The former POTUS Donald Trump previously had his Twitter account suspended after a series of fake news and problematic posts on the site. Now it seems the preserved tweets from his account will be removed entirely.
According to Complex, the National Archives and Records Administration, which is an independent government agency in charge of preserving and documenting historical records, is currently working on an official online archive of Trump’s tweets during his time as the POTUS, including the tweets that got him permanently suspended from the site earlier in the year.
According to Quint Forgey’s recent Politico report, content from the @realDonaldTrump account “will not appear on Twitter” in standard or archival form.
“Given that we permanently suspended @realDonaldTrump, the content from the account will not appear on Twitter as it did previously or as archived administration accounts do currently, regardless of how NARA decides to display the data it has preserved,” a Twitter spokesperson told the publication. “Administration accounts that are archived on the service are accounts that were not in violation of the Twitter Rules.”
Currently, activists are working hard to bring back Trump’s tweets as a download via the official Trump Presidential Library site. However, it is unlikely this will bear any fruit.
On Jan. 8 of this year, after the fatal Capitol riot, Twitter announced the permanent suspension f the @realDonaldTrump account due to “the risk of further incitement of violence.” So now it seems Twitter will be free from any form of content from Donald Trump, which many people will undoubtedly rejoice in.
