Reports indicate that Trump, who will no longer have protected "world leader" status on Twitter starting on Inauguration Day, will be strictly moderated and treated just like any other random Twitter user who spreads "conspiracy theories" – the direct consequence of Trump doing absolutely nothing to stop Twitter censorship like he promised to do.
In the "principles & approach" section of its user guidelines, Twitter explains that "if a Tweet from a world leader does violate the Twitter Rules but there is a clear public interest value to keeping the Tweet on the service, we may place it behind a notice that provides context about the violation and allows people to click through should they wish to see the content."
Should Biden end up being crowned as "president," however, Trump will lose this protection immediately after the inauguration ceremony, according to a Twitter spokesperson who reportedly spoke to Forbes.
Keep in mind that the @POTUS handle is separate from the @realDonaldTrump handle, the former having only about 33.1 million followers, as of this writing, compared to 88.6 million followers for the latter – and Trump would seem to post mostly to the latter.
Even if Trump refuses to concede – and why would he, considering the prolific fraud that took place? – Twitter is still planning to seize the @POTUS account and hand it over to Biden.
None of this had to happen, though. Trump could have delivered on his promise to restructure the Communications Decency Act (CDA), removing the antiquated Section 230 immunity protections that have long been abused by Big Tech.
Not only Twitter but Facebook is also guilty of acting both as a content provider and publisher, which is prohibited under the CDA. None of the tech giants, quite frankly, qualify for immunity protections from lawsuits, and yet they all still have it.
Since there are still a few weeks to go before Inauguration Day, we will leave room for perhaps a "surprise" or two from the Trump campaign. Perhaps the kraken really will get released just in time to stop the election heist, and the tech giants that helped make it happen, from occurring.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to hold our breath on that one, but you never know when it comes to Trump, right? In the meantime, it cannot be stressed enough that if Republicans want to have any voice whatsoever in a potential Biden administration that they need to step up and do something.
Unless they all migrate to Parler and Rumble, GOPers will forever be silenced by the big guys that most people use come January – and this is not hyperbole. The left has made it abundantly clear that conservative free speech is not to be tolerated, and leftists will do everything in their power to extinguish it as quickly as possible.
"If you're still on Twitter ... WHY?!" asked one Newspunch commenter in response to the news. "Get off now!!!"
Another wrote that Twitter is filled with "typical tyrants," implicating all those who support these tyrants as "accessories ... just like Facebooks' co-offenders."
"All guilty by association," this person added.
