Twitter blocked sharing of link to Trump advisor's phone number

Twitter blocked sharing of link to Trump advisor's phone number

Miller's phone number was shared hundreds of times on Twitter, and retweeted by many more users.

Amid flailing immigration bills and widespread controversy over administration enforcement of undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers, a Republican member of Congress has called on President Donald Trump to fire Stephen Miller, a senior White House adviser known for his far-right views.

The encounter took place on Sunday at Espita Mezcaleria.

Meyers called him the definition of evil.

"While Miller's comments were on the record, we realized that the ground rules for the original interview were not clear, and so we made a decision not to run the audio", The Times said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Last month, the Trump administration chose to begin criminally prosecuting almost all illegal border crossers, tightening up a policy that had in the past been more discretionary and lenient to illegal immigrants.

"[For] Miller, the public outrage and anger elicited by policies like forced family separation are a feature, not a bug", wrote McKay Coppins.

Twitter's terms of service strictly prohibit "doxxing", or publicly posting someone else's personal information such their private phone number, physical address, or email address, without their "express authorization and permission". Today, we temporarily blocked accounts that shared this information until they deleted the Tweet that violated our rules.

On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order that he said would keep families at the border together while strengthening security.

The social media site later announced it was no longer blocking accounts because Mr. Miller's cell was "no longer a valid number".
