On Friday, after Sayoc was identified as the pipe bomb suspect, she shared a screenshot of an email showing that Twitter had determined that Sayoc’s tweet was within the boundaries of its terms of service when she reported it.

Reached for comment, a Twitter spokesperson declined, telling BuzzFeed News, “This is an ongoing law enforcement investigation. We do not have a comment.”

But on Friday evening, Twitter said in a statement that it “made a mistake” and that Sayoc’s tweet “clearly violated our rules and should have been removed.”
