On Friday night, Twitter announced the permanent termination of President Donald Trump’s account on the grounds that he might further incite violence.
Predictably, the suppression of the president’s Twitter angered Trump. A senior government official told Politico that he had become “ballistic.”
After the ban, Trump posted a tweet from the official @POTUS Twitter account, but his post was deleted almost immediately.
Similarly, the President subsequently shared the news in his @TeamTrump account in vain. This has been deleted and the account has been suspended.
The official also stated that Trump is “scrambling to figure out what his options are,” according to Politico.
Trump said in the now deleted tweet that he has been “negotiating with various other sites” and will announce major news soon. Trump also stated that his team “is considering the possibility of establishing our own platform in the near future.”
Parler, a “free speech” platform that many people think Trump might join in the next step, has now been removed from the Google Play store. Apple is expected to follow suit and delete the application.
Facebook also barred Trump from accessing the site “indefinitely”.
Trump’s deportation from Twitter-which has defined most of his tenure-has caused anger and outrage online.
His critics celebrated his disabled people, especially Hillary Clinton.

However, the allies call it “silence” and “censorship.”

Although some people say that Twitter prohibits the publication of the First Amendment, this action did not violate that law or any other law.
