An account known as @DJTDesk, who claimed to be tweeting “on behalf” of Trump after Trump launched his own communications platform – titled “From the Desk of Donald J Trump” – on Tuesday, May 4, has been suspended by Twitter for sharing Trump’s post.
A spokesperson for Twitter said the account, @DJTDesk, violated the ban evasion policy by sharing content “affiliated with a suspended account.”
The account was suspended hours after appearing on Twitter.
Trump was permanently banned from Twitter in January after he voiced support for rioters who stormed the US Capitol.
The bio for the @DJTDesk account read: “Posts copied from Save America on behalf of the 45th POTUS; Originally composed
According to Twitter, although it does allow accounts to share content from Mr Trump’s new website, it won’t allow an individual to “circumvent” a ban.
Those “evasion” rules can include “having someone else operate on your behalf, an account which represents your identity, persona, brand or business persona for a different purpose.”
