Twitter Ban: I'll set up my own social media site - Donald Trump

Twitter Ban: I'll set up my own social media site - Donald Trump







Trump sent a series of tweets from the official @POTUS account in an attempt to circumvent his ban, accusing the company of stifling free speech.

A Tweet gathered by THEWATCH NEWS from @POTUS reveals that Trump tweeted saying, I will create my own social media website. The President tweeted this after his personal account @realDonaldTrump was permanently suspended and the post was later deleted by Twitter.

"As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, 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," Trump wrote."

"Twitter may be a private company, but without the government's gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long," Trump went on.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has been a bugbear from Trump and other conservatives for some time.

It states: "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."

This offers legal protection for sites like Twitter and Facebook for what third parties post. "I predicted this would happen," Trump said.

"We have been negotiating with various other sites, and will have a big announcement soon, while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future."

Trump returns, on the @POTUS account, and says he is looking "at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future."

They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely."

  "For government accounts, such as @POTUS and @WhiteHouse, we will not suspend those accounts but will take action to limit their use."

Several prominent supporters of the president have been suspended from Twitter in the past week, with many moving to Parler, an alternative site popular with conservatives.

However, Trump has given no indication that he will join Parler and the site is facing pressure from Google and Apple to introduce a content moderation policy if it wants continued access to their download stores.
