Even if Donald Trump returns to power again, he may never return to Twitter as the company has imposed a permanent ban on Donald Trump. Donald Trump was banned on Twitter following the Capitol Hill violence on January 6.
In an interview with CNBC, Ned Segal, CFO, Twitter, said, “The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO or you are a former or current public official,”.
Twitter in a blog mentioned that Due to the ongoing tensions in the United States, and an uptick in the global conversation in regards to the people who violently stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks. After assessing the language in these Tweets against our Glorification of Violence policy, we have determined that these Tweets are in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy and the user @realDonaldTrump should be immediately permanently suspended from the service.
