Donald Trump is trying (and failing) to get around Twitter’s ban

Read Time:1 Minute, 31 Second

Only a few hours after Twitter announced a ban on President Donald Trump’s @realdonaldtrump account, he has attempted to tweet from at least two other accounts under his control. Tweets posted to the official @POTUS account were swiftly deleted, and after the same thread was posted on the Trump campaign’s @TeamTrump account, it has been suspended entirely. An account for the Trump campaign’s digital director is also suspended.


In a response statement, Twitter cited its ban evasion policy, which says that if an account is being used to evade a ban, it’s subject to suspension.

In the deleted tweets, Trump complained about the treatment he’s receiving, and claimed he is negotiating with “various other sites” while also looking at building his own platform “in the near future.” The accounts also proclaimed “We will not be SILENCED!” before they were shut down. How having his own platform would align with his stated objective to repeal Section 230 (the law that would protect his platform from being held directly responsible for what people post on it) is unclear.

So far, the president has not attempted to release a statement via the White House website or called a press conference. According to reports, the Trump campaign has not emailed its followers in over 48 hours — a rare occurrence. Someone in the Trump administration emailed the text of the tweet to White House pool reporter Hans Nichols after seeing the tweets on the @POTUS account.

Twitter spokesperson: “As we’ve said, using another account to try to evade a suspension is against our rules. We have taken steps to enforce this with regard to recent Tweets from the @POTUS account. For government accounts, such as @POTUS and @WhiteHouse, we will not suspend those accounts permanently but will take action to limit their use.

  1. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
    I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please
    share. Many thanks!

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but
    I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my
    comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours
    and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  4. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because
    of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be
    really appreciated!

  5. Hi, I do believe your website could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic website!
