The popular app Snapchat announced they will no longer promote President Trump’s content in their Discover section, adding that they will not “amplify voices who incite racial violence.”
NBC reports Snapchat said Wednesday it would no longer promote President Donald Trump’s content in its Discover section, a move that brings the messaging company closer to Twitter’s approach in the ongoing debate over political speech.
The company said in a statement that it would not “amplify voices who incite racial violence.”
Snapchat’s Discover section typically features content from news organizations, brands, celebrities and sometimes politicians. The president’s account remains visible on the platform, and anyone can follow the account for updates.
Snapchat’s change will remove Trump from the Discover section.
“We are not currently promoting the president’s content on Snapchat’s Discover platform,” the company said. “We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover. Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, love, equality, and justice in America.”
