Twitter explains why it hasn’t suspended Trump’s account

Coming under pressure from Sen. Kamala Harris recently to suspend President Trump’s account, Twitter sought to clarify its rules for politicians Tuesday. While saying ’world leaders are not above our policies’, Twitter said ’direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day’ are generally not in violation of rules.

I would love to see the shitstorm that would come down on Twitter if they did ban the president.

Look at the CNN headline and then watch the Project Veritas CNN insider video who recorded Zucker tell his staff that this is the story. Big time collusion between Dems and MSM.

She wouldn't be interfering with a political opponent would she? I hear that's an impeachable offense.

Why would they? They make a ton of money off Trump

Because it's a public forum that is used by the various branches of government to interact with the public? And doing so would almost assuredly result in Bad Things™ happening to them from the other branches of government, no matter which president they did this to. I swear it's like the KoolAid Cult doesn't understand that. "Treat the political elites just like us!"

Because they aren’t in charge of free speech.

Banning Trump would red pill so many moderate liberals who still believe in freedom of speech... so while the woke left masquerading as liberals hate free speech, the majority of Americans still value it. Imagine taking a time machine back to the 90s and telling your average liberal that the right would be defending free speech and the left would be championing censorship. They wouldn't believe you- but the woke left is today's religious right. Imposing on others to behave in a manner they deem acceptable, while not even living up to their own standards. It's why Bill Maher has been under fire from the SJWs recently, he's a classical liberal who isn't politically correct.

Great! Trump has not even come close to braking the fragile and nebulous Twitter community guide lines! Naked attempt by DNC to cut off a popular mode of communication for trump! In fact she should be banned for suggesting some else should be banned!🤒🤪. Jack dorsey will ban whom ever he likes!

I agree with the decision, because the only thing scarier than knowing what is going on inside his head is NOT knowing what's going on inside his head.

I'd love it if they banned Trump. First of all it would show liberals how totalitarian the leftists in their party are, and how manipulative the Silicon valley leftists with which leftist media and politicians collude are. Then Twitter would lose a massive user base, as conservatives, journalists, and those who hate watch followed the Commander in Chief to an alternative such as Gab.

Regardless of your opinion of the president and his tweets, fairly sure I heard that since he uses Twitter as his defacto platform to announce statements/policy/etc. that they can't suspended him. Similar to how elected officials aren't allowed to block people, it counts as a public forum. Once he is no longer president, not sure if this will still apply so we will see how that plays out.

Trump should just move to an alternative social media platform like Gab or Telegram.

They know that if they ban the president they'll lose followers and from both sides of the political spectrum. Think about it: Trump is currently the life blood of CNN and Twitter. If he went to some obscure platform that thing would take off in a day and Twitter would be barren.

You can't ban him because he'd effectively launch Gab as a major competitor
