Ostensibly, you can’t just make any post on Twitter that could violate their policies and get away with it as you could either get your account blocked or removed from the platform, well of course unless you are a world leader.
The big gallant Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, called “tweets.”
The US President Donald Trump who has severally violated the Twitter policies and got slash back from users protesting for his account to be banned by the platform, responding to it, Twitter said the platform is there to serve and help advance the global, public conversation.
Twitter also stated.
Elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation because of their outsized impact on our society. blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets, would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.
We review Tweets by leaders within the political context that defines them, and enforce our rules accordingly. No one person’s account drives Twitter’s growth, or influences these decisions. We work hard to remain unbiased with the public interest in mind.
We are working to make Twitter the best place to see and freely discuss everything that matters. We believe that’s the best way to help our society make progress. Further reading
