In reality, Twitter could have gone farther if it really intended to silence the president or even his supporters. To say nothing of removing the tweet entirely (which did break its terms of service, after all), it could have fully removed the retweet button from Trump’s message—leaving the tweet live but making it impossible to endorse or amplify.

Frieda was the only one of Issa’s coworkers who actually tried to get to know her.
