Why ban of @realDonaldTrump proves Twitter not ‘just a platform’

President Trump railed against Twitter Friday night, blasting the social media giant for “banning free speech” and hinting that he “will have a big announcement soon” in which he’ll designate some other platform to carry his messages.

“We will not be SILENCED!” he said — resorting to an old-fashioned press release to get the statement out.

“Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” he wrote.

“They are all about promoting a Radical Left Platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely.”

Trump had to release the statement directly to reporters covering the White House.

Earlier Friday, Twitter banned his civilian, @RealDonaldTrump account entirely.

And when he tried to issue Friday night’s statement on his government @POTUS account, Twitter censored it, while leaving the account online.

Muzzled on one account and censored on the other, Trump’s statement lasted about the length of three of his formerly beloved tweets:

“As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me. Twitter may be a private company, but without the government’s gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long.

“I predicted this would happen. We have been negotiating with various other sites, and will have a big announcement soon, while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future. We will not be SILENCED!

“Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH. They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely.
