Twitter has issued a public interest notice after US President said that the protesters attempting to set up an "autonomous zone" in Washington DC would be "met with serious force!."

Earlier, Trump had tweeted: "There will never be an 'Autonomous Zone' in Washington, DC, as long as I'm your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!"

Subsequently, Twitter hid the tweet by Trump.

"We've placed a public interest notice on this Tweet for violating our policy against abusive behaviour, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group", Twitter was quoted by CNN.
