with distractions.
