Twitter is making it perfectly clear it does not want Donald Trump’s political statements on its platform in any way, shape or form.
Since Trump opened up his new “desk” website, where users can post his statements onto various social media accounts, it seemed like only a matter of time that social media companies like Twitter would find an excuse to suspend some users who share those statements, as well.
“Twitter suspended an account on Thursday that appeared to be circumventing its ban on former President Donald Trump by posting messages he shared on his own website,” NBC reported.
“On Thursday morning, a Twitter accounts with the handle ‘@DJTDesk’ appeared on Twitter,” the report continued. “The account’s bio section stated that the handle would be featuring ‘Posts copied from Save America on behalf of the 45th POTUS; Originally composed via DonaldJTrump/Desk’.”
“Within hours, the account was suspended,” the report added.
A Twitter spokesperson told NBC News: “As stated in our ban evasion policy, we’ll take enforcement action on accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account.”
The development of Twitter banning some users who share Donald Trump’s statements follows upon Facebook’s decision to maintain its temporary suspension.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump lashed out at Big Tech giants that colluded to keep him from speaking to the American people on their platforms.
“What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country,” Trump wrote on his new digital platform.
