Twitter accused of double standards after silence on Pelosi's tweet

Just days after social media giant Twitter purged accounts who dared to challenge the results of the 2020 election, a tweet by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from 2017 resurfaced where she claimed the election was "hijacked."

Twitter has faced fire from both sides of the aisle since it announced it had banned President Donald Trump from its platform.

Twitter slapped Trump's tweets with policy violations for challenging Biden's victory.

But after the Capitol Hill riots from last week, Twitter stated Trump would no longer be welcomed back.

In 2017, Pelosi tweeted:

"Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to #ProtectOurDemocracy & #FollowTheFacts."

Her tweet came on the heels of Mueller's investigation, which found no evidence of collusion.

"Uh oh Twitter, why is this allowed," radio host Dana Loesch asked.

"Incitement!" Daily Wire writer Amanda Prestigiacomo wrote.

"No label from Twitter on this," conservative personality Comfortably Smug added.

"Oh wow. I just glanced at this and thought it was some crazy Trumpist," Babylon Bee writer Frank Flemming reacted.

"This tweet by @SpeakerPelosi from 5/7/17 is an illustration of how months after the 2016 election, leading Dems were still sowing doubt about the integrity of the election just as they did after FL 2000. This rhetoric paved the way for the other side to do the same," political commentator Yossi Gestetner wrote.

But Twitter declined to respond to whether Pelosi's tweet violates its policies on misinformation and election integrity.

Twitter said last week that allowing Trump to return to Twitter risked "further incitement of violence."

The platform justified this by pointing to two relatively tame tweets from the president, one who said he would not attend Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20

"These two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks," the company said.

"After assessing the language in these Tweets against our Glorification of Violence policy, we have determined that these Tweets are in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy and the user @realDonaldTrump should be immediately permanently suspended from the service."
