In recent days, President Donald Trump has used his Twitter account to threaten war crimes in recent days, raising tensions in the Middle East following his assassination of Iranian General Qassim Suleimani.
Following Iran's launch of ballistic missiles against military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq, Trump raised eyebrows by tweeting that "all is well" and "so far, so good."
Many people wondered why Trump has not been banned from Twitter.
"The world would be safer if Trump was de-platformed by [Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey] for his repeated abuses of this site's own standards. I say this with utmost seriousness," wrote New York Times contributor Wajahat Ali.
Others agreed that it was a threat to world peace for Trump to continue to use Twitter, where Trump is followed by 69.8 million accounts.
