Trump Tweeted Through POTUS, Twitter Deleted Them Immediately

For a brief moment, he managed to tweet anyhow — not from @realDonaldTrump, his suspended account, but rather the official @POTUS account reserved for the current President of the United States, one that will be handed over to Joe Biden on January 20th. His message, before it was deleted, cryptically suggested that he will “have a big announcement soon” and that he was looking “at the possibilities of building out our own platform.” Trump is currently deplatformed from most social media.

Twitter Permanently Suspends Donald Trump

After years of using Twitter as a legislation tool, sounding board and occasional diary, President Donald Trump was permanently banned from the platform on Friday.

“I have time for all of you today” – Kiddwaya blows hot after being dragged nonstop

Reality star, Terseer Kiddwaya is currently trending on Twitter after being dragged over and over again today. The 27-year-old entrepreneur started the day by sharing a video of himself bathing in his luxury apartment in Dubai. The video barely lasted a minute before trolls attacked the billionaire son for acting immature. As if that was it, Kiddwaya made another post discouraging his fans from comparing him to other reality stars. This ended up being misunderstood as subtly shading the 2020 BBNaija winner, Laycon; this unleashed a second wave of dragging. In another tweet, Kiddwaya openly declared to be ready to take it all and fight back anyone who attacks him again. “I have time for all of you today,” he wrote.
