Donald Trump: Twitter banned him to prevent further incitement to violence

Especially on Twitter The elected president was active almost every day until then and has posted around 56 thousand tweets since May 2009. 89 million accounts followed him on the short message service. The lock on Twitter should apply for life – and is apparently rigorously enforced by the American operator. Tweets that Donald Trump attempted on the presidential account with the username POTUS (for “President of the United States”), were deleted shortly afterwards. In them he complained that Twitter ever sharper action against freedom of expression, behind his lock he suspected a conspiracy Twitter, in which the Democrats and the “radical left” is said to have been involved.

Surprisingly, the US President, who was first voted out and then muted, received something like backing from the Chancellor Angela Merkel. She sees the accounts blocked by Donald Trump by Facebook and Twitter critical *, as government spokesman Steffen Seibert announced on Monday afternoon (January 11, 2021). The Federal Government considers it “fundamentally problematic” that a large amount of justiciable content is also freely circulating on the Internet. The fundamental right to freedom of expression can only be interfered with “within the framework defined by the legislature, not after the decision of the corporate management of social media platforms”, according to Seibert.
