Twitter deleted someone's reply to me saying "Taiwan needs a nuke". It was probably deleted under the mistaken impression that they were saying Taiwan should be nuked, an interesting double standard considering how many tweets you see saying "Nuke Iran", "Nuke North Korea" etc.

I mean it's possible Twitter could have deleted it for the right reason: that the commenter was calling for nuclear weapons to be given to Taiwan, because that is what they were saying. But that would mean a lot of empire think pieces also need deleting. hoover.org/research/put-nuke…

Twitter users call for Iran and North Korea to be nuked all the time, and always have. I've never once heard of a tweet being deleted for this reason. But saying nuke Taiwan is off limits.

It’s the height of bad manners to suggest pointing nuclear weapons at an official ally.
