No turning back for Trump on Twitter.
For former US President Trump, there is no going back on Twitter. His account remains permanently blocked, a social network executive told CNBC news channel. Twitter will not allow a twitterer to return after inciting violence and being removed from the platform, finance chief Ned Segal said.
Twitter shut down Trump’s private account @realDonaldTrump over the then president’s involvement in the storming of Washington parliament early this year. Initially, the tech company suspended access; then it was blocked. For Trump, the account, which had over 90 million followers on Twitter, was his primary communication means.
These days, the US parliament is investigating the ex-president’s role in the assault of his supporters on the Capitol. President Biden’s rival Democrats want to punish him for instigating an uprising. They want to prevent him from ever making another shot at the White House.
