President Trump’s tweets have been a source of controversy since the start of his presidency. But recently, his tweets have taken a more unexpected turn as he has taken to promoting specific brands and products. From tweeting about Hollister and The Verge to retweeting content from Potus Trump, the president’s social media presence is becoming increasingly commercialized. In this blog post, we will explore how the President’s tweets are impacting businesses and what implications these endorsements might have for society.
Twitter permanently suspends Donald Trump’s account
Twitter has permanently suspended Donald Trump’s account, citing “the risk of further incitement of violence” in the wake of the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol.
The company had previously placed a temporary ban on Trump’s account after he posted a video in which he falsely claimed that the election had been stolen from him and told his supporters to “fight like hell.” That ban was set to expire on Inauguration Day, but Twitter decided to extend it indefinitely after determining that Trump was still inciting violence.
In a statement, Twitter said that it had “permanently suspended” Trump’s account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action,” the company said.
Trump responded to the news with a statement posted on the @POTUS45 account, which is now also suspended.
“As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone totally Silicon Valley,” Trump said. “I will not be SILENCED!”
Why Twitter decided to ban Trump
Twitter has been increasingly vocal about its decision to ban Donald Trump from its platform, and it’s no surprise that the company has come to this decision. In the past, Twitter has been accused of being too lenient with regard to content that could be seen as abusive or hateful. For example, in 2017, Twitter was criticized for not banning Milo Yiannopoulos after he made numerous derogatory statements about women and minorities.
This time, however, Twitter has taken a much harder line against Trump. The company cites two specific reasons for why Trump was banned: 1) his failure to adhere to Twitter’s rules and 2) the “risk of further incitement of violence.”
Trump has had a long history of violating Twitter’s rules. For example, he has repeatedly tweeted messages that are abusive or threatening towards other users. He also frequently posts misinformation, which is against Twitter’s policies. In addition, Trump often retweets messages from accounts that promote violence or hatred.
The other reason for Trump’s ban is the risk of further incitement of violence. This is especially relevant in light of the recent Capitol Hill riot, which was partially inspired by Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen from him. In the days leading up to the riot, Trump had posted a series of tweets urging his supporters to come to Washington DC and protest on January 6th. These tweets violated Twitter’s rules against inciting violence.
After evaluating these two reasons, Twitter decided that Donald Trump should be
The reaction to Trump’s ban on Twitter
The reaction to Trump’s ban on Twitter was swift and harsh. Many people were quick to point out the hypocrisy of a president who claims to care about free speech but is happy to censor his opponents. Others noted that this is yet another example of Trump’s authoritarian tendencies. Some even went so far as to call for a complete boycott of Twitter.
It’s clear that Trump’s ban on Twitter has not gone over well with the public. Whether or not this will have any impact on his popularity remains to be seen.
What this means for the future of social media
The future of social media is unclear, but there are a few potential outcomes. One is that platforms will continue to be used for political purposes and that the use of social media will become more polarized. Another possibility is that social media will become more regulated, which could lead to less freedom of expression. Finally, it’s possible that social media will simply become less popular and that people will increasingly use other forms of communication.
It is clear that Donald Trump’s use of Twitter has had a profound impact on the way in which we communicate and interact with one another. His tweets have been able to reach millions of people around the world, giving him a platform to share his thoughts, ideas, and opinions. By using Twitter as his main form of communication, he has shown how powerful it can be for connecting with people from all walks of life. Hopefully this will inspire others to take advantage of social media platforms in order to spread their messages more widely and effectively.
