Tech giant, Twitter has confirmed that former US President, Donald Trump’s Twitter ban will remain forever, even if he runs for another presidential election.
This was disclosed by Twitter’s chief financial officer, Ned Segal, in an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box”.
When asked if the platform would restore Trump’s account if he ran again and was elected president.
Ned Segal replied, saying Trump’s ban is permanent and it will never be restored.
“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO or you are a former or current public official.
“Our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we would have to remove them from the service and our policies don’t allow people to come back.
“He was removed when he was president, and there’d be no difference for anybody who [was] a public official once they’ve been removed from the service.”
