Donald Trump Permanently Banned From Twitter, Even If He Runs For Office In The Future
The company’s chief financial officer explained Trump’s future on Twitter if he decides to throw his hat back into the political ring. During his presidency, Trump communicated with his global audience from dawn to dusk as many of his controversial tweets were trending on the Internet was completely ejected from the platform.
There were accusations that Trump had been censored and his MAGA followers found a replacement home on Parler, but after the insurrection at the Capitol following Trump’s “Stop The Steal” rally in Washington, D.C., Parler—for now—is a thing of the past. Twitter has certain policies for heads of state and their inclusion, and since there are rumors that Trump plans on running for office within the future, it’s speculated that he could make a return. Not consistent with the corporate , he won’t.
He said “When you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Twitter CFO Ned Segal told CNBC today (February 10). “Our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence. He was removed when he was president and there’d be no difference for anybody who’s a public official once they’ve been removed from the service.”
There were some rumors that Twitter suffered an excellent loss in users after banning the ex-president. “We added 40 million people to our DAU [daily active user count] last year, and 5 million half-moon ,” Segal said. “In January, we added more DAU than the typical of the last four Januarys, so hopefully that provides people a way for the momentum we’ve got from all the diligence we’ve done on the service.”
Meanwhile, Trump stated that he may build his own platform and possible party within the future.
