Minutes after Donald Trump accused Twitter of planning with his political enemies to silence him after the social media platform permanently suspended his account, the micro-blogging site on Saturday (IST) instantly deleted new tweets from the US President from an official government account.
Trump tweeted, “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.”
In a series of tweets from the official @POTUS account, Trump said, “Twitter may be a private company, but without the government’s gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long. I predicted this would happen.
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.”

“We will not be SILENCED!” Trump tweeted from the @POTUS government account, with 33.4 million followers, after Trump’s @realDonaldTrump personal account was permanently banned by Twitter.
“Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” the US President wrote in the now-deleted tweets.
Twitter and Facebook’s actions to shut off two of the largest megaphones Mr Trump has relied on for years to communicate with the public highlights the difficult position social-media platforms face in regulating controversial content on their platforms.
Mr Trump had more than 88 million followers on Twitter and more than 35 million on Facebook.
