Tell Facebook Oversight Board to Ban Trump Permanently – Tweet Storm

April 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Donald Trump is no longer on Facebook, which has been a welcome respite for everyone who wants posts that incite hate and violence and spread dangerous disinformation off their social media feeds.

According to a report from Zignal Labs, misinformation dropped over 70% once the former President was banned.

But the tech giant gave the decision about whether to keep Trump off of Facebook permanently to its brand-new Facebook Oversight Board.

Last week, the Facebook Oversight Board announced that it would delay its decision on whether to give back a megaphone to Donald Trump so that he can once again spout lies, hate, and disinformation on Facebook.
We have another chance to be sure they get our message loud and clear.
Join the Tweetstorm, Monday, April 26 2pm – 3pm ET and send the Facebook Oversight Board members the clear message: hate and lies have no place on Facebook. Ban Trump for life.

I-RISE Newburyport and other Massachusetts Indivisibles are participating in this Tweetstorm planned for Monday, April 26th 2pm – 3pm

Here are some toolkits you can use:
Global Exchange
Facebook Users Union
Defenders of Democracy Against Disinformation
