In a series of misfortunate events that led to the former President’s Twitter ban, it seems like things will not lighten up. President Trump has been permanently removed from Twitter.
Twitter’s CFO Ned Segal confirmed the status of Trump’s account in an interview.
In an interview with CNBC’s Squawk Box program on Wednesday, Ned said that running for public office again would not reverse the ban the company handed out to Trump in the aftermath of the US Capitol riot on January 6th.
How Twitter Works
Regardless of the outcome, the @realDonaldTrump will remain suspended for good, Segal said.
“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Segal told CNBC, “whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official. Remember, our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we have to remove them from the service and our policies don’t allow people to come back.”
In the series of events so far, Twitter was the only Social Media Platform to Permanently ban Trump’s account. This all happened due to Trump’s denying of the results of the 2020s Presidential Elections. Not only that, but the ban was also the indirect result of the riot that took place.
A serious blow to trump
Twitter was a major and probably the only way for Trump to communicate. His absence on the platform has dealt a serious blow to his ability to spread false information about the election results and remain an active participant in discussions around the Biden presidency’s first few weeks.
