Twitter locked President Trump’s account after he shared NY Post columnist’s email

·1 min read

Twitter said it locked President Trump’s account on Monday after the commander-in-chief violated company policies by sharing the email address of a New York Post columnist in a chirp.

The social media giant confirmed to the Daily News on Tuesday that the coronavirus-stricken President had his account locked until the post was removed.

Twitter’s privacy information policy states that users are not allowed to post other people’s private information without their consent.

A chirp from Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account posted yesterday has been plastered over with the message: “This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules.” In his next tweet, at 6:23 p.m., he declared: “Will be back on the Campaign Trail soon!!! The Fake News only shows the Fake Polls.”

President Trump has continued to use his favored social media platform throughout his bout with COVID-19. His severe case of the virus landed him in Walter Reed military hospital for three nights. He returned to the White House on Monday.
