Folkevalgte Donald Trump fik lukket sin Twitter-konto tidligere på året, da hans opdateringer ifølge det sociale medie opfordrede til vold. Twitter har til gengæld ingen problemer med Zabihullah Mujahid, officiel talsmand for Taliban-bevægelsen, der rutinemæssigt tager ansvar for myrderier, og dagligt hylder bevæbnede jihadister.
“As a Taliban spokesman, Mujahid communicates Taliban’s message to Afghan and other international media. He is also responsible for confirming or denying group’s involvement in attacks across Afghanistan. On he also releases several propaganda videos on his twitter account showing Taliban’s achievements throughout the conflict. … On 21 January 2019, Mujahid claimed responsibility for an attack on training centre of National Directorate of Security (NDS) which killed over 100 security personnel.“ (Wiki, Zabiullah Mujahid)
“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.” (Twitter, 8. januar 2021)
