President Donald Trump’s fans have dumped popular microblogging platform, Twitter, after he was suspended.
Kemi Filani News earlier reported that the controversial POTUS was kicked out of the platform over in inciting tweets.
Earlier in the day, Twitter permanently suspended Trump’s account.
This comes two days after the siege at the Capitol that led to the death of five people and few hours after he tweeted that he will not be attending his successor, Biden’s inauguration.
Explaining why they took the decision, twitter wrote: “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.”
A few hours after President Trump’s account was suspended, “Goodbye Twitter” started trending as his diehard supporters began to deactivate their accounts.
“Goodbye Twitter friends. See you @parler,” said one user.
Another follower revealed he has lost 400 followers in 3 days, He wrote; “I’m a small MAGA account and I have lost 400 followers in 3 days. Goodbye Twitter. You don’t want me, I don’t want you. I’m at Parler @snakeoil. I hope PATRIOTS will come join me! Flag of United States.”
The news of Trump’s suspension also crashed Parler website, likely as a result of new users overwhelming their servers. The outage reportedly lasted less than an hour.
Some top conservatives also shared Parler accounts on Twitter, encouraging their followers to migrate there.
“Follow me on PARLER access it directly through website don’t try to use the App,” Angela Stanton-King wrote on Twitter , sharing a screenshot of her Parler handle.
