So, the President of the United States tweets a statement that Rule of Law will be enforced in our nation's capitol:

There will never be an “Autonomous Zone” in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!

And Twitter puts an advisory on the tweet:

This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about abusive behavior. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public's interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.

Because Twitter calls the President's statement of fact a "threat of harm".

SMFH. Well, I guess that's scientific evidence that TDS is a real thing. Or it's a sign that Twitter has finally jumped the shark and gone from a fetid cesspool of human discourse, to an asylum run by the inmates that is now on fire.

If Jack Dorsey had a group of anarchists peaceful protesters forcibly take over his neighborhood and declare an "autonomous zone," I'm guessing he'd be on the phone to the police within seconds demanding the use of "serious force" to remove them. It's all fun and games until it's your house getting burned down.
