Donald Trump’s new ‘Twitter account’ is SUSPENDED for ‘violating rules’
DONALD Trump’s new Twitter account has been SUSPENDED, just one day after it was created, according to reports.
The @DJTDesk account, which was set up by his communications team to share statements, was taken down on Wednesday evening for “violating the rules.”
Trump – who boasted 88 million followers during his time in charge- was indefinitely suspended from Twitter in January, following the shocking US Capitol riot that left five dead.
This new @DJTDesk account appeared to be an innovative way to allow the former President to communicate directly with users on various social media platforms.
However, that has quickly fallen through just a day after its inception due to a “violation of rules,” according to the Mail.
Only yesterday, Trump blasted Facebook and "radical left lunatics" as another social media ban was upheld.
During a quickly mustered statement online he said: “Facebook, Twitter and Google were a "total disgrace and am embarrassment to our Country."
"Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before,” it read.
"The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.”
The site's independent Oversight Board made the decision to uphold on Wednesday morning.
In a statement they said: "Given the seriousness of the violations and the ongoing risk of violence, Facebook was justified in suspending Mr. Trump’s accounts on January 6 and extending that suspension on January 7.”
However, the board did insist that it was "not appropriate" for the board to indefinitely suspend the then-president.
"It is not permissible for Facebook to keep a user off the platform for an undefined period, with no criteria for when or whether the account will be restored," the board determined, adding that Facebook "did not follow a clear, published procedure."
Despite keeping Trump restricted from the platform, the board ruled that "within six months of today, Facebook must review this matter and decide a new penalty."
This penalty, the board said, would have to be either imposing a time-limit on the suspension of deleting Trump's account entirely.
