TWITTER permanently suspended President Donald Trump’s account on Friday over the risk of him inciting more violence – but he proceeded to slam the platform on his official @POTUS handle.
The social media company suspended the president’s personal @realDonaldTrump account on Friday evening in light of Wednesday’s Capitol riot, and quickly deleted his tweets in response using @POTUS.
In the now-deleted @POTUS tweets, Trump claimed that “Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me” and the “75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.”
Trump said he predicted that Twitter would try to silence him and that the company would not exist for long if it were not for Section 230, which protects websites from lawsuits if users post illegal content.
The president said he has been negotiation with “various other sites” and would have a “big announcement soon,” and possibly build his own platform.
“We will not be SILENCED! Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” Trump tweeted.
