Trump supports Nigeria in decision to block Twitter
The 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, who was blocked by all liberal American social media, expressed support for the President of Nigeria, whose message was censored by Twitter.
“Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President. More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech – all voices should be heard,” Trump said.
According to Trump, all countries should be more decisive and act in the same way against censorship.
On June 1, the President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari made a reference to the country’s 30-month civil war in 1967-1970 on his Twitter, the moderators of the social network reacted with lightning speed and deleted the post, which ultimately turned into the removal of Twitter from the Internet space of Nigeria.
Then things got even worse. Twitter was ridiculed by the international community for commenting on the incident. Twitter argued that a free and open internet is "an essential human right in modern society," and everyone, without exception, remembered to Jack Dorsey how he behaved towards Donald Trump.
“Competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President. But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?” Trump said.

Access to the free and #OpenInternet is an essential human right in modern society.
Unblock President Trump and stop with the hypocritical virtue signaling. https://t.co/thwYpJnUGq
Curious. In Twitter’s own words, they are willfully denying Donald Trump “an essential human right in modern society.” https://t.co/nKeH1Ym4Qy— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) June 5, 2021
“Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr Trump’s suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols,” Facebook’s head of global affairs Nick Clegg said in the post.
Exactly the same scenario is now being played out in Russia. Twitter is available throughout Russia, but refuses to remove publications and content that contradict the current legislation of the Russian Federation, which also jeopardizes the future of Twitter in Russia.
