President Trump you may need to open a MySpace account to be “online”
; – because you can’t get a bandwidth anywhere else right now … even on Shopify.
DT has been banned from a handful of social media apps and social networking sites far beyond Twitter and Facebook / Instagram – triggering it earlier this week after they say they used their platforms to spark a violent Capitol uprising in the United States.
Since then … more companies have taken steps to keep their pages free of Trump, including some you never thought Prez could use, whether it publishes or consumes.
Among those who blocked / restricted the content of Trump and / or Trump – Pinterest (for #StoptheSteal items), Shopify (for MAGA and other related products), Twitch (no more streaming of Trump), Snapchat (the account of Trump), Reddit (the thread r / The_Donald is dead) and even TikTok (as Trump was) trying to ban himself, ironically enough).
Remember Twitter he pulled the plug permanently in Trump’s Twitter account – his platform for the transition in the last few years – quoting additional potential calls for violence, directly or indirectly … this after the expiration of Trump’s 12-hour suspension and he wrote again on Twitter to his “patriots”.
Twitter’s move to charge it forever also came after Facebook / Instagram do something similar … suspend his account indefinitely, at least until Bidenthe inauguration is done.
There’s one place Trump might turn to to get his voice back on the Internet – Parler (a far-right social networking site / app) is still open for business … but it’s exposed to risk of being blacklisted in mainstream app stores.
Google has already mixed it up completely – which means you can’t download it anymore if you’re an Android user – but Apple hasn’t done it yet. On Friday, they gave Parler a 24-hour deadline to provide stricter guidance on job regulation … but it is still available from now on.
