Twitter Now Suspends Donald Trump Team’s Account
Washington: Following a permanent ban on US President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account @realDonaldTrump, the micro-blogging site now has also banned the account of his presidential campaign.
Twitter blocked his @TeamTrump campaign account shortly after it was tweeted “Statement from President Trump” and accused the micro-blogging site of “banning free speech” and coordinating with “the Democrats and the Radical Left” to silence him.
The social media platform also deleted new tweets posted by Trump on official government account @POTUS.
However, son Donald Trump Jr also called Twitter’s decision to ban his father as “absolute insanity.”
While his father is banned, “the ayatollah, and numerous other dictatorial regimes can have Twitter accounts with no issue despite threatening genocide to entire countries and killing homosexuals etc,” Trump Jr steamed.
Founder of communist China Chairman “Mao would be proud,” Trump Jr said.
Twitter, in a blog post, explained that the suspension was due to factors such as evidence that plans for future armed protests were proliferating on and off the platform, “including a proposed secondary attack on the US Capitol and state capitol buildings on January 17, 2021,” agencies reported.
