Trump Banned from Social Media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram– What’s Next?
January 2021 marked a pivotal moment in history that Americans will likely never forget. The President of the United States has been banned permanently from the Social Media giant, Twitter. Facebook has also shut down the President’s ability to post updates, including on Instagram.
Twitter, a known Liberal social media platform, is widely recognized as a viciously anti-Conservative hen house of trolling keyboard warriors. Long-time users find the app to be full of venomous hate against all things promoting Conservative or Christian viewpoints. Users are permitted to berate, attack, provoke, and demean other users, while using fake names & remaining anonymous. It is largely attractive to “trolls” around the world who vastly outnumber Republicans and Conservatives. Twitter has done nothing to prevent such attacks, yet has blatantly silenced President Trump, alleging violation of terms of service.
As Conservative & Republican channels, social media pages, and websites begin to become known and grow exponentially, Trump’s Supporters have been placing a solid focus on where to go next to follow upcoming messages from Donald Trump.

Republican & Conservative Mass Exodus Has Commenced
Many on social media are outraged by the bans by Twitter & Facebook, and have announced their departure. The hostility has been brewing for a while, ever since Facebook and Twitter began doing “fact checks” against Republican & Conservative posts, stating so many were inaccurate. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when the founders knowingly not only silenced Trump, but his followers.
With so many leaving all together, this may drastically affect the income from advertisers on the platforms, as well as stock. While a few of these platforms have been sitting on the sidelines in a “break-glass-in-case” scenario, the time has finally come where Republicans and Conservatives have become so repulsed by the left wing tactics, that their mass exodus will indeed show big tech that Trump Supporters will not be silenced anymore.
Leading Outspoken Conservative Ben Shapiro Blasts Off on Bans
The Ben Shapiro Show released a January 8, 2021 backlash firing back at Facebook regarding the Social Media ban.
“The reason that they are doing this is because, they believe, if they appease the Democrats… if they start using their tech platforms in order to start shutting down alternative points of view, then the Democrats will leave them alone. In other words if they just become part of the mainstream, establishment media apparatus, echoing only the messages of the Democratic party, then the Democrats will not regulate them.” -Ben Shapiro
