SOCIAL MEDIA/TWITTER: “Only a few hours after Twitter announced a ban on President Donald Trump’s @realdonaldtrump account, he has attempted to tweet from at least two other accounts under his control. Tweets posted to the official @POTUS account were swiftly deleted, and after the same thread was posted on the Trump campaign’s @TeamTrump account, it has been suspended entirely. An account for the Trump campaign’s digital director is also suspended…

In the deleted tweets, Trump complained about the treatment he’s receiving, and claimed he is negotiating with ‘various other sites’ while also looking at building his own platform ‘in the near future.'”
