Facebook has stated that Buhari’s controversial statement on the Nigerian civil war – which was deleted by Twitter – doesn’t violate their community standard.
Twitter deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet where he issued a threat to deal with “misbehaving” elements in “the language they understand”, while making reference to Nigeria’s civil war.
While defending its action, the tech company said the President’s tweet violated its rules.
Unlike Twitter, Facebook has left the message on their platform, as they stated that it doesn’t violate their community standars.
Replying a user who reported the post, the social media giants wrote;
