An account sharing posts from former US President Donald Trump’s ‘desk’ page – and operated by his PAC – was banned by Twitter after angry Democrats flooded the platform with demands to “#RemoveTrumpJack”.
The hashtag, aimed at Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, had over 20,000 tweets on Wednesday, hours after the account @DJTDesk appeared on the platform. The account explicitly said it was “Not Trump Tweeting” but posting content generated by the 45th US president on his own website, called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.”
The first tweet from the account was dated 12:42 am on Wednesday, just hours after the glorified blog marked Trump’s return from the virtual wilderness. Until it was banned, it reposted content from the blog, but also mocked the critics calling for its removal as “LOOPY LIBERALS.”
