Trump is Planning A Social Media Return

For more than ten weeks Americans have lived without regular communications from Donald Trump, their former president, who had a habit of expressing his thoughts daily and sometimes 50 times a day in abrasive messages on Twitter.

Now, a spokesman for the former President has disclosed that Trump will launch his own social media platform with the intention to "completely redefine the game". Speaking to Fox News, Trump's spokesman said, "I do think that we're going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months." 

Trump had been a prolific poster on that platform before and during his presidency but was banned from Twitter following the January's deadly riots at the US Capitol in Washington DC that saw five people including a police officer killed, and shook the foundations of American democracy.

Twitter subsequently permanently suspended Mr Trump's account @realDonaldTrump stating that he was "permanently suspended... due to the risk of further incitement of violence". 

Donald Trump used Twitter as a way, for more than 10 years, to bypass the traditional media and speak directly to voters. Mr Trump was initially locked out of his Twitter account for 12 hours in January after he called the people who stormed the US Capitol "patriots". Hundreds of his supporters entered the complex as the US Congress attempted to certify Joe Biden's victory in last year's presidential election. Mr Trump was impeached by Congress for his actions but acquitted after most of the  Republican party senators did not support a vote to convict.

Facebook, which also indefinitely suspended Mr Trump in January, has asked its independent oversight board to decide whether the ban should stand.

Twitter last week said it would seek public input on if, when and how it should ban world leaders with 'controversial views'. Twitter warned then it would ban Mr Trump "permanently" if he breached the platform's rules again. After being allowed back on Twitter, Mr Trump posted two tweets that the company cited as the final straws. The social media company said both of these tweets were "in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy".

In addition to Twitter and Facebook, Trump's accounts were also suspended on Facebook, popular gaming platform Twitch and the multimedia messaging app Snapchat.
