Facebook deleted the post that contained a clip from an interview the President gave to Fox News – saying it contained “harmful Covid misinformation”. This is the first time Facebook has chosen to remove one of President Trump’s posts.
Twitter followed by saying it had frozen a Trump campaign account until a tweet of the same clip was removed.
A Facebook spokesperson said on Wednesday evening: “This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation.”
The 17-year-old was asking for a lower bail amount, after pleading not guilty to the charges on Tuesday, but Zoom users – changing their names to mimic CNN and BBC News employees – dropped in to the meeting uninvited.
Florida newspaper the Tampa Bay Times reported that the “interruptions grew so frequent… Hillsborough Circuit Judge Christopher C Nash ended the Zoom hearing temporarily”. However, the interruptions resumed when the hearing did.
Some attendees played music down the line. Another used Zoom’s screen-sharing feature to play pornography, which reporters said was the final straw that suspended the meeting.
It will store videos, messages and other data generated by European users from the short-form video-sharing app.
Until now all of its users’ records were stored in the US, with a back-up copy held in Singapore.
The announcement comes at a time when President Trump has threatened to ban the app in the US on the grounds its Chinese ownership makes it a national security risk, which TikTok’s Beijing-based parent company Bytedance denies.
Reels is Instagram’s answer to TikTok’s dominance of short term video sharing and lets users create short-form videos set to music that can be shared with friends and followers or discovered while browsing the app.
Reels allows people to record videos up to 15 seconds long and add popular music, as well as an array of filters and effects over the top of them.
