New York | Twitter, which has decided to ban former President Donald Trump from its platform for repeated incitement to violence, will not let him come back even if he were to be a candidate for the White House again, the chief financial officer of the company.
“According to our rules, when you are kicked out of the platform, you are kicked out of the platform, whether you are a commentator, a CFO, or a former or current politician,” Ned Segal said on the news channel on Wednesday. CNBC Financials.
Donald Trump “was banned when he was president. No difference is made for politicians whether they are still in service or not, ”added Mr. Segal.
In January, after supporters of the Republican billionaire invaded Capitol Hill, Twitter suspended and then deleted Donald Trump’s profile. The network has also purged many extremist accounts that supported the former president, including 70,000 affiliated with the conspiracy QAnon movement.
The ouster of Donald Trump, whose account was followed by 88 million subscribers, was not to the liking of his fans, nor of some defenders of online freedoms, who saw it as a sign of inordinate power platforms.
That hasn’t stopped Twitter from seeing the number of so-called “monetizable” users increase more than usual in January.
