Twitter’s Trump ban is permanent, even if he runs for office again
This is nice and all, but I do have a question.
Let’s say he does run again and wins. Is Twitter coming out and proclaiming that they won’t hand the official POTUS account over to him because he’s Trump and he’s banned? If that’s what they’re saying here, great. Way to take an honest to god important stand, guys. But if it only means that he’s not getting RealDonaldTrump back, then we’re just going to be right back where we started the moment he gets his paws on it and none of these words mean a thing.
“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Segal told CNBC, “whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official. Remember, our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we have to remove them from the service and our policies don’t allow people to come back.”
