Twitter says that the social media company is not removing any posts that promote hate speech or violence after a report that the company is.
The company has removed about 140,000 posts in the past 24 hours, it said Thursday.
The social media platform did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The company’s top executives have been publicly critical of President Donald Trump, and Trump’s administration has taken steps to quell dissent with a series of executive orders that have led to mass protests and violent protests.
The post on the company’s site, which has been up for hours, read:”We don’t condone or support any of the content posted by those who have promoted hate speech and violence against individuals, groups, or institutions in the United States or around the world.”
The company said it would be making its account public again after the end of the next working day.
The move comes as many social media platforms are being hit with criticism over their handling of violence against protesters, and amid reports of violence and vandalism against the police in several cities.
Earlier this week, Twitter and Facebook suspended more than 2 million accounts over their failure to crack down on the content of violent and threatening posts.
