Facebook employees have taken issue with the company's lopsided content policies in the past, but this is the first official protest they have staged.
Even so, the weekend criticism marked a rare case of high-level employees publicly taking their chief executive to task, with at least three of the seven critical posts seen by Reuters coming from people who identified themselves as senior managers.
"We encourage employees to speak openly when they disagree with leadership. As we face additional hard decisions around content ahead, we'll continue seeking their honest feedback".
Trump's posts came as protests flared around the country following the death of George Floyd, a Black man, after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck.
"We are NOT attempting to address all misinformation", Twitter says in one of the messages, posted under its Twitter Safety banner.
Mr Zuckerberg told employees in a video conference on Tuesday he talked to Mr Trump on the phone after the decision, and that he "used that opportunity to make him know I felt this post was inflammatory and harmful, and let him know where we stood on it", The New York Times reported, citing a recording of the call.
Twitter and Facebook both have in place systems to combat disinformation and unsafe content - appeals to hatred, harassment, incitement to violence and the like.
"Respect to @Twitter's integrity team for making the enforcement call", wrote David Gillis, identified as a director of product design.
A Facebook spokesman said: "We're grateful that leaders in the civil rights community took the time to share candid, honest feedback with Mark and Sheryl [Sandberg, Facebook's COO]".
"The problem with Facebook is they have a policy problem", Robinson said.
"There isn't a neutral position on racism".
Between the lines: Zuckerberg noted that the dissatisfaction among workers marked a change from just a short time ago.
"Giving a platform to incite violence and spread disinformation is unacceptable, regardless who you are or if it's newsworthy", Crow wrote. Zuckerberg reacted by telling Fox News that private social media platforms "shouldn't be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online".
In the suit, embedded below, the CDT argues that the executive order is "plainly retaliatory" in attacking Twitter, which was within its First Amendment rights in annotating the president's tweet.
The order also threatens to "curtail and chill" constitutionally protected speech "by demonstrating the willingness to use government authority to retaliate against those who criticize the government", the group said in its federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington, DC.
Amid the ongoing spat between United States president Donald Trump and Twitter after the latter flagged a post by the American president on the ongoing protests against the murder of an African-American man named George Floyd, the social media platform on Wednesday posted a detailed thread outlining its policies and principles and their enforcement process while highlighting controversial tweets.
