Twitter Finally Breaks Its Silence on Why Trump’s Account Is Still Active

ince it first came on the scene in 2006, Twitter has become many people's primary source for news, trends, and jokes. J.K. Rowling uses it to own haters (and look at pictures of otters). Chrissy Teigen has used it to get mushy bananas. But the celebrity who appears to get the most out of Twitter is Donald Trump, the president of the United States. He tweets about celebrities. He tweets about TV shows. He tweets about sports, hurricanes, and Samuel L. Jackson's golf swing. Often, Trump's tweets are mean. But on Saturday, he crossed a line.

Many are wondering why Trump is still allowed to use Twitter after using it as a platform to bully others and (apparently) declare war. This morning, Twitter finally revealed the reason Trump's account is still allowed on the platform.
