Nigerian pop star, ElDee the Don, has questioned President Donald Trump’s ban from Twitter.
Writing on his own Twitter page, he insisted that banning someone from a social media platform because of their opinions is “tyranny”.
El Dee wrote: “Banning someone from a social media platform simply because you don’t agree with their opinions is a classic demonstration of tyranny.”
Twitter Inc has permanently banned Trump’s personal account for repeated rules violations, marking the most high-profile punishment the social-media company has ever imposed.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company wrote in a blog post on Friday.
It would be recalled that Mr Trump was locked out of his account for 12 hours on Wednesday after he called the people who stormed the US Capitol “patriots”.
