After permanently forbidding U.S. President Donald Trump, Twitter suspended the account of his presidential campaign. The move appears two days following pro-Trump supporters drove past barricades and made their way into the U.S. Capitol building to interrupt the counting of Electoral College votes. Trump has frequently contradicted the 2020 presidential election results. He lost to Democratic challenger Joe Biden and professed that the election was “stolen.”
Twitter had suspended the president’s go-to megaphone, his @realDonaldTrump personal account, hours earlier. Twitter closed his @TeamTrump campaign account shortly following it sent out a tweet with a “statement from President Trump,” citing Twitter of “banning free speech” and agreeing with the Democrats and the Radical Left to quiet him. The social media platform also removed new tweets posted by Trump on the official government account @POTUS.

After the suspension, from celebrities to political figures, even companies expressed many social media reactions, jabbing fun at the president. Some questioned what took so long to forbid him from the platform. Whereas others stated, he would attempt to utilize his family members’ accounts to tweet from now on. After the ban, MySpace also commenced trending on Twitter, with many joking now he’ll attempt to revisit it now to rage.
Responding to the ban, Trump answered that he would be developing a platform shortly and would not sit silently. He shot off tweets from the formal presidential account, citing the company of colluding with the “Radical Left.” Nevertheless, the social network immediately deleted the tweets. Twitter states employing another account to circumvent a suspension is against its rules and that while it won’t halt government accounts like @POTUS or @WhiteHouse. Moreover, it will take measures to restrict their use.
