Official POTUS Account


Trump attempts to make statement from Official @POTUS Twitter account following the platform's removal of his personal account; Twitter then deletes it and locks the account's ability to share new tweets: After President Donald Trump's personal Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) was permanently removed, he attempted to make a statement via the official government @POTUS Twitter account. "As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech," Trump wrote in the now-deleted tweets criticizing the platform's censorship. "Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me." In the posts Trump criticized the broad immunity offered to these private companies under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and hinted at the possibility of starting his own platform.
