Twitter apologized to the Jews!

According to a statement made by Twitter, because of the followers' interest on the tweet (positive and negative), Twitter’s trend algorithm automatically caused the phrase “Kill All Jews” as a trending topic in the left column. About 10 minutes after the tweet was on the Trends, Twitter's official statement was as follows: “This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we’re sorry for this mistake. This was trending as a result of coverage and horrified reactions to the vandalism against a synagogue in New York. Regardless, it should not have appeared as a trend.”
