     Facebook and other social media are a danger to this nation.  Facebook on Friday censored first daughter Tiffany Trump, barring people from posting her tweets after labeling them spam.  The social giant’s censorship, which the company later claimed was an “error,” followed fierce criticism from Capitol Hill of Facebook and Twitter restricting access to The Post’s reporting on emails from Hunter Biden implicating his father, Democratic presidential  candidate Joe Biden, in business deals in China and Ukraine. Facebook blocked users from sharing the 27-year-old Georgetown Law grad’s tweets on Facebook Messenger and on their news feeds.

     An error message read: “This URL goes against our Community Standards on spam: twitter.com/tiffanyatrump.” A Facebook spokesperson told The Post, “The URL was incorrectly flagged by our automated systems as spam. We have corrected the error.” The social network did not ban links to the Twitter accounts of Trump’s other adult children, including sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, who are known for more frequently posting political content.
