Twitter Confirms Donald Trump Could Be Banned From Inauguration Day

Twitter Confirms Donald Trump Could Be Banned From Inauguration Day

Now that the Electoral College has voted for Joe Biden to win the 2020 US Election, it's certain he will take over the White House on January 20.

Donald Trump's days as President are officially numbered and there's one thing that he holds dear that he might have to say goodbye to: Twitter.

Since the election (and even before), the social media site has been repeatedly flagging his posts with warnings about factual accuracy.

Trump's tweets that contain completely unsubstantiated claims about electoral fraud and the Democratic Party attempting to 'steal the election' have not been removed, just marked with messages suggesting that they could contain disputed or misleading content.

Normally, posts like these from regular folk would get a user banned, however because Trump is President, he is allowed to tweet what he wants with little impunity because he's classed as a person of interest.

A person of interest must have more than 100,000 followers, be a verified account, and perform some kind of governmental or elected role.

Donald Trump Has Left The White House Ahead Of Joe Biden Inauguration

published at5 days ago

A Twitter spokesperson has told Forbes that Trump will have to follow the same guidelines as everyone else and there won't be any 'special rules' for him.

Trump is trying to skirt around those rules by seeking a repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects social media platforms from liability for content that users post. If that were to get through, then Twitter wouldn't be held liable if Trump posted misinformation or inaccuracies.

Of course, Trump could just stop posting inaccurate, false or misleading posts about the 2020 Election and then he would be able to keep his profile intact.

However, if he continues along his warpath of claiming there was fraud, sabotage or any other nefarious activity during the November 3 ballot, then he could have to kiss his sweet, sweet tweets goodbye.
