The social media platform for which the President-elect Donald Trump has been so expressed on during his election campaign has cleared by stating that it will not hesitate to ban the Donald Trump even from Twitter if he breaks its hate speech guidelines.
Twitter Says It Will Ban President-Elect Donald Trump’s Account
Much has been said about the effect that Twitter had in the US elections, including why Donald Trump owes its success largely to the scope of their tweets and the way it is handled in the social network. The network also saw an increase in false news favoring the then candidate, and Trump uses his account to divert attention from issues that cause controversy.
The truth is that the president-elect seems to be fond of Twitter, a medium used to communicate official news and those things that seem to lose sleep at dawn.
Perhaps because of the known animosity he has for the press is that the Republican choose to go directly to the public through 140 characters on Twitter. Even some of his advisers have suggested not to talk to the press, saying that when there is news you can publish directly in the middle.
Due to the constant attention to the personal account of President-elect, the company Twitter has been the focus of these elections, which could represent an opportunity for a company that has failed to monetize its popularity.
On Wednesday, Debra Lee, Twitter’s board did not hesitate to say that the network played an important role in the electoral victory of Trump. Company representatives did not respond to a request for information, but several experts said that the way Trump tweeting, so different and looser than typical accounts of politicians, helped to connect directly with voters.
Whether real or perceived the Twitter effect on the elections, is now the center of the daily conversation, largely thanks to the account of the future US president. As the President-elect Donald Trump used Twitter for the past 18 months as an amplifier for his views and bombast. Even he also attacked the media, insulted women, praised himself, and lied outright as we mentioned earlier.
One of the President-elect Donald Trump’s recent claims states that “I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally”. A spokesperson of Twitter wrote that “The Twitter Rules prohibit violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct, and multiple account abuse, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies”.
When it was asked that whether this could apply to someone like Donald Trump, who has had a great and memorable history of flirting with the rules, then the spokesperson replied that “The Twitter Rule applies to all accounts, including verified accounts as well”. But, the spokesperson did not directly outed Trump’s name, however, the intimation is very clear that what Twitter actually intended.
ISIS is taking credit for the terrible stabbing attack at Ohio State University by a Somali refugee who should not have been in our country.

President-elect Donald Trump claimed that “Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who allegedly carried out an attack injuring 11 students at Ohio State University, should not have been in our country. Artan was a legal permanent US resident, whose family had fled Somalia for Pakistan in 2007”.
However, the main fact is here is the social media Twitter has been simply putting its foot down in recent weeks to mark out a number of alt-right accounts in order to restrict abuse and hate speech on the social network.
